Tension and attention…

We build muscles with time under tension. We train them. We build relationships with time under attention. We love them. Muscles grow accustomed and adapt to tension. They will not grow unless you increase resistance, change routine, and overload them in new ways. Your closest relationships will not flourish without similar, focused attention. It’s much easier to build strong muscles than it is to build strong relationships.

Masters in the art of living invest their time under tension and time under attention wisely. Normal humans? Take both for granted until someone or something wakes ‘em up. Are you building tension and attention into your system? Slow down. Reflect. Write.

Live hard. Love harder…
