Today’s prompt was to talk about my experience with the saying- go hard or go home.
Rather than share my experiences with it I wanted to discuss the saying itself.
Do I agree with it? Ahhhh…yes and no.
Let me explain…
In some contexts I definitely agree with it, but not necessarily 100% of the time either. In my BodyStep class or a workout I’m one to advocate giving it your all- because why waste the hour. Though I wouldn’t ever offer the alternative as ‘go home’.
But I don’t agree with it in another sense. Go hard or go home to me makes me think that if it’s not big, significant, hard or whatever it’s not worthwhile, important or a success. And that’s so not true.
You don’t have to go hard or big to have made a considerable difference. It’s almost like taking on the mentality of all or nothing. The thinking is so black and white.
So no I don’t agree with it in that sense, actually as a whole I don’t agree with it at all. But I do see the value in some aspects of the quote- particularly the ‘go big’.
Maybe I could rewrite it…let’s look what we can come up with:
Go big or small, just don’t go home.
Any effort is better than nothing.
Big or Small, it’s all worthwhile.
Go Big- only with ice cream….
oh wait, scratch that last one…or not. Ha!
