Daily Dose of Coach #269: Time Isn't the Problem

One of my primary goals in my personal training program, as well as my training app, is to make it as convenient as possible for people to train.

Instead of having one or two times to choose from, there are multiple times during the day. With my app, you can choose whatever time of the day you want to train, and your program is waiting right there for you.

The reason is to help eliminate the time excuse. However, time is rarely problem. Yes, many of you can argue who have kids who play sports, businesses to run, or the multitude of other things that fill your calendar. But time isn't the problem; your level of commitment is the problem.

Nothing exists without commitment. You can try to motivate yourself all you want. You can keep telling yourself you'll start on Monday. But with each attempt, you'll increase the stress, guilt and discouragement as it continues to widen the gap between your motivation and action.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "There is no strong performance without a little fanaticism in the performer."  Sometimes to get things done, you have to become a little fanatical, a bit crazy about your commitment. Some may label you these things as you do what they aren't willing to do. But in the end, you may inspire them to get off their butt too.
