Short vs long term

USATF website welcome page
USATF = United States Track and Field.

The two main differences between a short-term and long-term dream:

  • the length of time needed to be successful
  • the level of determination expended to be successful

Insight: Reaching a short-term goal (say running a 10k) is one thing. Staying vibrantly active for a lifetime (long-term goal) is another.

We often get blinded by short-term success. But we should see the blindness coming before we even begin.

Allergic to most pollens and mediocrity

Allergic to holding onto things that are no longer useful. These dishes where the first ones we purchased as newlyweds, inspired by our bicycle honeymoon trip. They are neither dishwasher nor microwavable safe.

Allergic to most pollens and mediocrity.

Allergies complicate breathing.

Breathing is an all day, everyday activity. Duh. Right, but think about having breathing challenges and trying to do cardio.

Mediocrity complicates everything.

How’s your health?

Remarkable?

Congrats.

Time for a pre-work workout before Disney

Two nights ago, after returning from High School Senior banquet. Missing two hours seems inconsequential. Knowing your sleep hours standard ensures your aim is almost always close.

There’s time this morning for a pre-work (Disney Podcasting day) workout before Disney.

Two hours: one hour for the four-mile round-trip walk to gym and one hour at gym.

How cool is that?

Super cool.

A lifetime of getting to a place, at 60 years old, were i call the shots, take the risks, and enjoy the fruits from a life at Disney.

Son, learn as much as you can from what i say (the teaching and explaining behind the why) and especially what i do.

Why do we choose to exercise?

swimming pool fill to the brim
The automatic water level re-fill control isn’t working so the water level was low enough that i had to manually refill about three inches to be safe. About eight inches later, i realized my forgetfulness.

Why do we choose to exercise?

Doesn’t matter why.

What matters is that we choose.

Having and not having are equal?

Feynman quote
Yes and, do you expect to be healthy, because i expect you to be healthy.

Is not wanting something as satisfying as having it?

Not wanting it is like having it.

For example, chocolate. Having no desire for chocolate is satisfying. Eating chocolate also satisfies. The desire is quenched either way.

Satisfying.

No?

Except maybe, for example, not wanting personally vibrant health.
