"How you do one thing is how you do everything"
It's an overused and inaccurate phrase.
I used to believe in it.. almost swore by it!
I've since rethought things.
I DIDN'T MAKE MY BED THIS MORNING
I admit it, I didn't.
However, just because I don't value making my bed, does not mean that I don't value other parts of my life.
I am going to sit down at my laptop and write programs for SCRATCH Athletes for ~3 hours today.
I am going to be locked in, focused and give 100% of my value to those programs.
After that I am going to coach in-person for 2 hours.
I am going to give my athletes all of my energy, passion, and thoughtfulness.
But... I didn't make my bed this morning, so is this even possible?
Yes. Yes it is.
How you do one thing is not how you do everything.
We all divide up our value on the various aspects of our lives differently.
Some of us LOVE having a freshly made bed everyday... and that's fine.
Some of us LOVE reading... and that's fine too.
Some love cooking, cleaning, watching sports, walking, hiking... etc.
And we all LOVE golfing... which is, in part, why I love this community.
The point is, we all value things differently.
I don't value making my bed, so I oftentimes don't.
This doesn't mean that I can't value other things in my life.
On the flip side, if I did value making my bed and did it everyday... I still could provide the same amount of value to other things in my life.
These things are all disconnected.
WRAP IT UP
That's it... that's my rant for the day.
I hope you've enjoyed it.
