Short-Term Pain

Workout today or not?

Start that project or delay?

Call that friend or put it off?

We make tough decisions all day long.

Is your decision-making in line with the person you want to become?

When we’re having trouble making decisions this becomes a wonderful question to start with.

They’re not always easy decisions because sometimes they come with short-term discomfort. But, It can prepare us to more closely resemble the person we envision for the future.

→ Short-term pain prepares us for long-term gain.

It’s not easy, but it might be necessary.

Sitting Idle

What did we fail at today?

Failing means that we tried something uncomfortable or difficult and pushed ourselves a tad into a world of discomfort.

Acknowledging we failed shows us that we can accept our failures and it might give us the courage to try and fail again.

If we’re stuck, maybe the answer isn’t sitting idle and moping but getting out there and trying some new shit.

It’s just an idea we might want to ponder today.

Snooze Alarm

I’m starting to question if the fear of starting is partly that we don’t want the responsibility of what could happen if we actually succeed.

Comfort is the warm blanket over us as we hit the snooze alarm. Getting up and doing something actually creates a whole new set of unknowns.

Best to stay tucked in for a bit longer, I guess, so we don’t have to deal with the discomfort of waking up.
