Are You Ready To Fire...

You won't find any political posts/opinions here....

Sorry :)

Today I want to talk about a concept I've been reading about lately...

Ready, Fire, Aim.  

Read that again. 

You see most people in fitness and in life spend all their time following the belief of Ready, Aim, Fire. 

They spend all kinds of time preparing, studying which way is the perfect way to do it, and waiting until the perfect moment. 

In reality, they never leave that analysis paralysis stage, and never end up firing, or taking action. 

A concept that I myself am trying to constantly get better at is the Ready, Fire, Aim approach. 

You don't want to go into something uneducated, so do your homework, learn some details about it (ready), but then start taking action, fire the damn thing! 

Then you can troubleshoot what's working, what you can do better, etc (aim). 

This is true in SO many facets of life.

In fitness...

"I'll wait until January."

"Let me read about the perfect diet first."

"Let me just loose 10lbs before I join a gym."

I get it. 

Most gyms are intimidating. 

Our goal at Spurling, through constant coaching, supervision and relentless accountability and support, you won't have to figure anything out on your own. 

We're the perfect fit for those who are not confident in the gym, have a low self-esteem to start, and just want someone to tell them what to do. 

But...

We can't pull the trigger for you. 

Once you're in a fitness routine, then we can tweak what's not working, change things up, etc. 

But you have to fire first, then we can aim. 

In life...

We spend all our time bickering about what we want, what we don't have. 

We come up with all these great plans, but then we don't execute on anything. 

We don't do anything different. 

We're all guilty of it, myself included. 

It's time to fire and then aim. 

Get the boat in the water and going down the river, then steer it's course. 

Take action. 

1% better, right?

Ready, Fire, Aim. 

I'll be back tomorrow with a great post from Coach Kim. 

Dedicated to Your Success,

Doug Spurling
