“Dude, you is crazy”.
Hardly a day goes by where I don’t feel misunderstood.
Yesterday brought that home more powerfully than usual.
It could be the pressure of the approaching deadlines:
- August 1 – I fly to Helsinki.
- August 4 – I run the first of three possible 400 meter heats
What if I don’t make it to the semi-finals?
I certainly don’t expect to make it to the finals, but the semi’s, absolutely.
And as a reminder, even though I don’t expect to make it to the finals, that is still the goal.
Because it’s impossible.
Many people I think, rarely, if ever, as an adult, attempt impossible goals.
Because of this, if you are a person who is chasing an impossible goal, your focus, your thinking, your actions, the pressure – it’s very different than normal, everyday type of behavior.
It has to be.
This experience has exposed me to, and taught me, so many things on so many different levels, that I can’t even begin to describe it.
So anyway, I’ll just leave it at that for now.
Make it a great day, because if you don’t, who will. Remember, I’d rather try and fail, than live with the regret of not knowing. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
