My best friend, Dr. Joe Fanning, founder of Working to Wellness, sent me a text message last Friday:
“Need to start having a contest with me. First to 100 push-ups a day everyday texts 100 to other. Must do all push-ups other one does. If you miss you owe double.”
Neither contestant texted on Saturday. But on Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m., I had the thrill of texting “100” to Dr. Joe…Boo-yah!
The push-up is a metaphor for hard work. How do you get hard work done? One push-up at a time. It won’t take as long as you think. It never does. Don’t procrastinate.
As you get stronger, you can start packaging hard work into sets of 5, 10, 15, or 25 repetitions. That’s how you get hard work done.
