As You Get Older

The compound effect from 4 or 5 decades

Granite Park Chalet
Granite Park Chalet sits at 6,700 and is clearly visible here.

If you see yourself as anything other than physically vibrant it’s because of the one simple choice you justify every day.

The choice you make to justify that the daily effort required for vibrant habits is more uncomfortable to you than the daily discomfort from settling for a less than vibrant lifestyle.

Here’s some wisdom from a 60-year old: the magic of compound interest will grow exponentially in the intentional, or the neglectful, daily choices you make during your first four or five decades.

Bank on compound interest, whether you invest or borrow time.

Decline happens both fast and slow

Florida pool pump
Doing home chores yesterday, was reminded by our “new” pool pump motor how quickly unchecked neglect can “suddenly” grab our attention.

 

Florida pool pump
Close up. Pump was shiny and new a year or two ago.

 

In bed later than expected and up much earlier than expected.

It happens.

Work hard to make the most of it.

PS. 159.0/5.0

Neglect is the new tobacco

Good show, bad show at Disney
Neglect can happen over the course of a moment, a day, a year, or a lifetime.

 

Neglect is the new tobacco.

Neglect can happen over the course of a moment, a day, a year, or a lifetime.

The photo above was taken two days ago while exiting the Magic Kingdom and grabbing a drink before walking to the car.

The left button is missing a necessary covering.

Most won’t notice nor care, which is perfect is you’re a Guest.

If you’re a Cast Member, those same odds (most) are insidiously dangerous.

Now apply that concept to your physical activity level, food choices, and sleep habits.

Tell me again why you have never developed a personal wellness plan

Track workout
Dream big. Get there. Stay there.

 

Tell me again why you have never developed a personal wellness plan.

You have a clear, concise, compelling reason for neglecting this common sense, lifetime strategy, right?

Sell me on it.

Common Sense Is Elusive

Would have been easier to turn on the TV and stay in the room

Would have been easier to turn on the TV, relax, and stay in the room. i was tired.

There are always going to be easier choices.

That is, until we get older and our neglect is now no longer an easy choice.
