Want to make faster progress towards your goals of better performance, body comp, and more muscle?
Want to know one of the main keys?
Of course, shut up and tell me already.
Here you go:
“Fail forward as fast as possible.”
Not as in taking each and very rep to beyond failure to impress Mike Mentzer’s ghost and make Arthur Jones proud, but failure as in “hmmm, maybe this was not the best XX (insert program, supplement, macro ratio, mindset, warm up, etc).”
There is a catch to this mad method though…
…keeping the cost of each failure low enough so that you learn.
While you are “failing,” feedback is critical.
Think of the vibrating tracks alongside the roads that make your car buzz if you run over them. They are providing feedback – at a low cost- that you are going off track.
Same idea here.
Swap “failure” in your brain for “feedback.”
Learn from failure, then go again.
You will make light years of progress compared to the alternative – stuck in info collection stage without action.
Fail forward as fast as possible.
