I'm a creative person. I have to create, there's no choice in the matter. Much like an addict, it's something that consumes my waking hours and thoughts. .
It has to be done. .
Whether coaching, writing, painting, drawing, music or cinematography, something has to be created each day. .
Creativity and training intensity, to me at least, have parallels. .
It might not be a daily drive like creativity for me, but when intensity calls, it has to be answered. .
It's something that finds you. .
You can actively try to seek it, but then ultimately it's forced. .
Akin to creativity - it happens. It happens without reason or rhyme. It happens naturally, without force. .
Intensity as I see it is a measure of both how much you're willing to give and how much you're working. .
Is there a point to this text? .
No, not really, it's just a fleeting thought. .
The call for intensity did drive me out early this morning with the sledgehammer though. To swing it 200 times each side with as much aggression, force and power as possible. .
If intensity calls, answer it - it makes for a good session.
