Friday 12/10 – Gratification from training takes time – more precisely 15 minutes a day and a routine of years
Do we really like routine? Or is it better the excitement of starting something new? We face everyday the problems of delayed gratification ( per example doing 15 minutes of training per day, if you sweat, will make you healthier in the long run) and this sounds to be always possible correct?
The day does have 1440 minutes and 15 minutes is 1.04% of it, so why doesn’t it get done?
It is not easy to maintain that discipline because the gratification from it takes way too long for our “monkey” brains. In the 1990’s Walter Mischel did a seminal study that brought a strong correlation of delayed gratification and success in life.
Application for Krav Maga – one follow along routine added
Take that time for you, have the discipline, perseverance and keep working, building and using small routines in gray areas of your day.
To help this I’ve progressed with a new Follow – Along (Upper and Lower Limbs, Combinations from the Yellow Belt program) – Link here
