It’s been a little while since I wrote a blog (almost 6 months I think), it’s about time I added a new one…
As of late, I’ve been trying to tone up my craft some more. This includes beat production, music creation, mixing, and mastering, etc.
Also, I’ve been cooking up some lofi beats for this company in order to get a little side income. Just made 31 beats in 2 weeks actually.
I’ve been learning about sales funnel marketing, list building, building clientele, and all that fun stuff…
But in addition to that, I also had some rough days,
I’ve had days where I didn’t want to do anything. I didn’t want to work on music, I didn’t want to connect with others, I didn’t want to experiment with new things, and more.
I literally had days where I just watched gaming videos all day, 3+ days in a row.
At some points, it feels as if you get “burnt out” on the goals you are chasing.
After chasing a dream for so long, there seems to be a crash eventually if you don’t take breaks. And when it hits, it hits hard.
But then I discovered it doesn’t have to be this way.
If you can build a habit of at least getting 2 of the most important tasks done for the day, the rest is mainly optional.
I used to try and get a minimum of 10 done per day…and eventually, that caused me to have the crashes that I had.
So, to counter that again, I limit myself to 5 tasks, and a minimum of 2 tasks to get done daily (every day). This method definitely helped me to stay on track.
Now, it may not work for you. But I hope this will give you the idea to form a habit that works best for you.
So, how can you form a productive habit?
There are actually three phases to habit formation, let’s talk about it;
The Three Phases of Habit Formation
The habits of highly successful people allow them to perform behaviors consistently that breed success. Most people believe that they can form a habit in 21 days if they consistently perform the desired behavior consistently for approximately three weeks.
However, this is simply a realistic view of how habits are formed.
The formation of habits actually takes place through three distinct phases, the honeymoon phase, the fight thru phase, and the second nature phase.
The Honeymoon Phase
The honeymoon phase of habit formation is often characterized by the feeling that it’s easy.
As most married people will tell you, at some point, even the greatest honeymoon must come to an end. The honeymoon phase of habit formation is usually a result of being inspired by something.
For example, you might attend a highly motivational personal development conference, and for the first several days afterward you are determined to make positive changes in your life.
The Fight Thru Phase
Once the honeymoon phases end, your inspiration will fade, and reality will set in. This is the phase where you might find yourself struggling with completing the positive habit and your old habits are just waiting around the corner for their chance to move back in.
The key to successfully getting through this phase is to win two or three fight thru.
To win a fight thru you should use the following techniques. * Recognize that you are in the fight thru phase. *
Ask questions and bring your emotions into the equation. *
Imagine how your life will be in five years if you don’t make the necessary changes.
The Second Nature Phase
When you enter the phase of second nature, you start to feel as though you are getting into the groove of things. Once you find yourself in this phase, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the following common interruptions. * Discouragement * Disruptions * Seduction* of success.
If you end up experiencing one of these interruptions it has the possibility of sending you back to phase two.
By winning two or three of the fight thrus, you will find yourself back in the second nature phase where you can continue to move forward in forming more positive habits.
Most people think that forming positive habits is a simple as completing a new task consistently for 21 days.
Unfortunately, it takes a bit more time than that. Good habits require commitment and hard work.
Keep these three phases in mind the next time you want to form a good habit to help you reach a higher level of success.
But for real, I hope it helps!
If you’re still chasing, keep on chasing.
