on the False Promise of 1% Better Every Day

The Consistency Project
on the False Promise of 1% Better Every Day

The soundbyte summary: “One percent better every day” assumes continuous improvement is necessary, where in most areas of life (including nutrition) there is a level of proficiency or competency that is plenty. The work then isn’t in improving; it’s in maintaining status quo.

Topics include:
• How to set realistic expectations for our goals 
• The distinction between movement and progress 
• What Goodhart’s Law is, and how it applies to our health 
• Why “maintenance” is an under-appreciated aim (and why we don’t need continuous improvement)
• The 10 determinants of healthy aging
