Sometimes doing nothing is a lot better than doing something. And sometimes doing something is a lot better than doing nothing.
For example, in the investment world it’s often best to do nothing. But when it comes to physical fitness it’s often best to do something rather than nothing at all.
The truth is that there’s always some sort of action going on, whether you’re involved or not. Though you might not trade a stock for months or even years, things are still happening in the economy that will affect your investments. Though you might not exercise today or even this week, countless things are happening inside your body every second that you’re totally unaware of and that will affect your health in unpredictable ways.
Your job isn’t to control everything. Nor is it to sit back and let everything happen without your influence. Let wisdom guide you.
