Some Science behind This
Psychology underpinning its effectiveness. To make you happy each time to accomplish and push you forward to.
Studies have proven that multi-tasking is not only an ineffective way to get stuff done, but it’s actually harmful for your brain, and get you stressed. Researchers concluded that chronic multi-tasking makes you incapable of quickly recognizing what is and what isn’t important to fulfill your objective.
Seinfeld’s key to success is consistency and persistence. This happens because our brains are attracted to consistency, and when we break that consistency, we break the whole pattern. Committing to never breaking the chain will, over time, habituate your brain to completing the task each day. Stop procrastinating.
You know what... Seinfeld was right. And when I hear habit-forming advice from someone worth $820 million, I listen.
The compound effect is the strategy of reaping huge rewards from small, seemingly insignificant actions. You cannot improve something until you measure it. If the nose of a plane is pointed just one percent off course when it leaves LA for New York, it will end up in Delaware once it gets to the east coast. You need a deep why for doing stuff. With a why that is meaningful enough, you will do almost anything. Small choices + consistency + time = significant results. Tracking your progress and missteps is key for long-term success.
Sharing your successes publicly may sound a bit narcissistic, but there’s a good reason to boast about your achievements. Studies have shown that publicly sharing your progress can actually help motivate you to accomplish your goals. It not only makes you more accountable, but it fills a need for social connection. Accountability is a huge factor in motivating us to cross items off our to-do lists. When no one is around to say anything about an incomplete task it’s easy to push it to the next day. Providing positive reinforcement. Sharing your progress with others often results in praise for a job well done. This positive reinforcement from your social network can motivate you forward to excel.
