Compounding Choices

A business mentor of mine hit a cord with me today. He brought up this thought that decisions could build over time in a compounding way, like interest. For example, what if making a decision to sleep in as opposed to getting up and being productive wasn’t just an isolated incident. What if every time you made a lazy decision it compounded with every other lazy decision?

Think, instead, that choosing to sleep in or choosing to give in to a poor nutrition choice just added up with every other time you make a choice like that. Those crappy decisions just bred more crappy decisions. It makes sense to me. Conversely, making great choices makes it easier to make similar choices in the future.

What if eating healthy or training consistently isn’t the hard part? What if it’s hard simply because you’ve practiced choosing against it so much?
