You Win in the Little Moments…

Handstands for five minutes every day.

Muscle up practice twice a week for 45 minutes.

Throwing in handstand push ups when it’s not programmed.

Jumping rope in your garage for 10 minutes a day.

The little moments where you do extra work is where you win the WOD/workout. It’s these little moments that add up to big gains and before you know it, you’re doing the moves without thinking!

This applies to life as well. It’s the piano practice 15 minutes a day. The extra 30 minutes of writing practice. The 15 minute walk. The phone call or text to someone you want to keep in touch with. Coming in early to work 10 minutes early every day. Reading self-help/development books 10 minutes a day. Reading the Bible 10 minutes a day. Listening to your kids when they speak. Asking them questions when they arrive home from school about their day. Texting your spouse you love them every day. Talking to your spouse for 10 minutes every night before bed. Planning time together. Activities. Moments…

All of this adds up to you. You as a better person. Better athlete. Better worker. Better spiritual life. Better parent. Better spouse.

You only have so many moments in your lifetime. Don’t waste them. Add them up. Make them count. Form memories, not items. Hold your kids tight. Kiss them good night. Greet them in the morning. Pray for them.

Time is all you have. How do you use yours?
