Stories and What’s Good for You

Yesterday I made a plan for myself and this morning: Wake up early. Go for a run. Waking up and going for a run would be good for me.

“Most of the things we say are so wonderful and amazing will lose without a fight to an extra hour of sleep.” – Scott Berkun, Confessions of a Public Speaker

In the morning, while still in bed, this thought comes to me: “Lukas, go for a run. It will be good for you.” I pull the blanket closer and close my eyes for a moment.

Then another thought: “It’s your last chance to run up the Rocky steps.”

I throw the blanket off, get up and put on my running gear.

It’s good to know what is good for you. For moving to action though, you might need a story.
