Playing Hurt (Happy Pre-New Year)

Steven Pressfield’s been a well of inspiration to me. Not just for explaining the resistance in all its forms. But for reminding me you persevere. 

When necessary, you play hurt. Yes, you need to rest, recover, and not be a full crazy person. But with a sense of balance, you accept the challenges every day. 

As you prep your new year’s resolutions and ambitions, maybe these words will help you too:

This will be a short post, with a short moral:

It’s hard.

It’s supposed to be hard.

If you’re experiencing it as hard, you are not crazy. You’re sane. Your perception is on target.

When you’re stretching it’s hard and that’s all there is to it.

I’ll try to remember that, if you will.
