DIY considerations

Do it yourself is exciting, but it can be challenging. DIY takes some serious skills. To succeed you need to define a clear goal, decide what and how much to change, write down a plan that works, and remember to fit everything in a day.

The above can be daunting, that’s why less than 3% of Americans dare to even have their goals written down.[i] But without writing down the goals the chances for success slide down by 50%.[ii] No wonder that as many as 92% of people drop their goals within fifteen days.[iii]

Do you know what the most common reasons for dropping out are?[iv]

  1. I don’t have time” is less of a valid reason, and more of an indicator of poor time management. Everyone’s day has 24 hours. If others succeeded, you can too.
  2. I don’t know how” may be a serious dilemma if you don’t have sufficient information to take on the project. If you don’t think you have what it takes, DIY may not be for you.
  3. I am afraid to fail” yet, the biggest failure is not to try at all
  4. I am not sure if the plan is working” doubts the progress. It’s true, lack of experience can stall the progress. Look for mentors before giving up too early.
  5. I am losing motivation” may stem form lack of support from the family and friends as well as unfortunate presence of naysayers. Always surround your self with people who support your goal.

Six DIY Steps that will ensure your success 

If you insist on DIY and want to avoid DIY traps and surprises, study the six points below. These can minimize nasty surprises and increase your chances for success.

1 – Clarify what you want and why

First, what would you like to accomplish while getting healthier: lose weight, reverse T2 diabetes, improve cholesterol numbers, lower blood pressure, or get a flattest of the flat stomachs? The more annoying the problem, the bigger the chances for you being serious about it, so choose your most bothersome spot.

Second, clarify why do you want to do that? To fit into your old pants, to show off at a reunion, to impress your doctor, to get rid of medical bills, to climb Mount Everest, or to have fun with your kids? The more emotional the cause the stronger the chances for you to follow through, so aim at something that is the dearest to your heart, something that would make a huge difference to your life.

 

2 – Don’t just wish, set a realistic goal

Wanting to lose weight is a wish. Wish is something you want, but not necessarily work towards, like I wish for winning a lottery or I wish for aliens being real.

Wish isn’t the same as a goal. Goal is specific, measurable, and timed. For example, you want to lose 60 lb. Ok, but by when? By tomorrow? In 3 months? In 5 years? Anything is possible. For example, you may be scheduled for a 60-pound weight loss surgery this week, go on a strict diet and lose 20 pounds a month, or just cut add a carrot a day and lose 1 pound every 30 days.  

People who don’t turn their dreams into reality simply fail to convert their wishes to realistic workable goals. Don’t be that! Make your dreams worthwhile and your goals rock!

 

3 – Work out a plan you can stick to

You heard the word “commitment” before. But committing is the easy part. The more difficult part is to work out a schedule you can adhere to. There’s no point to say you are going to exercise three times a week if you have three jobs, or say you are going to be on a strict diet if your calendar is filled with weddings and parties.

Work out a schedule you can adhere to. It’s better to stick to a small change that is meaningful, rather than have grandiose plans, only to chuck them to the curb three days later. If you made plans before, but you “could not commit”, instead of beating yourself up, make up a plan that fits better in your life circumstances.

If it turns out your plan calls for better nutrition and focuses on avoidance of junk food, you are in luck. 69 Pleasures is a zero-junk cookbook that does not require kitchen upgrades, exotic ingredients, or a chef’s credentials. 69 Pleasures recipes are extremely simple, use common ingredients, yet end up tasting as if made by a world-famous cook. Give it a try

 

4 – Focus on the plan

Life is full of distractions. Don’t expect those to go away after you make a “new-you” plan. Kids will continue crying, boss will continue yelling, dishes won’t clean themselves, neither coffee shops will stop selling tempting sweets.

Focus. Regardless of your life circumstances, make your goal a priority. Put a reminder wallpaper on your phone, so you can look at it 20 times a day. Download a habit-forming app or stick a note on the fridge. Repeat an affirmation in your head every hour, or simply tell a friend to keep you on track.

Armed with the reminders, you will be less likely to get distracted by the daily noise and your chances of success will go up exponentially. If your goal is workable, your plan is sound, there is no reason for distractions to ruin it.

 

5 – Check your progress

Your goal may be far away and you should check periodically if you are on track. For example, you may want to lose 60 lb in three months, but you haven’t lost anything in three weeks. Should you not reassess your plan to see why things aren’t working?

Check your progress in timed intervals. Regular checks are the key to eliminating nasty disappointments at the end. If something is not working, don’t just give up. Instead, look for reasons. Is your goal overly optimistic, does the plan need adjustment, or maybe you need to focus more? Whatever the reason, find it, and fix it. Running away is the last thing you want to do. Succeeding at goals is not a rocket science. It is a skill, just like walking, or skating. Keep working on it and before you know it success is your second nature.

 

6 – Reassess at the end

If you set your goal for 60 days, great! 60 days is a perfect time to recheck your ABC as well. If your program has been well designed, you should see improvement in many aspects of your health. Go to the Uthing Score page and redo all your tests. Compare them to the scores you got before you started your health journey.

Are you there yet? Are you your ideal self, or you have to go further? If yes, set another goal, make another plan, focus, and go for another round. Keep on going till your dream becomes a reality.
