Consequences and Rewarding ourselves in a routine.
Hi, welcome to the 10th conversation about building a routine. If you haven’t seen the other nine, check it out on my YouTube channel. While you’re there, subscribe.
There’s two obvious things we can look at here. Sometimes they’re called “carrot and stick”. The words I would use are consequences and rewards.
Again, maybe not the best way to reward yourself, it’s a matter of finding a really good balance.
So consequences are going to typically be there anyway. If someone’s holding you to account though, or you’re holding someone else to account, it can really pay to have some agreed consequences that the third party will ensure take place to help reinforce the importance of the routine.
And obviously, if we can have rewards that really excite us, inspire us, then you know, like for me, that’s going to be a really, really cool holiday with people that I love.
You know, that’s going to be the sort of reward I’m going to work for. Another great consequence that, I’d love you to look at a guy that I’ve worked with before, I’d call him a mate, good guy, Glenn Twiddle.
He has this great consequence, which involves you either do what you say you’re going to do in your business, or you end up writing this kind of love letter to your competition, telling them how much you adore them.
