Keep Walking

Monday, November 17, 2014

I subscribe to several email subscription lists that send daily or weekly motivational articles, and although I retired eight years ago, I know I don't have to be working at a paying job to gain inspiration and good advice from some of the business-related lists.

One list I still subscribe to is "Great Work Provocations" from "Box of Crayons" by Michael Bungay Stanier. These usually brief bits of wisdom are, in Stanier's words, "like a shot of espresso, but healthier." This morning I was inspired by a six-minute video from the Johnnie Walker advertising campaign.

You don't have to be a fan of the whiskey to enjoy the great scenery and the story of one family's journey toward reaching their goals. Because the video ended with the words "Keep Walking," I couldn't help but think of how some of these Great Work Provocations might also be inspirational, helpful and enjoyed by some of us on SparkPeople.

Here's today's email with a link to the video:

    I've slid away from walking & running & everything else. Now I have to get back to it. That first step is always the hardest.

    'Keep walking' is a great idea!
    For me, walking is an exercise, a therapy, and an adventure.
    Nothing beats it.

    I used to walk 3 miles early each morning--- did this for over 15 yrs. Lately, for several months now--- I have stopped. You remind me to get back at it!
    Thank you!
