yesterday morning sitting on the couch.


The photo above captured yesterday’s mid-morning heartrate. It was an Apple Watch prompt to take a minute to “breathe”. So i did. Haven’t run in months.

A few minutes ago, i got a verbal agreement that Easter 2017 is the beginning of a new life.

Not to lose weight, but to become more active.

Do what you say you’re going to do

Funny saying about working out
Sanibel Island gift store item.


What should we do when apparent disaster attacks our lofty, inspirational dreams?

Do what you say you’re going to do.

There’s a reason for everything.

Many reasons never get discovered, and the lesson never learned, because we quit.

Do what you say you’re going to do.

Only 13 days before Nationals. Sure, i could literally cry from the disappointment. But instead, i will focus on, and rejoice in, the journey.

After all, all of life is a journey.

What if we had a great reputation with ourselves?

You know, that first thing we think of when we think of ourselves.

For example, our ability to do what we say we’re gonna do.

But our dreams are crazy. Tiring. Mundane even.

This is a long hard journey.

Too long.

Too hard.


A sub-six minute mile does not fall from the sky.

Wanted a sub-six. Delivered a sub-six.

Do what we say we’re gonna do.

Exercise Change Leadership?

Change leadership.  Personal leadership.  Great Leaders use these buzzwords.  And why not?  They sound inspiring and focused.

All with a simple purpose – to make things better. And it’s harder than ever to make things better.

So, how can we make things better?

What if we restated the beginning phrases:

  1. Transformational change
  2. Transformational leadership

And it all starts with the person in the mirror.  And next it starts with a commitment to get healthy and stay healthy.

Ya in?
