Simple Not Easy

No one EVER said that it was going to be easy..
I am a simple man
I like simple ideas, I eat meat and veg most nights and I have the same lunch every single day
My routines for training don’t change from week to week (programs do but the times are locked in)
I even find myself doing the exact same things every morning when I wake up…
There has been a few times where people have asked me for advice and as I give them the answers that have worked for me OR the thousands of people that I have coached over the past 11 years
I can see in their eyes that they aren’t going to do it…
Some people have asked me about big goals like Ultra runs, some about lifting, some about mobility or injuries and some about losing weight
Every answer I give I always aim to leave out the BS that seems exciting and new but in the end just like everything else, they only work for around 6 weeks
^^^ We are always attracted to new and shiny, kinda like ‘the grass is greener on the other side thing’ ^^^
What we usually find is that the new and shiny thing requires work and discipline too OR even worse it just flat out doesn’t work
I am sharing these thoughts with you for one reason
I want to challenge you to DO THE SIMPLE AND BORING WORK that is required to be great at whatever it is you are chasing down
Want to get leaner??? Cut down your junk food and increase your colourful vegies…
Want to get stronger??? Lift heavy things more often… (ask your coach what to do and
they will 100% tell you, we get a kick out of seeing people work hard and do well)
Want to get better at a sport or specific event??? Do that event as often as you can recover from it…
I know this sounds too simple or basic but that doesn’t mean that its easy
It will take effort, discipline, focus, self control, self drive and even a huge investment of time and possibly money
As I wrap this up today I want to give you (and myself) some homework
Pick the thing you want to improve on and work out the most basic and simple step one that will lead you towards it… from there just do the thing every day until it is either accomplished or you need to reset your target
I hope this helps you as much as it has helped me
Do the homework and see what happens over the next few months
Peace,
Matt Prince
