In Crossfit, we know when the work starts. We usually countdown to “Go!”, then get after it, whether we are ready or not. We can plan ahead a little, wear the right shoes, grab knee sleeves, wrap our thumbs, etc., but it boils down to a brief couple minutes before the clock starts.
Life outside of the gym rarely lines up that way. Stressors hit us without warning. The “timing” never seems to be right. We feel like we need to have things aligned and ready before we can take the next step toward something. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about: “I can’t put on that bathing suit until I lose weight”, or “I can’t sit down to relax with the kids until the kitchen is clean.” We are paralyzed by a false state of unpreparedness.
This has been my mentality for years. It has served me well to plan ahead financially, but in other aspects of life I’ve been unable to seize the moment because I “wasn’t ready”. With my work, I see people face their mortality everyday, and it makes me realize there has to be a lot more 3..2..1..GO in life! I’m not saying to throw all caution to the wind, but….
