Recently I managed to find again a bit of a groove — both in blogging and running.
What if these two ‘hobbies’ were much more similar than I thought?
Yes one is physical, the other one is more intellectual.
One gets you active, while the other lets you sit on a chair for hours… But:
9- Most times, it’s painful to get started, but the end results will almost always give you a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment.
7- Only VERY few make money at it — no matter how much the sweat.
6- Those around you who don’t share the same hobby simply don’t get it!
5- It does not take much money to get started but it can help transform you deep, deep inside.
4- A little bit once in a while is always better than nothing.
3- The barrier of entry is virtually non-existent but it takes hard work, strong will and commitment to stick with it. Oh yeah, and a great deal of motivation (see friends statement at number 8 above).
2- You try to stick with a routine but it does not mean it’s easy.
1- It takes a lot of time!
