Small Deeds

“Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned”. — Peter Marshall

Whatever your health goals are, nothing really matters except that you get started and never quit.

Sow your health seeds.  Nourish them.  Water them.  Watch them grow.

If all you do is walk away from your residence for three minutes and then return, you’ve walked six minutes. That six minutes, by itself, is nothing really.

But what if you did it four or five days in one week?  What if each week, you added 30 seconds each way – or one minute roundtrip?  In four short weeks, you’d be walking ten minutes per day.

What if you built on this success, slowly, and continued this habit for ten more weeks (now three months total)?  You’d be walking 20 minutes per day, four or five days per week.

What if you walked 20 minutes, 4-5 days per week, for a year?

What if?  What if doesn’t matter if you don’t get started.  “Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned”.
