8/23/2016 – recovery day, drills
With the Annapolis ten miler coming up this Sunday, I am giving the blister on my right foot a rest. No running today. Instead, I opt for the Achilles and general strength drills.
A common excuse of “I am too busy” is used to get out of unpleasant tasks – obligations you don’t want to comply, phone calls you don’t want to make/ return, or people you don’t want to meet.
And it gives a false sense of self importance. Too busy for trivial matters. Really?
Reality is that saying so frequently, it becomes a habit. A bad habit. And we are all creatures of habit. Easy to lose touch with oneself and one’s purpose, the truly important stuffs.
Ask the questions: Why so busy? Busy on what and what for? What is the priority?
Are you too busy for yourself?
