<p>
	My unwritten condition for when to exercise was this:
</p><p>
	When it’s a nice day, <em>and</em> I’ve finished my work, <em>and</em> I haven’t just eaten, <em>and</em> I’m feeling energetic.
</p><p>
	But of course that rarely happens, so I wasn’t exercising enough.
</p><p>
	My coach suggested I change “and” to “or”.
</p><p>
	When it’s a nice day, <em>or</em> I’ve finished my work, <em>or</em> I haven’t just eaten, <em>or</em> I’m feeling energetic.
</p><p>
	Now I exercise quite often.
</p><p>
<strong>
	Do you have a list of conditions you need to have met before you do something?
</strong>
</p><p>
	Try changing “and” to “or.”
