So I was at a practice for martial arts this past month and I was practicing and I was tired. I didn’t want to go to the next practice session and things were rough. I was physically bruised and beaten as well as mentally tired of technical review.
One of my friends told me this quote that changed a perception for me.
“If you have an hour, will you not improve that hour, instead of idling it away?”
What this meant for me at that time was simple. If I don’t continue to improve or set a different goal for each training session I would be just idling by or letting it go. So I wanted to improve that hour and change my objective for the time I was there.
This can mean several things and can be put into so many contexts but at the ed of the day. Always improve and don’t have a limit or “idle”.
