Progressive Overload… Your Mind
Progressive overload in the gym, where one gradually increases the weight they lift, is a proven method for building strength and achieving progress. Similarly, progressive overload of the mind through constant learning is crucial for personal and professional growth.
The beauty of modern technology is that learning can now occur in many forms outside of traditional schooling. With the abundance of resources available, such as books, podcasts, audiobooks, and mentors, the possibilities for personal development are endless. Take advantage of this and never stop learning. In fact, you can even learn to create your own website, just like the author of this message did, through utilizing resources such as YouTube University.
A routine is crucial to success and this is evident in the morning routines of highly successful individuals. According to a study by Corley, nearly 50% of millionaires start their day at least 3 hours before work. This head start gives them dedicated time for personal growth and allows them to complete tasks before the workday, ensuring that each day is productive. As Corley says, “starting the day by tackling your top three priorities at 5 am can help you regain control of your life.” A routine, especially a morning routine, is a powerful tool for success and personal growth.
I will be honest I try to wake up at 5:30 am. Any earlier and I find I’m just moving slower. I say this because you also have to do what works for you. I definitely push myself to wake up at 5:30 am but you also have to balance out what works for you!
Jordan Peterson, a well-known psychologist, and author emphasizes the importance of physical fitness in reducing mental decline as we age.
Exercise, especially cardio, is crucial for both the body and the brain. The study by Corley supports this, as it shows that 76% of successful individuals exercise for at least 30 minutes per day, focusing mostly on cardio. Cardio has been shown to have a positive impact on the brain, promoting the growth of neurons. By dedicating time to improving themselves, highly successful people like those studied by Corley, understand the importance of physical fitness in maintaining mental sharpness and overall well-being.
