Do it Till You're Satisfied -1
"Whatever it is, DO IT, Do it 'til you're satisfied" is a very upbeat song that reminds us to do things that make us happy and keep us moving. Even the shoe company, Nike, uses the quote for their shoes and athletic wear of "Just Do It". We have so much trouble just getting started sometimes. It is hard, isn't it? It is hard to get started in the morning, hard to start a diet, hard to leave a dead end job. It is even hard to just get up off the sofa, quit being a couch potato and actually turn the television on or off, much less get up to change the channel.
It is hard to learn to eat right, eat healthy, and eat normal portions. It is also hard to exercise, much less make time to exercise and be faithful to your program. Because it is so hard to do these things, it becomes very important to look for things that can give us incentives. That is why the song, "Whatever it is, do it, and do it 'til you're satisfied", and shoe motto, just do it, means so much to us, because it reminds us to start.
Once we start an activity, no matter what it is, it gets much easier. It is starting the activity that makes us hesitate and put off any action. We anticipate trouble or hardship. Sometimes, we just procrastinate even getting started.
The task at hand is not as hard as we imagine it to be. Adults seem to dread starting something new, such as an exercise program that takes them outdoors to play, whereas children live to be outdoors and play. Have you ever resisted going out to shoot hoops with your son or go shopping with your daughter only to realize in the middle of doing it, how much fun you are having?
