I write so we're we're gonna talk to Peter Bregman out CEO advisor and foxbusiness.com.
Contributor had a note Peter.
-- when you say the lack of motivation is not your problem in getting New Year's resolutions and your goals achieved its other things but motivations not the problem.
-- people come to mean they say you know I'm I wish I was more motivated I was a kid have kept up in the Moran saying -- have that drive.
And and motivation -- -- your mind hand right it's it's sort of you know can I get myself riled up can -- you start that fire in my belly it.
Right getting stuff done and is in the practices thanks very much about what you're doing it actually doesn't require a lot of money in fact.
I think if you have if you think you have a problem with motivation my suggestion would be shut your mind off for awhile and just do the thing that you wanted to do.
I mean I can give you perfect example I used to sleep and my gym clothes ready smile line and not go to the gym in the morning but really want -- Flattening so stated to go that's -- the will wasn't there that's an issue.
I would imagine that if I were sleeping in my -- I would have no choice but taxing marijuana and -- -- -- it's sort of it's a lot to diagnose this.
-- telling out I have it.
So so actually notes and -- -- to the question would be.
Like that's one of the things that would -- one of -- I would suggest is create an environment that makes it.
More likely you're gonna do the things that you wanna do so you know sleeping in your gym closes even you know more powerful than putting -- -- back.
God really gonna -- this setting up so that would be great.
It's a great.
You're you're great case study I I.
With that -- the -- what else can you do that took another thing you can do is to be accountable to someone else a lot of -- -- -- so if you're gonna meet.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Then you're you're -- here -- -- the alarm goes off.
I think I've got whoever it is is waiting for a bit at a party -- -- 150 dollars yeah hit add that maybe you're buying is expensive shakes or diet -- or something yeah.
So is that you yeah I don't know sort of saying you know there's an opportunity cost of and you realize you're not gonna go to the -- -- gonna end up getting a bigger breakfast and he's -- That's up together you -- you know and so it.
It's driving what you want to do is shut your mind because what happens you know what within the situation you're describing -- you wake up in the morning.
And what happened to wake up in the morning at 615.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Is it really worth it to -- to.
Higher than maybe leaving creator rational argument -- take.
You know I read somewhere that sleep is just as important as exercise right and I'm not getting an answer and and the game is shut your mind off.
I know you made the decision last night don't make a new decision in the morning and my case I say I don't work out so long morning can then easily tired of it right so you have this kind of rationales.
But that wasn't the rationale in the morning when you set -- -- and I think.
So do your thinking.
I I was saying.
Which is never quit a diet while you're reading the -- -- Never quite -- on and I and that's a good question diet.
You know after after eating healthy meal -- your and your feeling good about yourself -- that you can quit the -- that.
But don't quit the died at the moment of temptation.
Right moment of temptation -- -- -- time because there's something else kicking in your brain that's really really really -- my diet.
Boy that chocolate peanut butter cake looks good -- -- by just anyone but we shared ride and the other person to be polite -- are humbled by -- and the European don't think so.
You don't wanna quit about what you never wanna quit at 6 in the morning -- -- you wanna be accountable to someone else -- really useful to be accountable someone else.
-- another thing is that and you did this with the -- is decide when and -- -- you're gonna do things.
There's a huge amount of evidence that points to the fact that if you decide when and where -- gonna designing and letting its schedule and put it into -- you know from 645 to 745 you're at the -- Right and you know that because it's -- -- -- -- much more likely due -- fits -- your account right.
And breaks network think of things to do during a break get -- overweight at a time constraint you have to work below the faster eleven -- that's exactly right and that's exactly right.
-- sometimes and have a hold data right.
You don't really hard to right.
But when I have a median eleven and I know -- -- get some writing and before eleven I'm incredibly productive -- and it's standing right on fire that's exactly right do you -- schedules stuff so that you feel little rushed and then write a little -- and then you actually get it -- pressure and in fact if you feel that pressure you know you only have half an -- work out.
You -- -- -- their fifteen minutes debating with yourself whether it's worth it you're just gonna say gonna go to -- -- Yes I -- it and then.
You say here it's -- The plan should be concrete that simple to quantify it simple to quantify and now I'm not so into quantifying things in general we had a conversation about -- not setting quantifiable goals because I think he gets in the way.
But with something like this with something where.
You know for me -- stopped eating sugar about six months ago and it's actually -- pretty well I think what do you ever since you know I have to admit.
We're not on camera are we after -- This sometimes.
I you know have had a little taste of something here -- little taste of something there but it hasn't talked governor Mike him.
But it it hasn't it hasn't completely.
-- -- off track.
And and one of the reasons is it's very very simple.
The idea is I'm not any sugar and by the way I'm not crazy about not thinking you know -- -- watermelon I don't worry about that stuff.
A -- any cookies candy cake ice cream.
That's a commitment I -- with up but it's so easy.
It's so black and white to decide if it so if you -- -- work out and you have a specific exercise plan for example he just decide I'm gonna no matter what.
I'm gonna exercise.
Twenty minutes a day.
And I can set -- -- and by twenty minutes -- over and but -- that kind of rigidity.
And you'll you end up doing it because it's very very clear whether you've done it or not.
If you say I -- eat healthy when it's great.
It's great as as a as an idea and that's generally the direction you wanna go and right but if it's hard to quantify if you really -- at the end of the day.
Got it hear -- -- and thank you so much my great pleasure we'll put your credit vote on the screen right now.
And we -- I should say.
