There are places in life where immediate feedback makes all the difference. Driving a car, having a conversation or trying to calibrate a nuclear fusion. Crashes, misunderstandings and very unpleasant nuclear things happen when there’s a delay in the feedback.

The opposite is true when you’re trying to reclaim your energy and strength without burning out in the process. Expecting immediate feedback on your efforts is bound to lead to disappointment. You’re putting in a lot of work and noticing very little change.

This is why short-term transformations are so appealing to a lot of people. They promise immediate feedback on your efforts.

But, if part of your goal is to keep your results, it helps to shift your feedback timeline from days to months.
