Personal admonition (a skewed affirmation)
Start with this meme.
‘ You won’t always be motivated, so must MASTER discipline. ‘
Thats my issue of late. I get with friends, I push my limits and grow. By myself,,,, not so much.
Actually, by myself lately about the most ‘motivated ‘ I’ve been has been to shuffle my kayaks between truck and rack. I get to the lake and look at the water and all motivation goes winging off over the nearest hill to go play with its toes under a tree.
And I’ve made all kinds of excuses as to why; far more than I care to list
admit to and ya’know what? They are complete BULL SHIT. I know better, I even know that the worst thing I can expect is taking a swim if I goof up, but I come up with this internal dialogue as to ‘why not just go home and play with cats’
Grrrrrrr. Sometimes I hate ME.
Is that a solipsistic attitude?
Yes, kayaking is a risky sport. There is always a risk of drowning. But warm water, shallow enough that it comes to my chest, shore close at hand and it is ALWAYS easier to get OUT of a kayak than into one,,, all my ‘excuses’ are total bullshit and I have not been disciplined enough to over ride them.
That bullshit ceases NOW. I have goals in mind and if I can’t master something FUN, how the how can I expect to master the tasks that do more.
That is all, carry on.
