Yesterday’s boredom

Disney toys on a rock
Changes what you see, eh?

You handled yesterday’s boredom well.

Love how you took what was happening (boredom with routine) and channeled it into something that didn’t feel like work.

This is how you find a million ways to stay motivated….be willing to flex when it is appropriate. It is almost always appropriate.

Note: This is me talking to me.

Who’s in your ring of motivation?

My Disney Cast Member 20 years of service ring. Both male and female 20-year Cast Members may choose between a Disney Watch or a Disney Ring. Not a watch person nor a ring person. Picked the ring.

Who’s in your ring of motivation?

Motivated people generally associate with other similarly motivated people.

As always, we are mindful of three insights:

  1. There’s an exception to every rule
  2. Be careful what you wish for
  3. “You’re not an expert” mentality

Motivation is tricky

Motivation is tricky.

Why?

Because you need to find a million ways to stay motivated.

Generally, human motivation has a shelf life.

Why?

We get bored.

Our interest expires.

Our results go bad.

Others get ahead of us, frustrating our self-confidence.

Pro-tip: make your burning motivation to succeed – make it for someone else. My motivation is to be an example not a warning. Our son must see a true-life example of physical vibrancy at all life stages. And if he doesn’t see it from me, who’s gonna show him? Who’s he gonna trust?

Insight: Physical vibrancy is one-fifth of the recipe for personal vibrancy.

Perhaps an old trick

Perhaps an old trick.

What?

Train like you are back in High School sports.

In January you start training for Track.

You compete mid-March for two months.

Take mid-May through mid-July off.

Start summer camp in early August for Fall Football. First game is usually after Labor Day and season ends in mid-November.

In those down times you do not become a couch potato, but you do ease off of the intensity.

All told you go about 5.5 months hard for Track, back off 1.5 months before Football, go 3.5 months hard again for Football, then back off the final 1.5 months of the year before Track resumes in January.

The will to physically explore

Of course, the will to get out and move. And also the will to develop physical vibrancy habits that make you the healthiest person (your age) you know.

The will to physically explore.

Do you have it?

On a scale of 1-10, 10 is best.

What’s your number?

Physical life hack, aim for a perfect 10.
