You just do this

You may not know it by reading my blog but I really enjoy running or maybe I should call it jogging. I am not fast and I don’t run very far, I do 3 miles a day during the week and my pace is somewhere between 9:30 and 10:00 a mile. I am not a fan because of my skills or lack of them I am a fan because running is cheaper than therapy. I get about 20 to thirty minutes of time where I can meditate and exercise at the same time. During and after a  good run I feel both refreshed and tired. It is hard to describe but how to run is very easy to describe.

My second oldest son joined the track team at school and has been practicing cross country running. I think he really enjoys it, at least that is the impression I have gleaned from speaking with him after his practices. Just yesterday we spoke about running and the conversation got to the simplicity of the action. “You just put one foot in front of the other and you don’t stop until you’re done” that was the quote from my track star son.  He is right though.

We live in an era of “big data” and there are experts who analyze everything but there has to be action to have this data to analyze. There is nothing wrong with analyzing data unless this analyze is not coupled with action. Sometimes we can over analyze and get nothing done.

There is a quote that is often over used but I still love it. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the things you did… ” Mark Twain
