[2] Do the opposite of what you normally do.Think of this one as the George Costanza approach.
If you haven’t reached a goal, then what you’re currently doing isn’t working.
Instead of tweaking your approach, change it. Pick one goal you’re struggling to achieve and take a different tack. If you’re hoping to finish a marathon and endless long runs aren’t paying off, try interval training instead. Sometimes small adjustments eventually pay off, but occasionally you just need to blow things up and start over.
