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.
Motivation is temporary. Habits are what really count. It’s easy to fall off-mission; too easy. Most of use fall off-mission with surprising regularity - we fall off our ‘diet’ - our ‘exercise regime’ - our ‘training regime’ - our ‘savings plan’, etc. We all know this …
So - when we are ‘off routine’ - it can be a good idea to do a ‘hard re-set’; a kick-start of our routine - but how?
For myself, it requires a re-visioning of the ‘track’ I want to be on - and then an application of ‘will’ to step onto and stay on, that track at a chosen moment in time. Hard to do - for me at least - but once on track again, it becomes easier, day-by-day. Within a few days - no extraordinary effort is required. Hard re-sets - are just that … hard. But with practise, they too, like any other skill - can become something we can do … when we need to. JBW
