Consistency is harder for overachievers because they go from 100 miles an hour to zero very quickly as they rely on their willpower rather than creating habits.
If we set ambitious goals that we can't reach, we often lose heart and abandon them altogether. However, the "1% better daily" principle advocates for making small daily improvements that can eventually result in substantial progress.
By concentrating on making consistent 1% improvements every day, individuals who are overachievers can establish sustainable habits that will eventually help them get to their long term goals.
Although minor changes may appear insignificant initially, they can result in significant progress and growth over time. By continuously making incremental improvements, those who aim for excellence can develop momentum and accomplish their objectives in a sustainable manner.
James Clear, author of "Atomic Habits," suggests that relying solely on willpower is not a sustainable way to build habits. Instead, he recommends implementing a system of small, consistent actions that gradually become part of one's routine. For overachievers, this may mean setting lower expectations and focusing on the process rather than the outcome. By creating a habit of consistent, small actions, overachievers can avoid burnout and achieve their goals in a sustainable way.
