Thankful for Embracing the Suck, Break It Up Into Parts, and Cold Brisk Air

Day 2,256

Growth:

Even though it sounds cold and miserable outside I’ll never regret getting out for a run. Great reminder for me this morning to embrace the suck and get after it rather than staying comfortable. The run was awful chilly but even more rewarding.

Appreciation:

Taking time to pause, reset, and plan out next steps is a wonderful thing. When I think about when I was lost in flow today it was during times when I had a very clear and defined goal that I was able to make progress on quickly. In order to achieve that state on more complex projects I need to pause and break it into smaller pieces. Each of those smaller pieces have capacity for flow – so long as I keep them in smaller chunks. Zoom out, set the plan, break it into parts, and then tackle each little bit step by step. Today was a phenomenal reminder of that lesson.

Presence:

The weather was cold this morning but talk about bringing me very much into the moment! The briskness of the air really got my attention and had me 100% in the moment when I started running this morning. Good stuff!

Thanks!!!
