Secrets of Success

Test Drive Before You Buy (diets, Exercise, Etc.)



Before you are allowed to commit to a system (or even put more than 1/2 an hour thinking about it) do a trial of it. Your trial should be at least 14% of the time you want to commit to, but feel free to raise that % to hit round numbers and raise your chance of success . After a day you can plan for up to a week, a week: up to 7 (6 is better,) a month: up to 7 (6 is better)... and so on... revise as needed during the process, but keep good notes.
