How many times do you let a minor inconvenience stop you from doing what you said you were going to do?

Imagine this: Your alarm goes off. You’re comfy under your blanket and you don’t want to get out of bed to get dressed to go workout like you said you were going to do. You’re tired because you went to bed later than you planned. The tiredness is a minor inconvenience so you stay under your blanket fortress.

While watching an Instagram story by Mel Robbins I was reminded of this simple truth: there will always be an excuse not to. There will always be a reason you say that you can’t or won’t do something. It really resonated with me because I have been making excuses to not get up and exercise in the morning like I used to. The truth is I fell out of the routine of getting up and getting my butt to the gym before work. Laziness and complacency have taken over and despite wanting to work out I just don’t.

The minor inconvenience in my case has been being tired. I neglect moving my body and forget about the larger goal because of the smallest of excuses. When I catch myself making excuses because of a minor inconvenience, I know I have to revisit my goals and change my mindset about what’s holding me back and get back to work.

How about you? What is something you want to (or know you need to) do but you are letting a minor inconvenience stop you from accomplishing it? What has been your excuse not to get it done?
