Do It or Else


A friend recently posted on their blog, “Buying is easier than doing. Even when you know that the way is through action rather than acquisition, it’s still sometimes a challenge to get out there and do it.

This week I aim to get out there and do.”

That, in a nutshell, the attitude we endorse fully around here, along with another friend’s mantra/koan, “Do it anyway.”

Some days you feel weak. You feel tired. You feel sore. You simply don’t want to do it, whatever “it” is.

The difference between growth and ossification is performing on those days despite those feelings. Maybe it’s warped to derive motivation from overcoming an initial lack of motivation.

Beating inertia is still a victory worth earning. And it puts you one step further along the path.

Get out there and do, indeed.
