Mindless exercising, mindless reading … how did I go astray for so long?

June 29, 2014

I wish that someone had told me this long ago:

The purpose of exercising is not to complete a certain number of repetitions or lift a greater amount of weight. The purpose is to establish a mind-body connection and stimulate muscle growth and strength.

The purpose of reading is not to reach the end of the book as quickly as possible. The purpose is to learn and grow and incorporate the book’s ideas into one’s own knowledge.

How did I go astray for so long? Am I alone in going astray?
