Workout of the Day

Dear Diary

Sometimes I like to give myself a good pep talk when I see that I’m dissatisfied with my behaviors or efforts. Often, this comes in the form of internal dialogue or as a smattering words, ideas, and terse thoughts scribbled in my notebook. Sometimes, it’s a bit more cohesive and directive. I’d like to share a bit of “real talk” that I wrote to myself some time ago. It helps me to refer back to it as a reminder, and perhaps it can help you, too:

It’s not that your complaints or excuses are untrue; it’s that they’re irrelevant to your effort, to the things that you control. Write out a list of all of the things that you have control over in any given situation. Done? Good. Now you have your to-do list. Mark off every item from that list (hint: this is impossible; there will always be more opportunity to improve your contribution) and then (and only then) can you get back to complaining about why the world is unfair.
