The Power of Elimination

That said, getting rid of wasteful items and decisions is relatively easy. It’s eliminating things you care about that is difficult. It is hard to prevent using your time on things that are easy to rationalize, but that have little payoff. The tasks that have the greatest likelihood of derailing your progress are the ones you care about, but that aren’t truly important.

When you try to do too many things, you end up doing nothing. That’s me. There are many things that interest me. For example, yoga, running and calisthenics. I love them all but I cannot be training for all of them. Because of time, work and etc , etc and if I try to do them all, I would not be good at any one of them.

Doing yoga once a week will not make be a better yogi, the same is true for running. I need to train regularly at one thing. When I was crazy with running, I train 5 times a week for my run and I improved.

Now my goal is to a better strength athlete and I need to eliminate some of the other passions I love because I want to be good at it. So I had to let you go “running” maybe years later I will be back 🙂
