I’ve gotten quite a few comments from my recent article, If not now, when?. It seems the overriding theme in all of the comments I received was that you know the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ but need help in the ‘how’.
- How to get out of bed instead of hitting snooze.
- How to stay motivated.
- How to fit exercise with a busy schedule.
I think the answer to the “how” can be summed up best by my favorite Nike slogan, “Just Do It”. Once you make up your mind to “Just Do It” you eliminate the waffling, the wavering, the deal making and change begins.
Of course there will be days that don’t fall in line and even with the best laid plans you can’t get to the gym or you get lost in a box of Thin Mints. It happens. The trick is to not let that interfere with your progress. It’s just a slip, an anomaly.
Remember, even with 2 steps forward and 1 step back you are still moving in the right direction.
Now go run!
