Marty sent me the following thoughts from John McPherson at P3 CrossFit:
In a discussion the other day about why people do the things they do, a friend with a professional computer background brought up an interesting view point called a ‘Deadly Embrace’. Here is his explanation…
“In computer science a deadly embrace occurs when one application is waiting for another application to meet an impossible condition. This forms a circular waiting pattern which prevents other processes from using valuable resources, a condition known as resource starvation.
Sometimes we can get into a deadly embrace with our own ideas. For example, I know many people who are waiting to start working out until they get stronger. But they’re not going to get stronger until they start working out. Since the wait condition can’t be met, the person never gets off the couch.
I know other people who want to write, but they never put pen to paper because they are waiting to become better writers. There are a lot of great novels just rattling around in people’s heads.
Just like a computer, the person who is locked in an ideational deadly embrace suffers from resource starvation. This is why people so often feel “stuck” in life. The perpetual waiting drains the emotional and spiritual energy that they could use to advance a goal or a dream.”
Maybe you’re in a deadly embrace, but escape is possible.
Unlike a computer you have free will.
Step 1: Identify the wait condition that is draining your energy.
Step 2: Stop waiting for it.
Those words really resonate with me after several experiences of the past few weeks.
What’s your deadly embrace? What are you doing to escape?
