From my studies of inspirational and productive people, I've come to realise that consistency is key to success and a major flaw in my character. There are a number of things I wish to do daily/weekly/regularly that I'm unable to stick at. Examples:
Walk dog. Study scriptures. Write journal. Exercise. Stretches. Read non-fiction. Rest / relaxation. Mediation.
I've tried the don't break the chain method with some success, but that soon fell apart too. The only major success I've had at being consistent is a 5x50 challenge where I ran 5k a day for 50 days. I was sponsored to do this which meant I felt an obligation to do this as people had generously paid a lot of money and that kept me diligent in this task.
What techniques can I employ, either practically or psychologically, to increase my diligence in regular activites that I know are beneficial to me?
