One word on the page, is worth a whole story planned in the head
– Michael Baldwin
A single action is better than an idea sitting in your head, a word on a page means you started the work, a single action means you did something more than most do, you took action.
Ideas overtime lose power, we lose interest and let the world distract us.
Any progress even if that is one single word on a piece of paper is better than one thought with zero action, because one word, leads to two,
Let’s look at it this way,
In the dating world, if you send a one word message ‘Hey’ for example, its better than not sending anything and at least you may get a reply…
The moral, just do something, anything as long as its not thinking about it
None of us know why we want to write, or not at the beginning.
But once the determination takes hold we have to do it.
– Michael Baldwin
Not just with writing, but anything in life, we often have urges to do somthing that we never would have thought of doing,
We don’t know why we got the urge, but it doesn’t matter anymore
The determination has taken over we have to follow through our it will eat away at us, plague us until we do
Has some determination taken over you?
Destiny may be calling you, what are you waiting for?
Don’t sail out farther than you can sail back
– Danish Proverb
I think if people followed the Danish advice on this one history would have been very boring
Let’s look at this from a fitness point of view
If you only ran as far as you knew you could run back then your fitness would never improve because you wouldn’t up the distance
Or you would never attempt a personal best in lifting in case you wouldn’t be able to complete the lift
In life you would never take risks in case you failed
I’m sorry Danish people but sometimes you have to risks
People talk with their wallets
If you ask people do they eat healthy they’ll tell you that they eat their fruit and vegetables
If you ask people if they recycle they’ll probably tell you that they do
But just because they say they do, doesn’t mean that they actually do
What they say is just who they think they should be or who they think that you want them to be…
But the principle Is
If you say you do one thing because that’s who you think you should be
The why don’t you just do it
So that you can be that person
And the second part of the principle is
People say they are one thing but in the end the talking is done with their money and how they spend it
If you say that you eat healthy for example but rack up takeaway bills every week…
What to do when your tired…
Well that depends really…
Are you a little tired or exhausted
If your a little tired and find yourself always skipping your routine and breaking your habits
Then you just lack dicipline
After all there is always going to be days when we didn’t sleep as well as we would like or just worked a little to hard
We cannot let a little tiredness stop us from doing what needs to be done
However if we are exhausted then we need to rest because pushing through exhaustion is just a ticket to injury, illness and sometimes even death
But most of the time your probably just a little tired
So get working on that dicipline
