We all know that it isn’t enough to just show up. A focused effort is required to generate an outcome, to progress, to learn and to innovate for success once you are there.
I see people show up at the gym, but accomplish almost nothing while there. Go all in or stay home.
People show up at work to put in their time, but produce very little. Go all in or stay home.
In life, you can just show up. Or you can direct your habits to be all in for what matters most to you and others most important to you.
None of us are perfect. We have our own limitations and face other limiting conditions put before us by others. Stop though to comprehend what obligations you are satisfying and with whom before you would just show up.
“A half-hearted spirit has no power. Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Average people enter into their endeavors headlong and without care.” — Epictetus —
Why bother if you are not all in?
