And he really did it. The 1st day, after the morning exercise, when he went to work, he told his colleagues that he felt very tired. The 2nd day, his mom woke him up saying: "Wake up! I thought you wanted to go for morning exercise?" And then this new daily routine continued for 2 weeks. The parents became more motivated to go because they met other old people at the park and made new friends. At the end of 2 weeks, he had bought 3 pairs of sports sneakers, 1 each for mom and dad, and 1 for himself, to continue this morning exercise routine. After the exercise, they would have a hearty breakfast together. Hence, the start of a healthier lifestyle and a great way to spend time as a family.
The story was told as an example of having an intention to do something, or planning, and actually putting the plans into action. It takes a great deal of effort to overcome the inertia of doing things the old way.
But if we have a plan and put it into action, we will see the results, even if it is just something as simple as taking mom and dad for morning exercise.
