Monday Motivation, 3.2.2020
Written by: Ashley Gershowitz
Every Monday, The Rogers-Long Team meets for one of its two weekly meetings. The Monday meeting always ends with “Monday Motivation” in which a few minutes are spent listening to one team member presenting a quote, a quick reading from a book, a scene from a movie, or anything else they find motivating to provide a “spark” to the whole team on a Monday morning.
The Four- Step Checklist to Overcome Obstacles
The Four-Step Checklist by Scott Jurek
Have you ever gotten to a place where you are ready to stop or give up. If so, you are not alone! You can try this Four-step checklist to overcome obstacles.
Number 1. Let yourself feel how you are really feeling and acknowledge it. That could be exhausted, in pain, hungry, etc.
Number 2. Take stock. Are you mad because you forgot to do something, did something you did not have to do, pushed yourself to hard doing something, etc.
Number 3. Ask yourself, what can you do to remedy the situation. Are you willing to stop whether it be exercising, something work related, preparing for a big test, etc.
Number 4. Separate negative thoughts from reality. Don’t dwell on feelings that aren’t going to help.
Once you go through this checklist, your mind will give you the answer. I know for me, I use this frequently with running. I start to feel tired and I acknowledge it. I take stock of where I am and what my goal is, then I weigh my options and lastly I separate the negative thoughts from what I am doing. That can always be one of the hardest parts but I have to go back to how important the end goal is to me whether I am training for a long race or running a Marathon.
What are some things you do that this Four-step checklist can help you through to succeed?
