I want to be honest with you. I’ve written frequently on fitness and how leaders should be focused on being fit.
This is something I’ve been utterly horrible at the past year. My running has been infrequent at best. My bathroom exercises pretty much stopped. My motivation was gone.
The more I thought about my failure to run and exercise, the more down on myself I felt. Then, when I’d get back in the game and actually run, I’d begin to feel doubt creep in.
My mind would tell me things like:
You’ll never run as fast as you used to run.
You’ve taken too much time off. It’s better to give up now.
No one cares if you’re out of shape. By the way, isn’t round a shape?
