Reasons you can’t stick to your routine
Does this ever happen to you that you start a new initiative with all the drive in the world, with such motivation and inspiration that you bring your A-game and carefully map out a winning strategy—only to soon end up losing all your excitement and feeling as deflated as a worn-out tire? Your struggle is a common one—and something you can overcome if you understand why you can’t stick to your daily routine.
Here are some of the most common reasons you can’t stick to your routine:
1.You start strong
When you write down a to-do list, you try to make up for all those other days that you weren’t productive and didn’t have a to-do list. So you write down lots of things at once which are impossible to complete.Then you get overwhelmed and fail to complete the to-do list.And on and on the cycle goes. Instead, try being realistic about what you can get done by picking the most important things and sticking to those. Then the next try to add one or two things to the list. And keep on doing that until you’ve figured out that you can do what’s on your to-do list .
2.You forget the importance of your routine
Maybe you started out taking something seriously, but then a week into it, you’ve forgotten. Now you’re just thinking about how uncomfortable it is. Put a reminder note or other visual reminder . This is really important, because as you start to do something new, it’s too easy to forget. Put up multiple reminders, including one on your phone and one on your computer. If it’s important enough to commit to, it’s important enough to create these reminders.
3.You don’t believe in yourself
Though you make a routine ,you don’t really believe that you can do it.Thats why when you fail to complete your routine you lose your drive to try harder. It is okay to fail ,actually it is very normal to fail . But if you don’t give up you will succeed in completing your routine eventually.
So don’t give up.
Start small and believe that you can. If you believe you can, you will!
