Why GOOD ROUTINES Are Always Better Than Motivation

My clients often ask me how they can stay motivated to work on their goals.

They’ll be excited and engaged at the beginning, but soon they start procrastinating and getting distracted.

Well, I hate to break it to you, but your motivation is going to disappear at some point no matter how much you want whatever it is you’re trying to achieve.

Thankfully, there’s a better strategy to help you stay focused and get what you want without relying on motivation, will power, or waiting to “feel like it.”

All you need is a solid routine.
