Who doesn’t want shortcuts?
I know I do, I look for shortcuts in every way.
Whether it be… even preparing meals, I look to prepare meals in batch so that I’ve got meals for the next few days,
and that’s natural, but I think we look for shortcuts in every single way possible of course.
I want to talk about how we look for shortcuts when it comes to getting results,
all be it changing our health,
changing how our body looks.
I just want to continue with the email and content that I am regularly putting out, talking about this type of things.
We are looking for shortcuts where scrambling around, all over the internet, trying to pick up tips, different methods, secrets to what’s going to get us the best results.
Now in doing that we find ourselves in, I think a little bit of a,
sort of panic/frenzy sometimes likes collection mode.
Just storing all this crap, never actually really using any of it, because it is free and we don’t really value free stuff most of the times.
We just store it like squirrels storing our nuts for the colder times,
except we forget where our nuts are, so to speak.
If you forgive that, may be inappropriate pun.
So anyway, shortcuts.
This came up really for me because I was thinking about a client that I’ve mentioned in the email.
Jerry has learnt to move better; he’s learnt to understand the way his body feels when he is doing the right thing as opposed to the wrong thing.
So the wrong thing being, for instance, you moving with bad posture,
and that bad posture is creating a certain muscle contraction pattern,
you might want to call it / a way of understanding how the exercise affects you, or lack of understanding,
And I think when you get to that point where you really start to understand what you are actually doing and why you are doing it, the penny drops.
That is in itself a shortcut because you are laying down a great foundation, you are then building upon that foundation, and that is the shortest shortcut you are going to get, as opposed to getting stuck into some high-intensity training session, and then suddenly you know you are couple miles down that path so to speak.
You’ve got a flatter belly, but you’ve actually got a bad back and pain in your knees.
So I’ve seen it numerous times before when people go on to a program, follows DVDs, not going to mention any names but you’ve got screwed up knees, and now you have to stop what you are doing, you have to rest and recover.
So is that really a shortcut?
Or was that complete and utter waste of your time,
money and effort.
I think you know the answer to that, I definitely do.
So next time you are looking for shortcuts,
maybe you want to refer back to what I’ve said here.
