We’ve made the olde workout – fiction analogy before.
In case you missed it……….
Whilst a good fiction writer knows that the purpose of each chapter………..
Is to make you want to read the next one…………
A good coach knows that the purpose of a good workout………..
Is to make you want to do another one.
Part of that is the feeling that it’s doing something, of course.
That’s a given.
But part of it is a level of enjoyment that means you’re up for doing it again.
The feeling of satisfaction, the social side of doing it with others, the not being excessively sore after and more.
A 60 or 80% effective workout that you come back to do again and again beats, hands down, the 90 to 100% effective workout you hate and never want to do again.
Something our industry forgets all too quickly as they “beast” you into the ground.
I thought of another way this analogy works the other day.
Ultimately, the purpose of any ‘better’ choice should be to make you want to do it again.
The purpose of a good food choice is to make you want to do another.
The purpose of meditation should be to make you want to meditate again.
The purpose of getting more sleep should be to make you want to get more sleep.
The purpose of changing what we drink (potentially less caffeine, sugary drinks and / or alcohol and more water) should be to make your want to continue with that.
If it feels like a pain in a*se, we’re not going to do it again.
At least not enough to get where we want to get to.
If we do it in a way that is, perhaps, sub-optimal………..
That feels worthwhile for the benefits it’s creating……….
But is still, at least, sufficiently enjoyable that we want to do it again……..
We, hopefully, will.
So, what does that look like?
What are the “better” food choices that you can make that you’ll want to make again?
