Don’t be a time traveler

Earlier today, a close friend, who does fitness training, spoke with me about what he refers to as “time travelers.”

“Time travelers” are people who are dissatisfied with some aspect of their lives, but they refuse to try the solutions and suggestions that are proposed to them because they know ahead of time that nothing will work.

Unlike the rest of us, these people have no need to test their skeptical disposition against the hard data of experience because they are able to “time travel” into the future, discover what will happen if they do the work, and save themselves from wasting their energy on useless advice.

Here’s my two cents:

The point of trying is to make your decision AFTER you’ve actually tried.

Trying isn’t trying if you decide to abandon your efforts on the supposition that “it probably won’t work.”

That’s not trying. That’s time traveling.

Don’t be a time traveler.

Stay in the present moment, do the work, and give yourself a real chance to create something new.

That’s my two cents,

T.K. Coleman
