Print out your calendar. Hang the calendar some place where you will see it every day. You could put it on the fridge, tape it to your bedroom mirror, hang it in your family room, etc... Wherever you put it make sure you have a pen or pencil within reach. This way you can mark down each day that you have done along with how you felt during each workout.

Before you go any further, do this right now. Track your progress by taking pictures of yourself (front view, back view and side view, as illustrated below) before starting the program and immediately after the program. Write down the date you took the photos. If no one’s around to take pictures for you, a mirror selfie will do!
4 HABITS TO EVERLASTING SUCCESS
After you completed the previous steps, make sure you devote some time to completing this document to help you succeed for the rest of your life!
You’ll have a tendency to forget what we outline in the “4 Habits to Everlasting Success”. That’s why we have created note card sized printout called the "pilot checklist" for you to hang someplace where you’ll see it multiple times a day, such as your bedroom mirror, bathroom mirror, hallway entrance, or wherever you think best. It will serve as a constant reminder for you to stay focused and be consistent with your positive habits.
Why is it called “Pilot Checklist”?
When I was younger, my dad brought my brother and I behind the wheel of a helicopter. I was probably about 7 years old and it was my first time learning about the intricacies of flying. I thought there were 3 buttons and a joystick that operated the entire helicopter, much like the video games I used to play. But actually seeing it up close was extraordinary.
The pilot showed us what each button in the cockpit dashboard did, and explained all the various gears that he had to check before taking off. He explained how it takes at least a half hour for him to make sure all the switches and gears are set properly before he could proceed. Then there are another set of procedures after that happens, like checking with air traffic to get permission for take-off.
Failing to properly go through the check list could cost them their lives, so they always have it available with them to remind themselves.
Drive, don’t drift. Even the most experienced pilots who can recite the checklist in their sleep refer back to it. They don’t entrust their memory to something as important as their survival. We should treat our goals and habits the same way. We cannot entrust our memories to executing good habits that dictates the course of our life. If we are not diligent with this, we’ll just drift off and let chance decide our fate.
Take responsibility. The pilot is ultimately responsible for everything that happens on the flight. That is the same way with our lives. Even though we may be up against unfair circumstances, or have been burned by people in the past, we cannot blame anyone for where we are in life. We must be the captain of our own future and take responsibility for our lives. If you go off course, make the necessary corrections and keep moving forward.
