Getting fit and saving money have a lot in common.
Saving money from just one paycheck per year will not prepare you for retirement. It takes consistently saving small amounts over a long period of time to reach your goals. They don’t have to be large sums; they just have to be made consistently whether you feel like it or not. Small deposits made consistently will change your future.
Likewise, doing one really big workout per week will not get you in shape. It takes consistently working out a little each day whether you feel like it or not. Small workouts done regularly will change your future.
Compound interest works for fitness the same way it works with money. The small deposits that we make over a long period of time add up in a huge way.
So workout when you have a cold, when the weather sucks, when you’re traveling, or when you only have 10 minutes. If we only workout (or save money) when it’s convenient then we will never reach our goals.
Consistently grinding out the reps and logging the miles will set you apart. Keep making those deposits and you will change your future.
