Today is one of those days where it's been challenging to maintain good habits. I try to run most days, and I try to blog at least four times per week. Today there were a lot of little things that needed to happen. But I put on my running shoes and jumped on the treadmill and ran a slow mile. Just a mile! (And change for a cool down). I was watching the seconds the whole time, not feeling particularly good. But I figured something was better than nothing.
Same thing with blogging. This is going to be a very short post. Mostly to convey the idea of just doing a mile. I set that as a goal, and most days I want to do much, much more. But some days it's just a mile, and that's OK. Sometimes, letting go of big expectations in the short run can allow for more productivity in the long run. And the long run is really what it's all about.
