Musings Episode 91: Rest, But Don’t Quit…

Well…last week was really something. Little hectic but nonetheless skidded through unscathed.

Which is kind of the premise of this post.

Let’s get started.

There’s a lot of awesome things to do in life.

Come to think of it, there’s a lot of things to do in general in life.

People pick and choose what they’ll do on a day-to-day basis according to what they deem important enough to prioritize.

They pick what forms of entertainment they choose to invest in, what lifestyle they choose to have.

They choose what keeps them busy, and what they have free time for.

I’ve mentioned it before – there’s a culture of busyness that’s been growing that I’m not entirely for.

Work-life balance being thrown off kilter and status symbols being made out of “who has the least amount of time”.

Companies overworking people, utilizing what they ever so affectionately call their “human resources“.

People putting aside what’s important to them, to build someone else’s dream.

There’s an ethos that’s developed when you workout, or get into fitness.

I don’t mean superficial fitness.

I mean mental mettle, it’s still your set, last rep is the hardest, left shaking workouts.

It’s an ethos you develop for yourself, and yourself only – which eventually bleeds into other areas of your life.

You set goals, or milestones…and by setting those milestones, you demand accountability from yourself when it comes to sticking to them.

You learn to prioritize yourself, to know your worth…to assert your value.

It teaches you that if you can push yourself to the limits for others, you can push yourself to the limits for yourself.

So why not do it?

But that’s not what I’m getting at here.

It also teaches you to know when to rest.

To take time out for yourself to recover, when everything seems like it’s building up.

“Rest if you must, but don’t you quit,” is the motto.

Every workout, someone always gets tired.

But you never stop when you’re tired – you stop when you’ve completed everything you’ve laid out to do.

Never quit It is the easiest cop-out in the world Set a goal and don't quit until you attain it When you do attain it set another goal and don't quit until you reach it Never quit Bear Bryant, never quit quotes, Rego's Life quotes, Bear Bryant quotes, Bear Bryant, Musings Episode 91 Rest But Don't Quit, Rego's Life Musings Episode 91 Rest But Don't Quit, Musings Episode 91 Rest But Don't Quit Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regos life, regoslife, musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, rest if you must but don't you quit, rest if you must but don't you quit quote, go after what you want, you don't stop when you're tired you stop when you're done, don't finish when you're tired finish when you're done, how to accomplish your goals, how to set goals, never quit quotes, everyone gets tired, work-life balance

You rest in-between if you have to – like going for 12 reps on a weight where you can only bang out 8 with strict form – sure, you rest-pause until you get those last 4 reps out, never dropping the bar…

But you never quit.

The same goes for life.

If you have things that you want to accomplish or get done, there’s nothing wrong with being a little tired.

Everyone gets tired.

But it’s what you do after you become tired.

Don’t just fold, never finishing what you started.

Rest, recover, and keep going until you’re done.

This is a point you train yourself to get to long after the motivation’s disappeared.

It’s not always a happy place to be.

There’s times when you’ll get fed up, pissed off, frustrated, and feel like you’re moving at a snail’s rate.

But don’t ever quit.

The minute you quit going after something you want for yourself is the minute you’ve chosen to take your life, your free will…and put it in someone else’s hands.

Rest if you must, re-position yourself if you make mistakes…but don’t quit.

Success seems to be connected with action Successful people keep moving They make mistakes but they don't quit Conrad Hilton, don't quit quotes, Conrad Hilton quotes, Rego's Life quotes, Conrad Hilton, Musings Episode 91 Rest But Don't Quit, Rego's Life Musings Episode 91 Rest But Don't Quit, Musings Episode 91 Rest But Don't Quit Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regos life, regoslife, musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, rest if you must but don't you quit, rest if you must but don't you quit quote, go after what you want, you don't stop when you're tired you stop when you're done, don't finish when you're tired finish when you're done, how to accomplish your goals, how to set goals, never quit quotes, everyone gets tired, work-life balance
