Have You Gotten Started Yet?

Have you gotten started yet?

Last week I talked about how after the craziness of end of summer/back to school it was time to get back into the swing of things. 

I finished that post saying the longer it takes you to get started again the harder it will be.  

So I ask again...have you gotten started yet?


I typed the word "inertia" into Google and the above came up.

The longer you wait to get back to the gym or yoga or whatever the higher your tendency to do nothing will be. You have to be your own external force to enact change. (This paragraph only makes since if you actually read the definition above.)

Being your own 'external' force sounds weird but ultimately it is up to you to take action. The thing to remember is:

Imperfect Action > No Action

People that say things like, "I woke up and I was 50lbs heavier..." get caught in this state of inertia. It doesn't happen overnight. It happens over nights. Lots of consecutive nights. 

As the cliché goes, the best time to start was yesterday. The next best time is now. 

(I hate clichés and often use them very tongue in cheek. That being said, they get to be clichés for a reason.)

So I ask again....

Have you gotten started yet?
