“Nothing is ever attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.” – Samuel Johnson
Let’s imagine the two of us are going to train for the CrossFit Games.
And imagine we list out everything that could possibly prevent us from getting there. All of the obstacles.
The list… goes into the thousands. It’s essentially unending.
Now imagine if we tried to solve each and every one of those potential problems before beginning?
We’d never start. We want to realize that we can bring the possibility of failure so far into reality that we never take the first step. There’s a term for this… “paralysis through analysis”. We overthink our next move, and in turn, don’t make a move at all.
So how do we work around this? It’s not that we pretend those possibilities aren’t there. That’s delusional. Those possibilities are real. But we want to view those possibilities in a different light. That they aren’t things in the way, and rather things that together make the way.
We can both recognize that our starting line will never be perfect. But that’s what makes our story, ours.
