You’re Going To Die… Don’t Wait!

I’m currently reading “Tool of Titans” by Tim Ferris. Awesome book. Get it and read it, you’ll be glad you did. It’ll probably take you a year to read, the thing is a monster, 600+ pages. Or maybe I’m just a slow reader. In any event, it’s worth the time investment.   The Tail End In the book, Tim references a blog post titled, “The Tail End“. It provides a visual perspective of how much time we have left to live (assuming a lifespan of 90 years) that is so in your face and real it’s crazy. In the post, Tim Urban (the writer) breaks down how many super bowls and winters he has left to enjoy. How many more books he’ll have a chance to read. Days left remaining to spend with family and friends. And several other events along with how much time left to experience each one.   How... read more

Two Ways To Help Assure You Have A Healthy & Succussful Week Ahead

On a scale from 1 to 10 where 1 equals horrible and 10 equals awesome…. How would you rank your week so far? Wait a sec, that’s not a very good question since you’re probably wondering, “what am I ranking?“ Great question – let’s try this again. How would you rank your week in regards to your weekly nutrition and exercise commitments?   How I Rank Myself Weekly For example, my weekly “can’t miss” nutritional commitments are eat breakfast, drink a minimum of 64 ounces of water, and have lots of veggies at dinner. My weekly “can’t miss” exercise commitments are workout at the gym Monday thru Friday and then go play beach volleyball on Saturday. This is the criteria I use to rank how successful my week was from a nutrition and exercise standpoint.   What Criteria Do You Use? Do you have weekly nutrition and exercise commitments... read more

How Do You Challenge Yourself?

What is the greatest physical challenge you have willingly taken on to date and accomplished? How about mentally, what’s challenged you most to date? Is what challenged you most physically also what challenged you most mentally? You ever wonder that? I’ve been giving this lots of thought lately.   Big Challenges My most physical and mental challenges to date are two different experiences.  My toughest mental challenge to date has been my ultra marathon (running 50 miles). My toughest physical challenge to date has been training for a men’s physique competition. The mental challenge lasted 10 hours. The physical challenge lasted 12 weeks. Yet one no easier than the other.   Would You Do It Again? I then asked myself, if I knew then what I know now about how difficult these two challenges would be, how much they’d push me and test my limits, would I still have... read more

How To Become A Morning Person, Increase Your Energy, Double Productivity, & Never Miss Another Workout Again

You ever wonder what makes someone a “morning person“? Why some people consider themselves “morning people” and others do not? I use to always wonder that. I mean, is it a unique trait some are born with? Being a morning person myself, I’ve often asked myself…   What Makes Me A Morning Person? The answer I discovered ended up being much simpler than I though it was. I’m a morning person because I choose to be. I’d like to think there’s a unique trait I was born with but nope, not the case. I’m a morning person because that’s who I’ve decided to be. Those who don’t consider themselves morning people aren’t morning people because that’s who they’ve decided they are not. It makes sense to me, how about you? If I tell myself I’m lazy, a procrastinator, and always late… guess what kind of person I’ll be? I’ll... read more

How To Identify & Squash Limiting Beliefs Holding You Back From Feeling Healthy, Losing Weight, And Being Successful

The new year is here and in full swing. I’m curious, how you doing on your goals and commitments? Me, well… not so good. My goal of daily meditation started off strong. Unfortunately, a bad cold has gotten the best of me. And now, I’m off track big-time.   Disappointed? Of course. Am I discouraged? Heck no. I’m not going spend my time and energy focusing on the fact that I got off track. Instead, I will focus all of my energy on getting back on track and remaining there. And I encourage you to do the same. If for whatever reason you’ve gotten off track from your goals already, don’t sweat it. Focus on getting back on track immediately. It’s not about how many times we fall, it’s about how many times we get back up. I’ve already seen several posts and videos this week poking fun at gym... read more
