Improvement is not something that magically happens overnight. It is a result of tiny steps taken every day.
But starting that tiny step for improvement is what takes you towards your goal.
If you wish to improve yourself and become a better version of yourself, there is no other better time than now to start.
But if you don’t know, how to start, this guide is for you.
This guide briefs about the benchmarking system efficiently improves you on a daily basis.
Setting benchmark goals
In the benchmark concept, you have to identify the lowest threshold you can achieve and make it your benchmark.
For instance, if you aim to do 50 push-ups a week to maintain a healthy body it is your benchmark.
If you are not able to achieve the 50 push-up benchmarks in the week, focus on achieving them in the following week.
To be able to complete the 50 pushups, you must focus on improving your muscle strength and stamina.
Once you achieve the benchmark, increase it slightly like 55 pushups a week or 60 pushups a week.
The consistent challenge is what helps you improve on a large scale. It is impossible to start with 100 pushups a week and completes it without any effort.
Consistency is what helps you improve on a daily basis. Start today by setting your set point and working towards it.
One thing you have to keep in mind, no matter if it rains or snows, you must achieve your benchmark within the period.
Benchmarking is a powerful technique because it maintains performance over a long period.
