- Finished delivery of commission scaling for the first run.
- Caught up to the latest chapter of "The Lord of Coins" [TLoC].
- Really good ATG session at the gym.
- Ate some of my mom's excellent rhubarb crumble.
- Went to Rob's to eat some more crumble and talk about career, dating, remote work and life in general.
Thought of the day: Reminder that happiness comes after struggle.
I guess this is a small follow up on my previous post.
After a working pretty intensely on delivery this commission project for the past 2 weeks (crunch time), I decided to relax for the last hour of my workday.
That's when I caught up to TLoC.
At the beginning of the day though, I scheduled my gym session at 5pm because I knew that I wanted to arrive at Rob's early in order to leave early.
However, at 5:50pm, I was still in my bed reading TLoC.
In that very moment, I was so comfortable that I almost convinced myself not to go the gym. I was making up stories in my head, telling myself I might need to rest before the upcoming tournament.
Even though deep down, I knew going to the gym was the right move, I still had a hard time getting out of my comfort zone.
Until I remembered my commitment to stop avoiding pain.
The enemy of comfort is action. The more action you take, the less comfort has a pull on you. So I quickly jumped out of bed, put on some gym clothes and rushed out of the house.
Soon after, I was at the gym and the rest is history.
Needless to say, I felt A-MAZING after my workout, as I always do.
This is just a little story to illustrate that there are times when I might know what's good for me, but still have a hard time actioning on it. I hope you can relate.
