It turns out that it’s pretty easy to destroy good work.
All you have to do is…well, nothing really. You just leave it. Stop. Let nature take its course.
About 6 months I wrote a blog post. I was taking my running more seriously, working towards a goal I wanted to acheive…running a half marathon.
I had embarked on a program, building up the distance I was capable of running, adding half a mile each week. I would get out and run 2 or 3 times at each distance and then add another half mile. It was great, and I was building good momentum. I got from zero to four and a half miles.
But then distractions happened. ‘Life took over’ and I need to be honest with you…
I drifted away. I stopped. I found excuses to passively destroy the fruits of my effort.
Well it’s now about 4 months since I last ran as a part of that program…I just got back from the gym and I could only manage one mile. It was a push. That single mile hurt like hell. All that good, sweaty, hard work had been torn down by inaction.
How do you want to be remembered?
We’ve been looking at this idea of living with ‘intent’ and exploring the question, ‘how do you want to be remembered?’ in the Members Haven over the past couple of weeks.
It is a part of the initial setup for my e-course A Little Bit Every Day as I encourage people to think about their priorities, what drives them deep down, and what gets them up in the morning. The way we answer these questions are all linked in with the concept I talked about in that original blog post…is what you are doing worth it when you look at your big picture?
In this episode I explore how we can find contentment in the struggles of life by asking one question of everything we do…
Is it worth it?
1. Introverts Unite
Michaela Chung, the author of IntrovertSpring.com is over in the UK next week and I’m working with her to present the very first UK Introvert’s Unite Conference on Saturday 27th September at the Shakespeare Hotel in Bedford. I’ll be speaking on ‘The Gentle Rebel’s Guide to Quiet Influence’.
Michaela will be speaking on tapping into the power of introversion, and there will be a mastermind session to discuss solutions to the biggest problems we face as introverts and how we can spread the word about what introversion is and the benefits for all of society when we embrace and enjoy its gifts.
It promises to be a fantastic event, hopefully the first of many – come and be a part of making it happen. Reserve your spot now.
2. A Little Bit Every Day
And secondly, my e-course, A Little Bit Every Day will be going up in price at the end of this week from its introductory offer. Go and grab it before the 21st September.
