How to Master Your Time

I remember a note my dad left me about 10 years ago.

It read, ‘K, you’ve accomplished more in the past year than most can do in a decade.  I am proud of you.  And if you have time, show me how you did it. Love-Dad’.

Well, I did it out of necessity.  I created intense time pressure around everything I did because I had no other option.

At the time, I was till actively competing in bodybuilding, I was just getting Newell Strength to a growth point and I was teaching full time.

In today’s episode, I give you some tips on how I did ‘it’ and some time mastery tips that you can swipe and begin to use straight away.

How Would You Like to Win $10K?

6 Years ago, I decided to run our first ever ‘Fat Shredder’ contest.

It was a ton of fun, people lost a lot of weight and some of those people are still members, 6 years later!

Since that time, we’ve continued to refine the Fat Shredder contest. This year’s is going to be the best ever, guaranteed.

Here are some of the highlights to come:

● There is going to be a $10,000 cash prize. $9K of which will go to the winning team, and $500 each to the top woman and man competitors.

● You will have extra accountability because of your two teammates and weekly check-ins with the Coaches. This is perfect for those of you that keep putting off your fat loss efforts because, quite frankly, no one is holding you to the fire.

● A specific nutrition plan, printed out and customized to fit your starting body composition, created by our nutrition expert, Coach Dana.

● This will take you right up to Memorial Day weekend, so when the summer arrives, you will feel extra confident when it comes time for the beach and summer BBQs.

● You will be a part of the private Fat Shredder FB group, in which you will get further accountability and 3, super secret and cool fat loss tips each week.

● Competition, in a friendly atmosphere, brings out the best in people. Imagine what it will be like each week checking in and seeing your team climb the leaderboard.

Yours Is Bigger Than Mine

Back to the movie I was talking about yesterday….

They have a scene in which the main character gets a brain scan and they find out that his amygdala is very ‘quiet’.

In case you haven’t been exposed to Mind Mapping yet, the amygdala is part of your reptilian brain that is always scanning your environment for threats.

Alex’s amygdala needs an extreme amount of threat to ‘light up’.

Is this nature or nurture?

Probably a bit of both, but I can tell you that I believe I have tamed my amygdala over the years by exposing myself to high risk journeys and practicing meditation.

The more you are exposed to something, the less frightening it is.  And meditation helps you become aware of when you are thinking emotionally and irrationally.

Don’t avoid the edge of your comfort zone, learn how to expand your comfort zone.

If you are always living at capacity, any little thing can make your amygdala sound the alarms.  In this case, it’s not good to have a ‘bigger’ one (more active:)).

Have You Seen This?

Two Sundays ago, Devon and I watched the movie, Free Solo.

And the funny thing is, my palms were sweating from the get go, literally.

It’s about a man, who has a dream of attempting to climb a 3,000 foot summit, straight up, with no safety ropes or none of that.

Now, not saying that you have to have ambitions to do that, but it should be a lesson to us all that we greatly underestimate what we are capable of.

When it comes to human achievement, impossible is just a concept that you’ve bought into.

Yes, the journey will be hard.

Yes, it will be full of struggles, but it will be worth it.

Check out the movie and remember, inspiration can be found anywhere.

Member Showcase: Bob the Bullet

I first got to know Bob back in 1991.

Bob, aka Bullet, Coached me and his son Casey (my good friend) and my brothers along with my dad, in various sports.

Bob began coming to Newell Strength a few years back to prep for a knee replacement, which he made look like a breeze!

And the Bullet is 70 years young!  That should be an inspiration to anyone who thinks they are beyond picking up strength training.

Here he is in his own words

Empty Your Mug

A few weeks ago I recorded this podcast and funny enough, it is right in line with what I was writing to you about yesterday.

In life, you must have principles that you live by.

Otherwise life will toss you whichever way it wants, like a plastic bag out on the street on a windy day.

‘Emptying the mug’ is one of the principles that I live by.

In today’s episode, I give you a few pointers on how and why I believe you should be practicing this.

Your Mind is Like Parachute

Imagine jumping out of a plane, 10,000 feet up in the air.

Your security is your parachute pack.

And your parachute can only work if its open, much like your mind.

When you have a closed mind, you will not learn anything.

An open mind allows you to create and creating is the real key to learning, making your own connections.

Always practice emptying your cup.

Progress, Not Perfection

 

Today, time is precious for me.  I have four, 20-minute work blocks spaced out by five minute breaks in between.

Years ago, I would have panicked, feeling like today was a loss.

But not any more.  Today is chance to ‘move the chains’.

This is a football analogy in case you aren’t familiar with the term.

 

Life isn’t about the hail mary highlight, it’s about moving the chains one foot at a time.

Today, I am going to move the chains through 80 minutes of focused work.

And that all ties in to the idea of progress, not perfection.

Perfection is F.E.A.R disguised as a noble thing.  Perfection doesn’t exist.

Perfection the fear that tells you that others may judge you since what you are ‘putting out there’ isn’t good enough, yet.

I got news for ya, it’s never going to be perfect.  But good is good enough.

In life, you have ideas, some are good, some are bad.  But when a worthy idea ‘sticks’, we must move forward with the idea of progress in our head and hearts.

Take the first step.  Move the chains a couple of yards today.

At the end of a week, a month, a few months, a year or even a few years, you will have been up and down that field of life so many times, all through the scope of daily progress.

Whether you are working on your body, your mind or your spirit, apply the concept of progress, not perfection.

You got this.

How do You Take Care of Your Heart?

When I was a young boy, 10 or 11 years old, I had to wear this heart rate device with electrodes all over me.  The heart specialist had thought in my exam that it was worth the precaution.  For a young kid, that is a scary thing.

It turned out to be nothing too serious, but I have always taken an interest in studying heart health since that point.

We must take care of our heart’s both physically and from a love perspective.

From the physical, realize that the more muscle you work, the more cardio work you get.  The muscular system drives the cardiovascular system.  Armed with that knowledge, would you get more ‘cardio’ out of doing 20 minutes on the elliptical at an easy pace or 4 sets of pushups paired with goblet squat or a relatively (to you) heavy weight?

From the love side, you must appreciate.  What you appreciate, appreciates.  Discipline exists but only in the scope of love.  If you are doing something for someone or something you love, discipline seems to be infinite.

If you don’t love the thing, will power comes into play and we all know how that ends up.

All religions are focused on being in the present moment.  If you fail to be in the present moment, your ability to love life is greatly diminished.  If you energy is scattered, if your mind is in two places at once, then you cannot unleash the full power of your spirit.

Member Showcase: Pax Fox, aka Splinter

Pat came to us back in October after seeing the changes that GL had been making over the prior year.

When he came in, he had a lot of the ingrained misconceptions that so many people have about having to eat low carb, do a lot of cardio and on it goes.

If you had asked him at that time, he would have told you that a fitness cwas a necessary evil.

And would you believe it; now he has a blast in his sessions and he has been making steady forward progress week after week.  To date, Pat is down 40 or so pounds.

Here he is in his own words telling you what the journey has been like so far.
