Creating Systems To Achieve Goals

Goal setting is great! But the more I research, look at my clients results, and self-reflect the more I am leaning towards a more systematic approach rather than focussing primarily on goals. I didn't mention this in the video, but what really opened my eyes to the method of having systems in place was during my never ending Jiu Jitsu journey. I began studying systems, recording my rolls, seeing what I was doing right, and what I was doing wrong. Then making alterations to my systems to refine it and make it more effective. This did wonders for my jiu jitsu game and has catapulted my learning and retention. But in this video I'll be covering how we can use systems to help propel you towards reaching your goals, and…

Why You MUST Track Your Training

If I told you to go do something reasonably complex, that required you to do track specific numbers, and progress these numbers each and every time you did this complex task, would you write these numbers down, or try and memorize them? Because I think maybe 5-10% of the people I see in the gym are actually tracking their exercises and their weights, sets and reps on a regular basis. Maybe 90-95% of people just have amazing memories and can remember everything single set and rep they do for months on end... Yea, I don't think so either. When you train, and have a goal in mind. You need to make sure your training is logged. This is an absolute requirement if you're trying to get stronger. You need to…
