Lately, I've been feeling like a quitter given that I didn't follow through with my Ironman goal. But this quote says it all.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, the ability to quit easily makes us healthier—and wealthier—than does leechlike tenacity.
After I called the race director and got a partial refund, a heavy weight lifted. I knew I wasn't training like an Iron"wo"man would. There were days when I wasn't doing anything at all. Weeks when I would get up at 3 a.m. and swim 3000 yards and do 25 miles on the bike. I would be consistent for 2 weeks than there was a lull. Once I made the decision, I'm back in life again.
Sure, the goal made me focused.
This morning is the first morning, when I woke up and did Yoga, early, for an hour and a half, outside in nature, with the birds. It was a beautiful practice, just because!
Quitting easily makes us healthier.
