6 lateral burpees over bar On Monday there was a post about commitment. People posted replies and it was clear that it is something that is on people’s minds. It’s been a couple days, and I’m going to ask you something you may not like — have you done anything? Did you file it away as an insight for later use? Did you commit to something? If you did nothing, I have to ask — do you expect things to be different?
I’ll be the one to break it to you — insight without action is of no use. Insight without action is insight. That is all; it’s a feel-good moment. That feeling you get with insight is a door opening. Sometimes that door stays open for a day, sometimes an hour, sometimes 30 seconds. Your job when it opens is to CHARGE THROUGH IT. Take an action. Whichever one matters right now! Don’t expect it to be open the next time you look. You will find over time that ACTION takes less energy than NO ACTION, when action is called for. Fighting taking action is enormously draining — it feels like trying to contain an explosion after it has gone off.
Take a look at this video about commitment and tell me what you think. I will warn you up front — it is inspiring and confronting. It is beautiful and it may make some of you mad. It will ask you, “how bad do you want it?”
