What do we do when we don’t know what to do?

We do what we normally do.

  • ask someone
  • Google it
  • procrastinate
  • do nothing

A million reasons to make today another day we don’t exercise.

Which then makes tomorrow even easier to do nothing when we don’t know how to stay motivated.

He’s a swimmer. He’ll never be a runner. He hates running.
