Do Or Do Not. There Is No Try (Spot The Yoda Theme)

Day 78 Alcohol Free

It’s silent and the dog is snoring. This makes me chuckle, not a bad start to the day.

The Yoda Bit

What follows is a bit of rambling, I think it makes sense. Let me know if I missed my point, or if my point isn’t obvious.

I’ve been doing a lot of trying. Trying this, trying that. Seeing what sticks. Thinking a whole lot, not just accepting at times I just need to stop and do.

A rolling stone gathers no moss

It’s easy to be the rolling stone, but I’d like to gather a bit of moss (knowledge, progress, learning). I can keep on moving on to the next thing, without really absorbing what I am doing right now. But that isn’t really productive. It’s a lot of energy wasted, with only snippets learned.

I think it is time to get out of my head and start doing. Do the damn thing for a period of time before I make my mind up on its success/failure, before I move on quickly without having learned.

With that in mind. Morning routine is locked in. I do my S.A.V.E.R.S. I do my Wim Hof Method exercises.

While I am doing those though, I am going to learn too. I want to get better at meditation/mindfulness. At the moment I am aware that I know next to nothing. Soundbite knowledge from several different books. I need to do some proper reading on the subject. Also learn as I do.

I also want to address my relationship with food. Currently working through The Kindness Method book and its various exercises. Again, doing and not just thinking/trying. Its a process, I just have to trust and keep doing it.
