Are you texting or training?
Are you checking your social media?
Are you updating your Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram, and Tumblr or are you training?
In the above Instagram video, Arnold’s talking about people in the gym who are texting on their phones while they’re suppose to be training. This post and the post I wrote about yesterday can really be about any type of training. It’s not just about weight lifting or even sports. It’s about your form of art, whether it’s sports, writing, coding, or your profession. It’s all art. We’re all artists but you need to choose what you want to practice in the finite amount of time you have.
I’m not saying you can’t relax or talk with your friends, but if you’re supposedly training then put down the phone and take your art seriously. Get serious, get it done, and get ready to do it all over again tomorrow.
You can text when it’s over.
