Final 120 Days

Still crazy after all theses years

2019 IAAF World Relays from Japan concluded yesterday.

Still crazy about USATF after all theses years.

Son, what’s important to note is that i’m carrying a lifetime of excitement to support and follow Team USA.

Sure, track and field is an obscure sport….not a single friend nor family member is into track and field. Not one.

This lifetime of following facilitates an emotional connection – because i’m a runner – that drives my commitment to staying active.

Leadership Involvement challenges

Recall a time when your commitment came easy in doing important work. What allowed that to happen?

Recall a time when you were on a team where it was easy for everyone to be committed. What allowed that to happen?

What are the similarities between your commitment and the team’s commitment?

Recall a time when you struggled to be committed. What held you back?

Recall a time when you were on a team that wasn’t committed. What held everyone back?

Now, think about your current commitment level. What’s to gain? What’s to lose?

What and how can you replicate what worked for you before? What and how can you replicate what worked as part of a committed team?

Back to your commitment and the power it holds…

Why is moving from fully compliant to fully committed a challenge? What if it wasn’t?

Do you believe there are scalable success factors that you can use to architect the desired commitment level?

Why or why not?

How Much Is Enough?

Finding this harder to do as i age

Disney Motivational Speakers
Christmas evening Family bike ride, yesterday. Shirt buttoned to top because of the cool crisp air. PS. Photo taken while bicyccling.

Finding this harder to do as i age.

What?

Understand (and accept) why the human species, in general, does not:

  1. Exercise cardiovascularly
  2. Exercise for strength
  3. Eat properly
  4. Rest well
  5. Stretch
  6. Exercise core
  7. Get and stay motivated

 Can someone explain this to me please?

Totally feeling like a misfit, outcast, crazy, freak.

To be honest, it totally does not bother me. 

Talking (writing) about it publically helps people process their thoughts and strengthen their understanding of and conviction to an intentional life.

Because of this phenomenon, i kept writing on day 101 of a 100-day self-imposed writer’s bootcamp in 2009.

It’s also the reason i haven’t missed a day writing five daily, differently-themed posts, since April 1, 2009.

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.
