10,000 PUSH-UPS

Daily Nuggets | | Tom Suddes

A few weeks ago we published “10 Action Steps to Help you Engage in 2016.” Over the next 10 weeks, we are going to use each action step as a week long theme to help you get it done!


Let’s use this ‘Push-Up’ analogy to help reinforce ACTION.

If you commit to do 10,000 push-ups a year, the SIMPLEST and most SUCCESSFUL way to achieve that goal is to do 30 PUSH-UPS A DAY. (1 set, 3 sets of 10 or 2 push-ups an hour the 15 hours you’re awake.)

To reinforce this point even more, let’s say you wanted to do 1,000 x (your age) push-ups a year – The SIMPLE EXECUTION is 3 sets of (your age) a day…every day. (For example, if you’re 49, you would do 49 push up 3 times a day. This actually gets you more that 49,000 but you get my point.)

In this model, you can’t skip 3 days. You can’t wait until June to begin. You won’t hit your goal.

Just like with push ups, you can’t wait until November to make 100 visits (because you’ve only made 3 visits a month up until then.)
