“Nothing is ever attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.” – Samuel Johnson
Just imagine, that we are going to train for the CrossFit Games.
And imagine listing out everything that could possibly prevent us from getting there.
The list.. Goes into the thousands. It’s essentially unending. 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. It’s called paralysis, through analysis. We overthink, and freeze.
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 see those possibilities in a different vein. That they are part of the way, and not in the way. That we recognize the starting line will never be perfect, but we’re going anyways.
