Last week I completed Precision Nutrition’s Level 1 Certification program.
I worked through 3 textbooks and 20 chapters of the world’s best nutrition information.
It took me more than one year to complete.
I was not in a rush; I wanted to really absorb and practice the material by coaching it.
I took diligent notes in pencil, because for me, handwriting greatly reinforces retainment.
I budgeted an average of 15 minutes per day for study time.
Many days I skipped studying altogether for various life reasons, work or personal.
But, whenever possible, even if all I could do was read one page, that’s what I did.
On those days, even though I could have easily chosen something else to do, choosing to read the one page always ended up feeling like a big win.
I see examples like this over & over again in my life and in the lives of my clients.
Small, daily wins, repeated as often as possible over time, incrementally add up to transformative change.
This – incremental change – is one of the foundational principles in my online nutrition coaching group.
