One Mailbox a Day reprise

Healthy habits. Habits are everyday occurrences. Children in your life watch what you do. They rarely listen to what you say, especially if you don’t do it.

Easy peasy.

The long way is the short cut.

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.

Run one mailbox a day for a week.

Second week, two mailboxes a day.

Third week, three mailboxes a day.

Fourth week, you are now running, non-stop, the equivalent of one lap around a high school track, 400 meters.

Mailboxes here are 100 meters apart.

Why take so long to do one lap?

Why not? What’s the rush? You’re in this for the rest of your life, right?

One mailbox a day 2020.

Will it begin tomorrow?

We’d be (April) Fools not to.

Final 120 Days

29 mailboxes a day for a week

Assume 1,600 meters for a mile, or 16 mailboxes.

Began this week (yesterday, Monday, Memorial Day) running 29 mailboxes a day. We will repeat this today through Friday.

This is the start of our 40th week.

The math says for 11 weeks, we didn’t add a mailbox. The weeks we didn’t add, we just duplicated the previous week’s total mailbox’s.

Eleven “mailboxes” equal 1,100 meters – almost 3/4 of a mile.

Son, please bank on slow and steady winning the race.

While we may”only” be at 29 mailboxes for 40 weeks, we have been waking up early and hitting it for 40 continuous weeks.

The real metric is not distance, it’s hidden in the habit transformation.

Two-a-days

Fall hiking in Glacier
Hiking through Glacier National Park is easier if you are active before you arrive.

Two-a-days.

What?

In practice, some people do two workouts, or two rehearsals, of two simulations a day. 

Some do this to outdistance their competition. Some do it out of necessity. And some do it because they’re simply playing the hand they are dealt.

At 5:15am i’m out the door for a run with my wife. This is too early for our son, a high school senior.

He and i are out the door at 6:15am.

During Summer, we will creatively solve for a single run together.

The long way is the short cut

Study like you mean it.

The long way is the short cut.

August 6, 2018 we began running as a Family. One mailbox a day for a week.

We added an additional mailbox most weeks, but in some weeks, we didn’t add a mailbox.

Mailboxes here average 100 meters apart.

One mile would be 16 mailboxes. 

We began week 24 this morning.

Just shy of half a year and we have finally made it to one mile without stopping.

The long way is the short cut.

And yeah, study like you mean it – it reveals insights like “the long way is the short cut”.
