Four growth rings

From a fascinating TEDx Talk.

The growth starts at the bottom and rises. Chaos is not the goal. The goal is to avoid the two ends, and thrive in complexity – that’s where we learn and grow.

  • Chaos
  • Complexity
  • Order
  • Stagnation

Comfort equals stagnation.

Sleeping in, eating processed foods, avoiding annual checkups, not exercising, you get the picture. Comfort.

Any questions?

Have you tried the snake oil?

There’s something about daily margin that never gets old.

Have you tried the snake oil?

What?

You know the Tim Ferris bestselling book, The 4-Hour Workweek?

Do you believe it’s possible or impossible?

Know anyone who’s succeeded? Know anyone who knows anyone who’s succeeded?

Remember the C25K Craze? You can go from couch potato to 5k runner.

Great, buzz-worthy mantra. All snake oil pitches are.

Can you guess the percentage of couch potatoes who have been transformed physically since finishing their first 5k years ago?

Good morning

One walking partner is in college, the other lives at home. One character is named Rowdy.

Heading out the door at 5:30AM to walk for 30 minutes has so much competition from other easier things to do at 5:30AM, namely sleep, drink coffee, etc.

So why head out the door at 5:30AM?

Think about it this way, if i have to explain, the answer will most likely never be understood by the recipient.

Character traits and behaviors are an asset. Do what you need to do to get and stay healthy – for a lifetime.

100% on the second workout

A typical hike in Glacier is 10 miles with 2,000′ gain and 2,000′ descent.

Not sure why i was able to do the same thing i did over five weeks ago.

You take a break that long and you have to lose something – maybe even a lot.

Not this time.

The only difference is that while i missed going to a gym, i did not miss staying vibrantly active outdoors.

In the past, missing two weeks at the gym and it was almost like starting over. From this historical experience, i created a “no more than 10 days without a gym workout” rule.

At 10 days or less away, i was able to pick up exactly where i left off.

Purple dots and pink princess dinosaurs

Dinosaur princess
Inhale creativity and produce a years. dinosaur princess. Two days ago at Orlando airport.
College recruitment day
Yesterday. Only 12 name badges had purple dots. The other 120 badges were half blue dots and half green dots.

Purple dots and pink princess dinosaurs.

We walked six miles yesterday.

We ate well.

We slept well last night.

Of all the things that are exceptions, moving well, eating well, and sleeping well shouldn’t be.
