Procrastination is the death of succes...
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and saw the new year in happily, safely and surrounded by loved ones. I, myself, am still recovering from a very hectic 10 days of Christmas & New years celebrations and finding it a teensy, weensy bit difficult to get back into the swing of things. OK, ok what I really mean is, I'm finding it hard to get back to Crossfit.
Ok, alright it isn't the end of the world, but I'm finding my motivation is lacking and I am overthinking it. Now crossfit.. If you didn't know, crossfit takes you to the next level. It reeeally hurts. And it hurts even more when you've had holidays, binged on everything in sight, drank the cupboard dry and are now carrying an extra few kilos. Now you should know that I love Crossfit, (not really, I hate it. It's a love/hate thing - if you do it, you'll be nodding in agreement) and I really want to get back into it, but I am actually scared! Scared of working out, scared of the aches, pains & DOMS, scared of the coaches yelling at me, scared of running in this heat. Whimp.
How do I get past this?? I've been here plenyatimes before and I need a push in the right direction. I need motivation. I need help. So, I jumped on our Crossfit group page and posted a status: "Struggling hard to get over NY/Chrissy and get my arse back to crossfit. Tell me it won't be as horrible as i think it will be.."
Thank you Facebook.
A few minutes later... "You got this Tegan, easy", "It will be fun", "Get your butt here!", "Easy or hard, it doesn't matter, just being there will make the difference and then it's a week later and you're like 'why did I even worry?" And my favourite - "Just get there and all will be well. Procrastination is the death of success."
Procrastination is the death of success.
I LOVE this!!! Why?? Because I am a professional procrastinator and my fellow crossfitter hit the nail on the head with that comment - stop thinking about it Tegan and JUST DO IT. So I booked in my 3 classes right then and there. Death by crossfit will be at approximately 7:15am tomorrow morning. ;)
So what is the point of my little 'blog' here? To begin 2016 with some new guidelines.
1. Stop procrastinating. Just do it, don't over analyse, don't overthink. The quicker you do what you should be doing the sooner it'll be done. Productivity in all aspects of life will go through the roof!
2. Focus on the positives. Look on the bright side. Be optimistic.
3. Ask for help. Don't be afraid to seek out help, or encouragement, or answers, or guidance, or support this year. That advice might just be the missing link between you and the better, new you.
4. Try Crossfit. You'll love/hate it.
