Dead last is perfect

GNP.

Lane 8 is the worst lane in the one lap 400-meter sprint. Runners remain in their lanes, with the fastest runners in the middle lanes and the second slowest runner in lane one and the slowest is in the outside lane (8) – huge disadvantage because you cannot see the other seven runners, until they pass you.

That’s the lane i want. Yes, i want the worst lane, and, i don’t care if i come in last.

Lane 8, in the finals. At the world championships.

You can be dead last and still be the eighth best in the world.

Secret hack to improve your health

At Disney Institute, Bob and i agreed to start the one push up a day challenge for a week, and to add a pushup for each passing week. Bob lasted three weeks.

The secret hack to improving your health?

The way to get better is to get better at getting better.

In 1999, i began doing one push-up a day for a week. The second week, two push-ups a day. Third week, three a day, and so on.

Two years later, in week 104 since i began with one pushup a day, 104 pushups a day were done every day that week.

No way possible to start at 104 a day, and also no way it’s impossible if you start small and grow slowly.

What's Our Obligation?

Slow and steady decline

Glacier National Park glaciers
The Glaciers are dying.

 

Slow and steady decline.

It happens in nature.

We are part of nature.

And so it happens to us.

Naturally.

Wait.

Have humans inadvertently found ways to accelerate their decline?

Is it possible to dance with nature and extend the life expectancy?

But if we can’t influence longevity, can we have a say in the quality of life – you know, the notion of personal vibrancy?

Because of the progress we keep showing up

Because of the progress we keep showing up.

We’ve been running regularly for the past nine months, but not until two months ago did we begin to run five days a week.

This is changing one of us in a slow and steady way.

It doesn’t seem like much until you realize it is

gathering firewood in a residential area
Mailboxes are about 100 meters apart where we live.

 

Three mailboxes a day (300 meters) – seems like such a short distance until you compare it to sitting on a couch.
