Perseverance is a good thing. It is a value that drives us towards success and achievement helping us to overcome challenges along the way. But it has the potential to trap us in mental prisons.
We’ve all done it. You set the alarm for 6:00 AM with grand aspirations to get up and workout like a Navy Seal before eating a healthy breakfast and cracking on with your day.
Then the alarm goes off, it’s dark and cold outside, you’re tired – and those good intentions simply evaporate.
The old expression that still carries a lot of weight in the world of business. ‘What gets measured gets done’. If you can measure something, you can work on it and you can improve it.
