This quote applies to so many areas of life. When it comes to your fitness or training goals, being flexible is key. Life happens, and you might have to reschedule a training session or skip a meal. You might get injured and need to adjust your training accordingly. It’s best to have a plan, but you can’t crack if some changes have to be made on the fly.
At home, this quote becomes even more powerful. You can’t be too rigid in your demands of yourself or other people. Learn to compromise, and life will be much less stressful. Be like the willow.
