I read these words online somewhere: “It doesn’t get easier, you just get better.” The words have been haunting me the past few days. As I lifted the dumbbells, I noticed they felt lighter. Nothing changed about those dumbbells. They weighed exactly the same: five pounds. It didn’t lose a few pounds. The only difference was I kept doing exercises with them, so they felt lighter.
Late Saturday night, I maneuvered my car into a tight parking spot. I’ve always struggled with parking. It would take me several attempts before getting my car within the confines of the yellow lines. I would move back and forth, over and over, stressed by the activity my knees would tense up. But not tonight, I got into the parking slot easily. The parking slot didn’t change. It is exactly the same.
Conditions don’t change whether it is weights you have to lift, or parking slots, or writing 1000-word-articles. But when you keep at it, you do get better.
I do like the slogan of Nike, “Just do it.” But I realized, it is not enough. You have to “Just Keep Doing It.” Constancy and consistency are essential in getting better. It will never become easier. We can only get better. Let’s keep doing it!
Have a great week ahead!
