Hard to say what’s right when all I wanna do is wrong-
Who doesn’t like planning? Planning workouts for the week, running events for the coming month, yoga class flow, playlist for cardio kick boxing class. It should come as no surprise to hear that “planning” is generally a good “thing” to do …
This is the point in our lovely post this evening when I tell you that all our grandiose plans are pretty much useless.
“How so?” Most of our plans and goals are not structured in a way that makes them effective if life, “things” go sideways for a spell.
If and Will plans, on the other hand, I have found to be extremely effective to staying the course and making them is an extremely empowering tool to helping you achieve your goal(s).
The trick is deciding well in advance when and where you will the take steps to achieving your goal. Quick example: “If I am falling behind on my training, I Will choose to schedule the time to train.”
When it comes to reaching your goals, because you will reach them – avoiding temptation is critical, focusing on replacing bad habits with good ones, rather than focusing only on the bad habits themselves is vitally important.
Ask yourself the next time things start to go sideways, What will I do to get back on track!?!
Adventure is just bad planning. Discuss 😀
If this is so, then I’m all for bad planning. 😉 I hope you are having a great evening, take care!
Or like my adventurer daughter says: you plan so you calm yourself into not falling apart if and when things do.
If and When – Awareness – Acceptance – Simply being … We can toss into our discussion hardiness for good measure as well. I’m not too keen on using the term “flexibility” to pull us through tough times. Lots of wiggle room in flexibility to make things worse. Hardiness, I kinda like the ring of it. 🙂
Stay the course…my favorite saying for my ADHD days.
Same here, just keep chugging on and soon enough good things will happen. 🙂
Indeed. Poor planning can lead to some of the world’s great adventures. . . but so can training according to schedule but taking a route you have never taken. I took a day off, but shouldn’t have. Maybe I should. I don’t know. My foot is healing, so maybe it’s good.
Can you tell I’m torn?
Cannot wait to get on my bike tomorrow!
I can tell you are torn, any any day off in which you let your body and spirit heal is good in my book. 🙂 Allowing ourselves the time to heal is one of the hardest “things” will will ever do. Take care on the bike today, brilliant day to ride as long as the winds don’t get out of control this afternoon.
Um. Yes. To say the least. I took Dulce on a walk and have been limping a little–not as badly. Just getting tired of being in pain. I think you can identify–and this is just little annoyance pains, not like my knee surgery. Feels like I should be doing more.
I will get on my bike this evening. SO looking forward to it, even if it’s just a few miles around the ‘hood!
