Impossible Is For Amateurs

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.

Dear Son

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.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.


Dear Son

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.
