Coaches Corner…With Coach Heather

Cutting corners.

We’ve all done it, and we all know how dirty it feels afterwards.  While it’s all Britney-dancing-in-a-prep-school-uniform to feel naughty, it never reeeally feels good to feel dirty(switch to Lil’ KIm-locked-in-a-dark smokey room-with-2 Live Crew).  Just one filthy hot mess.
To compound things, whenever you feel dirty about one thing in your life you KNOW it somehow spills over into other areas of your life: you avoid showering all day after Clovis, you pretend you don’t see people waiting in the cross walk…in front of the churchdown the street, you assume the socks you wore during Clovis might as well just hang tough through tomorrow’s workout, and finally you’re elbow deep in your kid’s bag of Doritos because “it doesn’t really matter at this point”.
Now, think about how it feels to do things the right way: you cross the 400 meter line at the turn around, you redo a wall ball because you know it didn’t reeeally hit the blue line, you replace the toilet paper roll (I mean you actually take the empty cardboard roll OFF and put a new roll on the plastic-metally axle vs. putting a new one on TOP of the empty roll),  and you add an extra 3 ounces of water to your Nalgene because your kid had a sip and you’re monthly goal is to drink 64 ounces…not 61.
You know what Mahatma Gandi (and, Ben Bergeron) say:

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”

When we cut corners, it says a lot about the person we are…and, the person we will continue to  be.
Do things the right way, regardless of how small they seem, and you are, literally, laying down the path to a life of goodness.
And, the naughty that’s good, not dirty.
