When Working Harder Doesn't Cut It

A few weeks ago I wrote about work. I'll re-post below so we can reference:

Clients tell me sometimes they're not in the mood for it. Sometimes, I'm not in the mood for it, either.

But what's it?

Why do we need to be in the mood for something to do the work? And yes, it's work. Existing isn't work. But living? That's work. Thriving? That's a lot of work.

It's called work because it's difficult. Not because we need to be in the mood for it.

Very few people wake up each day in the mood to eat healthfully or in the mood to exercise. People aren't usually in the mood to push themselves harder than they've pushed before or in the mood to be brutally honest with themselves which can be quite uncomfortable.

Of course, what we're in the mood for is irrelevant to how our body performs or how we exist, live or thrive.

This week don't pay so much attention to what you're in the mood for. Pay attention to the work.

Then when you're thriving, you'll be in the mood to continue thriving.

That's what I wrote a few weeks back. However, what if you're working as hard as you can though?

(Although, I truly believe we can all work hard and try harder. I don't think any of us can honestly look at ourselves in the mirror and refute that.)

But, if you think you are, how about this...

Instead of trying and working harder, how about trying different and working different?

How are you approaching today a little differently? How are you approaching your workout a little differently? How are you going to approach dinner a little differently? How are you going to approach after dinner differently?

Those are the questions to ask yourself.
