Self-disruption

Heading to the gym at 6:15AM instead of 7:15AM. Need to make it to a WordPress meeting by 8:30AM.

Self-disruption.

What does this mean?

It means exactly what it says.

You disrupt yourself.

New Years resolutions attempt to jump-start the personal change we desire yet can’t seem to reach.

The almost predictable failure has a root cause no one is addressing. New Years resolutions overwhelmingly fail because we forget to disrupt our self-motivation.

We have to “world-class” convince ourselves that there is no turning back from our old thinking and doing.

We are talking Olympic Gold Medal motivational convincing.

The long way is the short cut.

What's Our Obligation?

If you knew you couldn’t fail…

After a long bike ride to the gym (and an hour there) and back, i sat on a float in our pool…because i could.

 

If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you do for your health?

This doesn’t happen very often or does it?

(photo: Even after fumbling to take the photo, the first mile still clocked in under eight minutes. The warmup mile is never this fast.)

This doesn’t happen very often or does it?

We promised we were going to exercise today. But then the day starts slipping away and it looks impossible. We literally resign ourselves to defeat. Again.

An opportunity, or two, may appear (teasing us) but it’s quickly stolen by something pressing.

And then. And then something happens. We dig in and refuse to be defeated.

And the workout, run, or whatever, is better than we’ve had in months.

A little sore this morning. Cool.

Keep moving forward.

Need Help Not Giving Up?

We. Can. Not. Fail.

Mid Life Celebration book in Calgary on Amazon page
Balance, of which physical health is only 1/5 of the equation

 

As we travel through life, a few events will be added on top of our already challenging schedule.

We’re talking about really big, unanticipated things.

The straw that breaks the camel’s back so to speak.

What is difficult to see, and critical to remember, is they are temporary.

But we forget that initially and are extraordinarily tempted to quit:

  • being active
  • eating well
  • resting adequately

We. Can. Not. Fail.

And there’s only one person leading that charge.
