I listen to audiobooks every day while on a minimum 30 minute walk but I know the physical book has something special to it as well.
20 minutes of reading is something I could do and because my habits are currently solid and have been engrained, this is a simple one to add to my morning disciplines.
“We often spend all of our time and energy questioning our long term intentions, and asking ourselves where we want to end up. In doing so, we often neglect to simply do.”
~Reminds me of Steven Pressfield’s books — Do the Work and War of Art
Thank you Ryan — just got the book on Audible and listened to January today on my walk. Going to be re-listening to it as there were numerous gems.
Thank you for picking these 7 passages out as they were another great read.
Thank you — great read!
“But practice — practice is humble, it admits of imperfections, in fact it assumes and welcomes imperfections. As an imperfect human being, I can most definitely get behind that. We should all be practicing. We should all have a practice, because we should all be trying to do better.”
I’ve been telling my athletes I train “How you do one thing is how you do everything” — it’s going to take a while to stick but from the warm-up to the “fun stuff” — I work on engraining this.
I will be sharing this article — love the Jim Rohn part and love the connection you made here…
Like Marianne Williamson wrote,
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God…
Mini-habits are the key to fitness. The ones that give me the most bang for my buck in all aspects are the mini-workout in the morning (3 minutes of different push ups, 5 minutes of squats, 5 minute mobility), breathing/meditating 5 minutes or more daily, and warm baths.
Building momentum is huge — especially first thing in the morning. Great post.
Re-programming yourself through mini-habits first thing in the morning is a habit I’ve undertaken with great success. Continuing throughout the day (with your tips/strategies) is important to continue the momentum.
Just finished listening to the book yesterday — definitely gems I’ll have to go back and listen to — thank you!
