Are You Controlling Your Dominoes?


Everybody’s life has these moments, where one thing leads to another. Some are big and obvious and some are small and seemingly insignificant.  – Peter Jackson




Sometimes one setback or failure could lead to another. I recently experienced a minor injury to my foot while working out. This sparked a chain reaction, a domino effect. Before I knew it I was eating more junk food, watching more television, and feeling less motivation to work and pursue my goals. It was definitely not a complete one-eighty turn from my goals, perhaps this is what makes it dangerous, but it was enough to get my attention.



Although it did not completely take me off my path, the conditions it created was enough to get my attention. It’s like a snowball. If you spend years driving a car one or two weeks off from driving will not greatly impact your driving. Much like a snowball rolling downhill will not be stopped by a small rock. The rock my create friction, but it will take many rocks at consistent intervals to stop the snowball from rolling. 



I learned that the domino effect can work for us or against us. For example when I workout regularly it makes me want to eat healthier regularly which gives me the energy to work on my goals regularly.


I learned that my condition was more of an indicator, a desire to overcome my setback, get back into the flow, and continue toward success.


I learned that it’s okay to enjoy some rest, television, and chocolate every now and then. There just needs to be some balance.
