Work or Training


Ask yourself is what you are doing just work or is it training? Work is just activity, a lot of nice to do exercises with no central purpose or connection. Training on the other hand is focused, composed of need to do activities in pursuit of a specific objective. Above all training is mindful, it demands concentration not just effort. Certainly work will yield results but training produces measurable progress toward a goal in a predicable time frame. I don’t know about you but I want my training efforts to pay dividends that are predictable. Don’t get caught in the activity trap.
