Time Out For Excuses
Updated: Apr 13
Rethink The Way You Think About Accomplishing A Goal
The 30-minute solution came about in 2012. I had just recently started a new job that involved extremely difficult work. After I came home I usually only had enough energy to shower and then get some much-needed rest. Before this job, I used to work out every a.m. for an hour. Though I rose from rest revitalized, I didn't want to arrive at work with an hour less energy to give. But not working out wasn't an option. So, I said to myself, let's see what we can get done in half the time. To my surprise, I was able to complete a full bodywork workout. Granted, it wasn't the same feeling as the hour version but I felt it, nonetheless.
After the first day, the 30-minute solution became a ritual and not just for working out, but for everything I didn't have a lot of time to invest in as well.
Remember, the key is to spend every second doing nothing other than what we set out to do.
It's not a sprint it's a marathon. But even in a marathon, we have to move if we expect to cross the finish line.
Thank you for taking the time to read my words. May we never lose our desire to outdo what we've already done.
