It's actually *not* decision time

Thursday, June 16, 2011

So a couple of months ago, in early April, I MADE A DECISION. I decided that even though I was unemployed and living on savings, I would prioritize my health: I would pay the enrollment fee and join a gym (with a contract) and start working out. After the day I signed up (on which I did not work out), I didn't go back until Monday.

That's Monday, June 13th. It's been easy for me over the course of my life to make a decision to take action. The harder part for me has always been following through. I've worked out at the gym 3 days in a row now (I actually really like it there). I had no desire to go tonight - I was tired, my contacts were bothering me, etc., etc... but I did it anyway. Not because I made a decision to do it, but because I just put one foot in front of the other until I'd met my goal.

It feels much better to actually *do* the right thing than to "make a decision" to do the right thing. Can anyone relate?

    Good for you! I always feel so much better after the workout. I'm glad you are getting it done!
