Twyla Tharp’s morning workout routine is an inspiration.
Few people enjoy hopping out of bed and going directly to a workout. So, Twyla “cheated” by making it easier to get started.
In her book, The Creative Habit, Twyla shares that her morning routine was NOT to go to the gym. Instead, it was far more simple: wake up, put on sweats, go outside, hail a cab to the gym.
The thing she is actually trying to do — exercise — was not the thing she committed to do each day. Instead, she focused on getting herself out of her apartment and into a cab. Once she was in the cab and on her way to the gym, the inertia took it from there.
If you focus on the very first steps of the starting line, it can be much easier to just get started.
