The gap being knowing and doing is one of our biggest struggles. We often say something and we mean it wholeheartedly, but until we put action behind it they are just words. As an individual who wants to grow, this is the gap we should be trying to close each day. Here are a few personal examples from my life that I have admitted and worked to close that may resonate with you.
-You know ten minutes of extra free throws or shots at the end of your workout will pay off, but you made plans with friends.
-You know you need to improve your weak hand before next season, but you don’t work at it enough or consistently because it’s hard.
-You know eating vegetables and unprocessed food is best for your energy level and health, but you swing through the drive through because it’s convenient.
-You know you want to read more to learn and grow, but you don’t carve out time each day to read.
-You know going to bed early is going to help you have a productive morning and get good rest, but you stay up one more hour watching a tv series.
-You know you set the alarm so you would get up and be productive, but you hit snooze and stay in bed.
Think about as we make these choices to close that gap how we are becoming better versions of ourselves. Becoming the person we say we want to be. Take a moment to think about what you know but are not currently doing consistently. Don’t overwhelm yourself with many things, but take one or two this week and close the gap!
