“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” ~ Johnny Cash

Forgetting to Remember is a VERY Big Deal…

All habits, our good ones and our bad ones, are based on 3 basic conditions:

1) A TRIGGER — something that gets your attention and reminds you take some kind of action…

2) A BEHAVIOR — a specific action you will automatically take…

3) A REWARD — what you get when you recognize the Trigger and engage in the Behavior to get the Reward you desire.

Habits are based on CRAVINGS, either positive or negative. Crave nicotine and you smoke. Crave chocolate and you eat cake. Crave success and you grow rich — when you take the right sequence of actions.

It takes between 66 and 100 days to build a habit — to create an automatic, intuitive, instinctive response to a triggering event. Which is why we created the 100 Day Excellence Habit Challenge… so you NEVER forget to remember to always act in your best interest.

Because out-of-sight is out-of-mind, “forgetting to remember” is a huge drain on your performance. The Excellence Habit Challenge is designed to help you effectively learn, remember and master the skills necessary to produce outstanding results.

The Forgetting Curve shows it perfectly. Without daily repetition of success-critical ideas, you simply short change yourself in the process. The brutal fact is, we naturally forget some 66% of what we learn in LESS THAN A DAY… and 90% of what we just learned is gone in a few weeks. (The red line.)

Put another way, you only retain a paltry 10% of what you learned. So, why go to the effort of learning anything if you are going to immediately forget it?!

The cure is actually quite simple: Spaced Repetition of success-critical ideas and you remember virtually EVERYTHING you learn, and retain it indefinitely. You grow smarter because you forget less and take smarter actions more frequently! (The blue line.)

The difference is incredible. Engage to the peak of your ability and you succeed without limitations. Don’t and you won’t.

Join us on this 100 day adventure to a wonderful new you! Sign up, engage with the stories and you will see immediate results. If not, cancel anytime for a complete refund.
