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
Level Down, So you can level up
I know I wrote this post a few weeks back (Where in your world do you need to level up)
And this post is more the opposite, Where do you need to level down.
Because we all want to accomplish so much, So we take on too much and accomplish nothing.
We try to help others, Try and do five things at once and we become overwhelmed and drained, then do nothing.
Somewhere in your world, you need to Cut back on, So you can level up elsewhere, where it will make a difference to your life, SO you can make a difference in other lives as well.
You can’t do everything and in trying you’ll do nothing.
For those familiar with dating apps, You’ll know it’s all about getting a match now,
Meaning you both swipe right on each other, which allows you to message one and another.
But just because you have a match, does mean you have a date, a partner or even an F-buddy if that’s what you’re after,
There is still a lot of work to be done.
The same is applied in business or even in health
Just because you have a new lead does not mean you have a new customer,
Just because you have a gym membership does not mean you are fit and healthy…
We need to work, and work hard to convert our matches into something,
And a lot of the time they amount to nothing (In my experience anyway :/)
External motivation is weak.
Because it relies on something or someone else.
I remember the late nights watching rocky 4 for like the 100th time,
I used to get so motivated and want to run for miles…
But in the late morning or afternoon whenever I woke
That motivation was gone.
And the exercise never got done.
Then I would watch rocky again
And the same feeling and the process continued.
This is what happens when we rely on outside sources for our motivation.
Its doesn’t come from within so it’s not strong to sustain our habits.
I would argue that motivation is weak itself…
Even if it comes from within…
What should we rely on then?
Don’t feel like doing something, you do it anyway
Discipline feels like your worst enemy
It makes you do things you hate
But it has your best interests at heart
If your disciplined
You wont need motivation, but your results in life will compound
And you will realise that discipline is your best friend
