Quitting can be an attractive option because you don't feel like you're making progress, but it's probably just because you're focusing in perceptual progress instead of actual progress.
Weight lifting is a good example.
Then you go again.
Pretty soon, your previous personal best is a quick warmup "for the real stuff."
You still feel like it's work, but you're actually getting stronger.
The reality is "I'M GETTING SO STRONG AND THIS IS AWESOME. LOOK AT WHAT I CAN DO!"
So what's the antidote to perception getting you down?
Don't trust yourself. Do this 👇
You have to keep records.
You can't trust your "in the moment" self to tell you where you were last week. You don't remember! You just know it was tough THEN, and it's tough NOW so nothing's changing.
You can prove it with records.
Just write it down.
