The barrier to doing something long enough is our microwave mentality.

We want our results to be ‘quick’. Like how things get heated in under 120 seconds on a microwave. Or how we start to get likes immediately after posting a picture.

When results are not as quick as I want it, I get into a state of self criticism. Press the try harder button. And eventually give up.

How often have you been caught in this trap?
