Practice and Pause
This week poses a dilemma, my post needs work. More work than I can finish in an afternoon. It’s a subject I’m passionate about and I want to get it as right as possible. So what do I do? Publish or skip a week? For more than year, my practice has been to publish weekly on Mondays.
The definition of practice is a repeated exercise in or performance of an activity or skill so as to acquire or maintain proficiency in it. I have a daily yoga practice. There are times when I reach a point of fatigue and I just can’t continue certain power poses. I’m too exhausted to have good form and avoid injury. At that point I stop and do other poses.
It’s the same with this week’s post. The power post is not complete, but that is not a reason to abandon the practice of Monday publishing. Kind of like life huh? Everything is not a major power move, some times it’s just a stop, pause and appreciate the moment. It’s only through the cycle of practice and pause, I can do my best work. There is nothing wrong with a pause.
