The Message is: LOCK IN

Lock In defined: A technique used to self enhance when one notices themself not being productive, over snacking, wasting time in invaluable conversation, mindlessly scrolling, and hope swirling down the drain by the minute while you constantly cravings to be your best self. The technique is performed by taking yourself away from the distractions, away from chatter, quieting down yourself physically and mentally, putting the phone away if possible, setting your space up for productivity and being there.

In this place of minimal distraction, even it comes down to a mental space in the middle of the commotion, you sit there. Do whatever you can think of that will take you towards the you you want to be. Start. Do something. If its blog -then blog. If it’s write a book then write your book (the start of it). If it’s looking for some kind of job opportunity that’s in your array of interest then look and if you’re locked in enough, apply. Watch an educational video about your passion or hobby, get inspired ,go through that folder of papers, read that book, reread the notes in your journal.

Just lock in and sit. From there it’ll come. Make Lock In a part of your tool box, store it in your mind for those days where youre just… you’ll know when it’s time to use it.

Eventually, enough days of Locking In will take you where you want to be. A penny + a penny + a penny + a penny + a penny = A nickel. Enough nickels and you’ll have a quarter. Enough quarters and you’ll have a dollar. Point is, it adds up. Every lock in moment adds up.

The message is LOCK IN. When you don’t know what to do and you want to stop wasting your time. Take yourself away and lock in.

The message is LOCK IN.
