Rule #29. Learn, train, and improve.
Tomorrow you’re going to wake up, get out of bed, and go about your day. Maybe you’ll head to school or work, or maybe you have a home office where you’ll begin your day’s tasks. You know that the routine can get a little boring, but it’s also good. It lets you pay the bills and it’s not a terrible way to spend the day, if you’re lucky. All in all, your tomorrow will be much like your today, and you’ll be much like you are today.
Let’s hope not.
Sure, most of us have to work and pay bills, but you don’t want to wake up tomorrow exactly as you are today. You want to wake up better than you did today, even if it’s just a microscopic improvement. That’s why you have to commit some time and effort to learning and training. Because that’s how you improve. That’s how you prepare yourself for new adventures.
You don’t have to spend hours in the gym, library, or classroom every day. While those are all fine ways to spend time and improve yourself, the important thing is that you’re doing something. Have you read a book lately? Gone for a hike or a run? Done a few push-ups or pull-ups? Meditated? Practiced a new skill? Taken a class? What are you doing to ensure that when you wake up tomorrow you’re better than when you woke up today?
I will admit that I can be the worst about this! I get busy and I don’t eat right, or exercise, or read, or take time to learn anything new. However busy I may get, there’s no excuse for spending at least a little time every day to better myself. So if you have trouble with this too, from now on let’s do better about working to improve ourselves. Let’s make sure that every single day we are doing something, however small or quick it may be, to make forward progress.
Keep yourself encouraged, and if you need some support, I’ll be right here. So let’s keep at it. Let’s commit to learn, train, and improve. Before we know it, we’ll look back and see how far we’ve come.
