Set Up To Fail

.
It’s something I’m really good at… setting myself up to fail.
.
When I want to improve my game, evolve to the next level, I start to come up with all sorts of strict rules…
.
And you know what? They often don’t make me happy.
.
Not in the hedonistic way… rules and discipline are meant to be a bit hard.
.
But when they’re set up against our own nature, when they’re not actually in the direction we want to go (but in the direction we think we should go), they take more force than necessary.
.
Do you do the same? Do you set up rules that you pretty-much know you’re going to fail at?
.
Do you do it so you can beat yourself up later?
.
Where’s the balance? That’s what I’ve been finding more and more. The balance.
