The price we pay

Disney Speakers jeff
Imagine having two parents who spent a lifetime learning and doing here.

The price we pay.

Would our lives be different had a wise coach been active throughout our life?

Few of us will ever know.

Some, a rare few (the outliers and misfits), will mostly know the benefits of having two such coaches and have little experience with traversing in the dark.

Morale of the story?

Observe and reflect.

You may be in a unique position to benefit in ways others only dream of.

Why struggle with exercise motivation?

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
You can (and should) get and stay healthy.

Why struggle with exercise motivation?

To alleviate (not eliminate) future health issues.

And to minimize effects from occasional illnesses.

And, to reduce recovery time from illness or injury.

Wellness is a commitment that needs fun

As we jogged together as a family yesterday for the first time since Summer, i smiled at how many months we’ve been out the door at 5:15am or 6:15am.

Cheryl and i hit it around 5:15am. Chapin and i around 6:15am.

Our distance is nearly 1,200 meters.

If i used distance to measure success, we’d get a low grade.

If i use longevity to measure success, compared to not running at all, we are a smashing success.

What makes common sense decently uncommon?

healthy teens
Do any of the three believe the other two friends are significantly smarter.

Do you think you will be better able to excel at whatever your work is if you exercise regularly or if you don’t?

The challenge with being excellent is that you will carry a lifetime of desire with you to sustain that momentum for your lifetime. Yet life comes with temptations, unhealthy shortcuts, harmful distractions designed to derail excellence. The great news is that you can develop, adjust, and hone your habits and rituals to ensure your foundation remains solid.

The opposite of excellence is to carry the weight of poor choices and lack of hope with you for a lifetime. You can imagine how poor choices compound over time.

Like the theme in yesterday’s posts – waiting and doing nothing are the twin siblings for self-destruction.

Go.

Be amazed and be amazing.

You are worthy. You are deserving. And nothing will ever change that.

Today’s 10-mailboxes a day run was spectacular

sending a video clip through dropbox
The email file wouldn’t go through so here is the Dropbox upload in progress. Just a moment in time. So significant for me.

 

Today’s 10-mailboxes a day run was spectacular.

Our slow shuffle of a jog was the most conversational since we began running three months (14 weeks) ago.

What he did last night and the way he did it impressed me in a way i haven’t been impressed in a long time.

Why?

Just 24 hours prior, Ben (in Madrid) shared that his client wouldn’t even begin to consider me without a video clip.

Chapin went above and beyond on extremely short notice.

The result, considering all the conditions, is remarkable.
