Stop making it harder on yourself

SMH


I'm fascinated by people who go through life not noticing or caring about things around them. I don't mean this in a callous way, but more so in a "these things don't affect me" way. I'm often truly astounded by these people who don't seem to have a care in the world.


Except...


In actuality, this behavior can be hurting them or making their lives harder and they don't even realize it.

 

It's a simple adjustment


One of the things that blows my mind happens all the time at the gym. People will get on a bike or a rower and not adjust the height of the seat or the footrest and just struggle through their workout.


Let me be very clear, the Assault or Echo bike is hard enough when it's properly adjusted for your height. But if you're too low to the ground or too high, your legs have to work that much harder. And with the rowing machine, if your feet aren't properly strapped into the right height for your feet, you end up lifting your heels and not getting enough leg drive from your quads, which is where all of your power comes from.

 

Why does this matter?


I know you're probably thinking this isn't that big a deal. That these people are getting a good workout in and therefore proper adjustments are more a nice to have vs. a need to have.


However, if you're working harder than you need to, you aren't performing at your best.


If you're struggling, you can't get comfortable and you won't get a good workout.


You might even feel frustrated with your effort and performance.


You might think you're weak, or out of shape or uncoordinated, when in reality you didn't take the necessary steps to set yourself up for success.

 

Wait for it...


The same goes with your bio or your brand message. If it's not clear, if it doesn't sound like you, if it doesn't speak to your audience, you're making things harder than they need to be.


You won't be able to show up as your best and most powerful self.


You won't be able to demonstrate confidence and comfort because you haven't made the small but necessary adjustments.


The people at the gym could make these small changes but those things take time.


It's much easier to just jump on and go than take a few minutes to adjust the seat or feet.


Even though those things would reduce their effort, to them it seems like more trouble than it's worth.


After all, they're doing just fine.


But do you want to do just fine?


Or do you want your work to not only feel easier but deliver something amazing?


Do you want to feel like you're putting in the least amount of effort and getting the maximum result?


That's what a clear and personality-driven bio can do for you.


It does the work.


You just show up and hop on.
