Of course change is challenging

Ever smaller, and more powerful and more capable.

Found a list from 2008 while sorting through old files last night. It’s context nuetral, meaning it easily adapts to wellness.

  • Be fully present
  • Be self-responsible and self-challenging
  • Lean into discomfort
  • Take risks, make some mistakes, and then let it go
  • Be open minded

Staying motivated looks easy for motivated people

Yesterday’s running route came down to one simple question:

Should i run to the High School or to Disney’s Magic Kingdom?

Staying motivated looks easy for motivated people. But trust me, motivated people are using every trick in the book – plus inventing things – to keep motivation (and progress) alive.

Common Sense Is Elusive

Neither the preacher, nor the small audience offered up the obvious

The ripple effects from exercise are astonishingly deep and wide


Yesterday, listened to an evangelist preach practical tips for how to become much better at doing a certain thing that everyone else in the industry. Neither the preacher, nor the small audience of 30 very bright and experienced people recommended exercise.


Wow, that’s funny.

Why didn’t I speak up? By intentionally remaining quiet, the opportunity was provided for someone else to showcase their wisdom (which most people of this caliber really enjoy doing).

Comeback 2013

What do we use to stay motivated?

In life, what do we do when we start out too strong, and feel like we can’t finish?

Same thing in a race. Back off some, regain our composure, then keep going.

Two mile combined split 13:47… the goal at this point was 14:15 (two miles at 7:15 and 7:00).

5k: 1st mile 6:39, 2nd mile 7:07


So I stopped and walked for half a minute.

What do we use to stay motivated?

Eyes always on the goal.

5k goal was sub 22:00


Breaking 22 minutes felt like victory, even though walking felt like failure.

Keep going.
