Enjoy the unenjoyable

Getting out of a warm bed into the cold morning will be uncomfortable. Yet you’ll quickly adjust, and will in fact be thankful and satisfied about getting an early start on the day.

Introducing yourself to that new person will be a little awkward. However, you’ll soon have a new acquaintance whom you’ll enjoy knowing.

Whatever you know you must do, go ahead and do it. Stop wasting your time and energy putting it off or overthinking it.

You may not get it perfect, yet you can get it done. It may not be the most pleasant experience you’ve ever had, but you’ll certainly survive.

And in fact, the more unpleasant it is, the better you’ll feel when you get it over with. So go ahead, do yourself a great big favor, and get it done.

Jump out of that bed, make that dentist appointment, write that report, hop on that exercise bike, and get it all behind you. Enjoy getting the unenjoyable stuff done, and discover there’s nothing that can stop you.

— Ralph Marston
