I have a coaching client, Claire, who this week shared with me a most wonderful idea.
She’s planting… seeds, bulbs, cuttings, seedlings, tubers, etc.
A minimum of one item, every day, for 90 days.
She knows that even before Day 90, she will see the fruits of her labour.
Plus, the garden gifts will keep on giving – long after the initial 90 days has passed.
And she knows about the joy of picking flowers for your home and food for your plate…
From your own garden.
Growing your own produce is the classic delayed gratification. How can a potato taste so good?
What else is better with delayed gratification?
Saving money. Getting fit. Finding a following. Writing a book. Building stamina. Sitting in a wheelie bin full of freezing water channelling your inner Wim Hof.
Most goals mean putting in hard work first of all in order to enjoy the future benefits.
Today, members of TEAM17 are starting a 17-day delayed gratification challenge. I know they’ll smash it because they’re doing it with accountability and support.
That’s the beauty of TEAM17 – you’re never on your own.
Are you up for a Delayed Gratification Challenge?
