Current "book of the Month" I am getting through is
The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday
Apparently loads of top American Sports teams make their players read it and the last book I read by him was very good so I thought I would check it out
While it is a very good book there is a lot of stuff I have came across before
But of course its alright nodding your head and saying "I came across this before"
The big question is if we are actually taking action on these things
and 1 chapter is titled
Progress Not Perfection
Of course we see this quote all the time on Social Media
and he makes loads of examples of people in history trying something thousands of times before getting it right. The classic stories of Thomas Edison and the Wright brothers etc and then he talks about how we get so dramatic when things don't go our way
and it's so true
We do a diet for all of 4 weeks and throw the toys out of the pram when we're not super skinny by the end of it
We start a business and get super pissed when it doesn't take off as quickly as we thought
We start a training program and get frustrated that we arn't in BEAST MODE after 4 weeks of the program <<<<< AGAIN GUILTY
The real issue here is usually ego. What are other people saying about me, what sort of idiot am I putting all this effort in but yet not making ANY progress
When in actual fact we are making progress
Just not the Instagram worthy, Wow look at me type progress that we all love to bask in
and it's this day to day progress that separates getting the result we want compared to bouncing from idea to idea never really getting anywhere
At the minute I am trying to learn Google Marketing and how to get our site ranking high so that anytime anyone in Cavan or Dundalk search ANYTHING fitness & health related I want them to find us
And was with everything
The more you learn the less you know
It will take at least 6 months of trial and error and chipping at the block before we can get to that point and a few F bombs will be dropped a long the way
But I will be focusing on Progress and NOT perfection
and on that note
I am giving you a little free book as a bribe to scroll around our new site and check things out so Google will think
People are actually on this site, it must be half decent, lets rank it a little higher
So the nerds tell me anyway :)
Anyhoo the book is titled: How To Get Fit, Lose Weight & Tone Up WITHOUT Starving Yourself, Joining a Gym or Doing Boring Exercises For Hours on End! https://www.dutchysfitness.com/ <<<<<------- FREE BOOK JUST FOR YOU Think Big And Kick Ass
