Only If For (a) Night

ما قيمة الأسماء عندما لا تختلف عن أي واحد آخر ؟

I often talk with close friends, those who are open and honest about their bodies and spirituality about “something” that I have found to be very important to me personally. The concept I would like to share with you this morning is: Don’t Try Harder, Try Different.

Many of us are hopelessly stuck doing the same thing over and over again, hoping that the next time we try, if we just try a bit harder, push a little bit more, all will be well in the end. Trying harder at “something” that is already not working (yoga and running are classic examples) is only going to lead to more injury, more stress, more pain compounded over time.

So why not try to do something different for a change?


Easy, right!?! One of the most often asked questions I receive here is: “My 5k time is 30 minutes and I want it to be 19 minutes. What do I need to do?” My answer, quite likely, may very well be the most difficult thing that this person will ever do: Think and consider what you could do differently compared to what you are currently doing.

Don’t Try Harder, Try Different.

    🙂 Very appropriate for my goals for today! Thanks. It’s as if you are writing for every unique individual out “there” when you post. You have a gift to touch people with your words and sentiment . . . and courage and motivation . . . and encouragement and introspection . . . and happiness and pensiveness . . . and, well, you get the idea 🙂 Thank you.
