Tal Ben-Shahar is the author of “Happier” and “The Pursuit of Perfect.” He has also taught one of the most popular courses at Harvard.
Yesterday, I asked Tal, who was Israeli national squash champion, if he ever felt like NOT practicing.
Tal said that quite often he didn’t feel like practicing, but “feelings are irrelevant, so in turn, they are MOST relevant. Accept feelings as part of reality, then do it anyway.”
What do you need to do today but are putting off?
