Why can’t we simply microwave our way to great fitness, relationships, appreciation, or confidence? Here’s what efficiency experts won’t tell you.
I’m an efficiency and process freak! When I’m stuck in traffic, I reimagine energy-saving transportation solutions or wonder what systems are involved in the proficient mass-production of break light covers. Oh, I’m a riot in the workout room, too! I master my most effective workout routine, the one that gives the most strength, cardio-fitness, and flexibility for my investment of time. Maybe you’ve been tempted by the 7-Minute Workout video as seen on TV-- only to find out you could have purchased the 6-Minute Workout video?!
Well, I actually had a 5-Minute Workout this week on our new exercise equipment. Not counting the hour of assembly time (which was relatively efficient), here’s my workout diary:
Some things, like learning, just aren’t efficient. What else is equally inefficient?
In a world of efficiency experts and fast forward buttons, we can’t simply microwave our way to overall fitness, deep relationships, sincere appreciation, or daring confidence. We can’t just press buttons to see what they do, we must truly practice focus, thoughtfulness, and patience. Discovery, partnerships, gratefulness, and boldness can’t be mass-produced. They all come at a price—investment of time. Curious about what happened on Day 4 in my Workout Journal? Ask me!
