Short vs long term

USATF website welcome page
USATF = United States Track and Field.

The two main differences between a short-term and long-term dream:

  • the length of time needed to be successful
  • the level of determination expended to be successful

Insight: Reaching a short-term goal (say running a 10k) is one thing. Staying vibrantly active for a lifetime (long-term goal) is another.

We often get blinded by short-term success. But we should see the blindness coming before we even begin.

Lead thy self

Great comeback week

Glacier Red Bus Tour
Zooming out from previous photo. Context for location and customer experience.

Great comeback week.

Three 80+ minute workouts this week.

All three included 15 minutes of cool down stretching.

While remaining flexible over the years, flexibility has received the least amount of focus in recent years.

Like the three little pigs, there are four layers:

  1. Inflexible
  2. Barely flexible
  3. Moderately flexible
  4. Excellently flexible

Additional analogies…

Poverty, lower class, middle class, upper class.

Clueless, beginner, moderate, expert.

Covid-19.

Our preparation and tolerance for the unexpected is being revealed as we speak.

Congrats on earning an A+.

Wisdom what?

We are gonna miss Sam, the self-walking dog.

Wisdom what?

Four wisdom teeth.

Removed yesterday by noon.

At 19, he got it done based on professional recommendation.

Oddly, i still have all four wisdom teeth.

Skipped yesterday’s scheduled workout to accommodate for dental appointment.

Looking forward to this morning’s makeup session.

The real wisdom in this post is the daily, personal example of being a noticer (student) one day and a teacher the next, until it gets so blurred that you one day focus and realize – you are both, all day everyday.

Greater than kindness?

Fall hiking in Glacier
Hiking through Glacier National Park as a 60-year old is something i take for granted because i never see 60 as a thing that limits people, but people tell me i’m wrong.

How well do you practice kindness?

There is no greater wisdom than kindness.

Or is there?

What about physical health as the greatest wisdom?

Maybe decent physical health is the greatest wisdom we can practice.

So many people benefit from a person’s physical wellbeing. Obviously the healthy person, but also the potential care giver(s) and financial resources that are protected from healthcare services.
