Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
Succeed in the small things ...
I have come to understand this - succeeding in the small things - is the way we eventually succeed in the big things. Those ‘small successes’; really, really, really, matter.
On the mat - rather than focussing on the ‘whole technique’ it is usually better to remain focussed on achieving just one small ‘step’ of that technique - and then the next, and then the next, and so on … staying invested in the ‘process’ is how great goals are eventually achieved.
So - to be practical - get up in the morning - and get that ‘small success’ under your belt - make your bed! Even one box ‘ticked’ - is infinitely better than no boxes ‘ticked’. The small successes are the key to the big successes - in the same way that ‘keeping small promises’ are the key to being able to keep the big promises.
One of the cornerstones to success - is to make small goals and hit them. Succeed in the small things! The rest will take care of itself. - JBW
