Today I can hardly move. I injured my back severely while surfing on the weekend, and pretty much had to crawl out of bed to get myself to a physician.
More than anything I deserve it. I have been neglecting my health recently. Finding a reason not to go to the gym, putting off exercise and doing that little bit of extra work. Putting ‘that’ above ‘me’ is a bad mistake. It’s an immediate reminder of this: Without your health you have nothing. No amount of money or success can replace it.
If you want to start anything worth doing, start looking after yourself. Your health should be number 1 on the priority list at all times. Above any goal, any project or any material desire. And that means scheduling in exercise and eating well, regardless of what it must replace. If your job or startup is impacting your health, then you need to to quit and start something which is more complimentary to long term living.
