Cats and dogs

Be more like cat, Be more like dog

Be more like cat, cats don’t do anything they don’t want to, it can be cuddling you one minute and as soon as its had enough it will walk off and stare out of a window or something

Cats don’t waist time doing things they don’t want nor do they give a fuck what you think

Dogs enjoy the little things in life, no matter the time, day or weather, give them a ball and they’ll play all day, just enjoying the moment

We should be more like cats and dogs, getting shit done and not worrying about what others think of us and then taking time out to enjoy the moments and having some playtime

‘Live’ she says

Death twitches my ear
‘Live’ she says
– paths of meaning

Chasing a paycheck, constantly checking our stocks, or emails,  worrying about some unimportant things…

We forget to enjoy ourselves, We forget to live.

With each day that passes by death creeps closer, but we push Lee further back until we have achieved somthing or paid of this or done that,

No matter what goes on in life there are always small moments to enjoy

Death twitches closer.
Live.

Comfort is the enemy

Comfort is the enemy
-J Cole

When Cole was talking about how he didn’t become a professional basketball player he said that it was because he wasn’t putting in the work,

He said he was playing ball every day, but he wasn’t working with coaches and practicing drills, he was pretending to do something…

Then when his friends pointed out that he was doing the same thing with his rap career

He was like oh shit and it woke him up that he was just working in his comfort zone

So he would write a song or a verse and make a beat before he went to the studio.
He would do 7 minute drills where for 7 minutes he would write.

Comfort is the enemy, comfort cost him his basketball career and almost cost him his rap one too

Do the work
Every day

But once the determination takes hold

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

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
