One of my favorite books of all time, one that literally changed my life, is called the slight she, and it aligns really well with this quote.
This is me at the gym. It’s about 5:15 in the morning. I’m there all by myself (I’m not the only one there but I’m not there “with” anyone). I’m working my ass off. I’m tired. I want to quit. I’m pushing myself.
It feels amazing.
The point of that isn’t to brag, it’s to point out that if something is really important to you, if it matters as much as you SAY it matters when you are in the presence of others, then it should happen even when no one is looking.
And if you’re not that person that’s okay. Just own it. BE YOU.
The idea behind the slight edge is that every day we make micro decisions that have huge effects on our lives.
It’s not one cheeseburger that affects your weight. It’s the micro decision of many cheeseburgers over time that has the effect.
It’s not one day of reading that changes your life. It’s the micro decision of reading ten minutes every day over time.
At the end of the day, none of us is perfect. We are all working to become this ideal vision of ourselves that we have created.
Today, be aware of the micro decisions you are making when no one is looking. And choose those things that your ideal you would choose.
Have a great day!
