Don’t let Friday stop your momentum

It’s Friday.  Time to recognize the work you put in during the week.  We’ve been getting up early, staying up late, running to kids events, going to meetings, working out, and hopefully meditating, reading, journaling, and bettering ourselves. Don’t let Friday stop the momentum.  Celebrate that you may not need to do some of the…

Sleep – I don’t get it

I get it.  Sleep is important.  It’s very important.  A good night’s sleep will make the day that much better.  It will make our workouts infinitely better.  We have more patience, we make better dietary choice, we make better moral choices.  We tend to be overall better people when we get a good night’s sleep….

Guide your thoughts 

You are in control of your frame of reference. Take the time to think about how you can frame things that happen in a way to guide you forward vs holding you back. 

Get comfortable being uncomfortable

It’s one of the best pieces of advice I’ve heard in a long time.  This past weekend I just completed another Spartan Race.  I feel silly for how much I enjoy these races.  And it is like a giant playground for adults.  A place where you get to climb tall things, carry heavy objects, crawl…

Find your North Star

It’s easy to skate through life.  Get lost in the pattern and routine of day to day life.  Your life isn’t meant to live in the mundane.  It’s not something to be lived in the predictable.  In order to find a true direction in this life it’s important to find that North Star.  Like the…

It’s always important to take a step back and strategize, set goals, prioritize and figure out what you value, where you are and where you want to go.  Those things are very very important and shouldn’t be minimized.  The trap I’ve always fallen into is taking action on the low hanging fruit and putting off…

What if you were a stock?

Had lunch today with a good friend of mine.  He brought the idea to me of thinking about one another as a stock.  If either of us were a stock and we went public and people had a chance to invest in you would you be a good stock pick?  We could get into investments…

What I learned from The Four Hour Work Week

About 4 years ago is when I first actually sat down and read the book by Tim Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek.  At that point in my life I was making doing pretty well in my business and had a little walk around money.  This book was revolutionary for me.  I had never considered the possibility of…

Always work to be better

Remember that in our toughest times we will fall back to what our level of training is at that moment.  This includes during competition, business, and life.  In those toughest times, make your level of training constantly be at higher level so when you fall in those moments your landing place is higher than it…

Significance Over Safety

Dr. Dan Diamond is a medical doctor from the local community here in Kitsap County, WA.  He’s the first person I’ve had the opportunity to interact with that has done a TED talk.  Naturally, I was intrigued, as I love TED talks and listen to them often.  Dr. Dan practices medicine locally.  In fact he…
