The Discipline of Documenting Discipline
When I began this little adventure, I understood that I was asking a lot of myself. I was injecting a massive dose of discipline into a very undisciplined body, mind and soul. I knew it was going to be hard and I expected to fail, to slip up, but to get back up and go for it again.
What I didn’t anticipate was how much discipline it would take to document the process. I mean, I knew that I would have to be dedicated to do it. What I didn’t anticipate is having the same kind of feelings about blogging that I have about going to the gym.
Over the past couple of days, I have done all the stuff I was supposed to do – exercised mind, body and soul. (In full disclosure, I skipped my workout today to allow a little inflammation in my right ankle to subside.) But each night, I sat in my living room debating with myself whether or not I was going to blog about it. It wasn’t that I didn’t have anything to say. I just didn’t feel like typing it out.
Well, here I am, typing it out – documenting my process. I enjoy it most of the time and dread it on occasion. I think it’s that way with a lot of things in life, especially those things that make us better.
