Happy Monday after another beautiful weekend here in the northeast, where the weather finally seems to be turning into summer after an extremely rainy spring.
That being said, here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts, cruising social media and any other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- Alan Bishop on Twitter this past week; “99% of training results come from working hard, eating clean, sleeping, hydrating and consistency. It isn’t sexy, but it works.” YUP!
- All the recovery stuff in the world won’t make a bit of difference if sleep and nutrition aren’t in order. Take care of that low hanging fruit before you worry about all the fancy stuff.
- The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks. – Mark Zuckerberg. Don’t be afraid to take a risk every now and again, even if you fail – you don’t want to make failure a regular thing, but on the other hand there is nothing wrong with taking risks and failing every once in a while.
- If you don’t look back at your program from a couple years ago and roll your eyes at something that you were doing, then you probably need to reassess your continuing education. I look back at programs from 2-3 years ago and wonder what I was thinking all the time – not necessarily on the big rock things or the overall philosophy, but certainly on some of the smaller accessory type stuff.
