Rust

 

Regular training keeps your skill set sharp.  I am a mental health therapist and jiu jitsu player, which happen to be two endeavors that require regular training for peak performance.  Negative consequences inevitably follow an apathetic approach to training, in that my profession mandates it for licensure, while my passion requires it in order to avoid (or give out) an ass whooping. 

Despite these consquences, it’s incredibly easy to avoid the more monotonous or grueling aspects of jiu jitsu training.  It’s even easier to  put off signing up for expensive, time consuming Continuing Education trainings.  To keep my skill set from acquiring too much rust, I keep this in mind: 

“Don’t give up what you want most, for what you think you want now.”
