Are You a Human Doing?

Years ago, probably 16 of them or so, I remember one of the cooks at my dad’s restaurant pulling me aside to tell me he knew I would go on to impact a lot of people.

It wasn’t the first time someone had told me that, but it did strike me as odd since at the time I was just competing in bodybuilding and working as a waiter.

Looking back on it, people like Mark (the cook), saw how I did everything the same way, with energy, focus and passion.  Dealing with people, my nutrition, my training and so on.

I tell you this not to toot my horn but because it is a good illustration that we are human BEINGS, not human DOINGS.

Don’t get caught up in your to do lists and just being busy all the time.  Why not make a ‘who you want to be’ list?

There is more to life than simply increasing the speed of it.

Systems Trump Goals

Tomorrow, I am putting on a workshop for the clients of Newell Strength.  The topic: goal setting.

But I don’t teach it in the way that most people think of goals.

Think about it, are people’s percentage of reaching goals positive or negative?

Negative and that’s because they don’t understand the mechanics of a goal.

In today’s podcast, I dive in and deliver 11 minutes of goal oriented wisdom.

You Should Never Do This..

A few weeks ago I had the rare chance to wear a necktie.

We were down at our friend’s wedding in Florida and that meant it was time for me to get all snazzy for Suzy.

When we came back, I decided that I should wash the tie for one reason or another.  And then, I put it in the drier.

Now, I am not sure which did more damage, but let’s just say that the tie now looks like a 3-foot long twizzler.

I am not a dry-cleaner or expert by any means when it comes to cleaning fancy clothes.

Thus, I should not try to clean them.

Just as you shouldn’t try to write your own fitness plan to address all the things you may need to work on (hint, fat loss isn’t the only thing) nor should you try to hold yourself accountable, especially if you have tried and failed, tried and failed.

That’s where we can help.  Just reply to this email and I’ll be in touch to see how we can help.

Consistency or Convenience?

Consistency, convenience and commitment.

Out of these 3 words, which one doesn’t belong?

If you said convenience, you were right.

The key to success is being committed to consistency.

Sometimes, the last thing I want to do is sit down to write 1,000 words, but it doesn’t matter because I committed to being consistent.

Now, if you are only doing things when you feel like it or the mood is right, aka when they are convenient, then guess what?

You are going to get convenient results.

That’s the way most people live.  But you aren’t most people.

If you would like to find out more about the mindset of commitment, just reply with ‘commit’ and I will help you out.

Perfect Procrastination

I realized in 1997, when I used to shoot 500 jump shots per day that perfect didn’t exist.

I would take 25 shots per round and sometimes I would get hot and maybe hit 21 or 22 but 25 of 25 didn’t happen.

I wasn’t trying to be perfect, I was just trying to get better.

And that is the approach we believe in at Newell Strength.

Perfection often masquerades around as procrastination.

Listen up: imperfect action beats procrastination any day of the week.

In life, good is good enough.

Start your journey today.

Winning With Water and Walks

  • January 2, 2019
  • Brain

The other day, on New Year’s Eve, to be exact, I was recording a podcast for Unlocking Your Inner Strength on goal setting.

 

It seems to be the universal time to focus in on a new direction.  Yet, most people are taught the completely wrong way to set goals.

 

Goals leave people feeling like a loser or like a deflated balloon.  A loser on the way up because of lack of being ‘there’ and a deflated balloon on the way down because of so much focus being spent on the end result the whole journey.

 

Anyhow, that’s neither here nor there, if you want, go back and listen to episode 136 of Unlocking Your Inner Strength.

 

Assuming that you have set some targets for the first 90-day block of 2019, you are still going to have to figure out how to build momentum.  Momentum is another greatly misunderstood concept for most people.

 

Momentum is built one inch at a time, not by throwing a 99-yard Hail Mary pass.  Being early in the New Year, you may be gung-ho about achieving these new goals of yours and you may think that means that you need to get up 90 minutes earlier and do 10X what you did last year.

 

If that is your approach, then good luck.

 

What we need, is something easy, to get help release the drag and to help us gain some forward momentum.

 

Get ready, because I have the solution: being exposed to water and going for a walk.  Didn’t that just completely blow your mind?!

 

Don’t blow it off because it seems so simple.

 

I did it this morning and it works, every single time.  Going for a walk helps to bring extreme mental clarity.  I believe this is because of the growth factors that can only cross into the blood force of the brain through physical movement, in conjunction with the fact that walking is the only form of exercise to lower levels of the stress hormones.

 

Combine these two things and you have a lot of ‘a-ha’ moments in just a short walk.

 

Being near water has always calmed me and helped me to be more creative.  I believe that being exposed to the noise of water along with being near the different protons and neutrons of water help us to be more creative.

 

If you live near some type of body of water, that’s great, go for a 10-minute walk there every morning.

 

If you don’t live near a body of water, walk then shower or vice-versa.

 

Lastly, now that you have built up some momentum, make sure you don’t waste it on frivolous activity.  For years, I have used timed working blocks.  As I am writing this today, I am working with eight, 20-minute blocks, with a five-minute break after each round.

 

If you are one of the rare individuals that is willing to build momentum, day in and day out (momentum is much like will power, there is a fresh start every day), then you need to take advantage and I have found nothing that even comes close to creating urgency like intense time pressure.

 

Work will expand to fill the time you allow for it.  Keep it tight and keep it right.




I Can Really Bring Out the Weird In People

Two weeks ago, the men’s group from Newell Strength went out for a bite to eat.

And at the table, in the course of riveting conversation, one of the guys says, ‘Man, you can really bring the weird out in people’.

I chuckled as did all the others.

It was one of the greatest compliments anyone could give me.  By being weird and not hiding it, I hope that others can let their guard down too.

How exciting and interesting is life if you are only surrounded by a bunch of zombies and robots, people that are always trying to ride the road of vanilla?

The theme for this year is not to be more than you are, just BE all that you already are.

If you’re ready to have a Mind Map about your weirdness, just reply with ‘weird’ and I’ll be glad to give you a session.

Can You Be More Confident?

Well, it’s a New Year and to BE all that you are (not more than you are) is going to require confidence.

And in this episode, I can guarantee that you will learn something new about confidence that you’ve never been told before.

New Year, New You?

365 days ago, you had a vision of what this past year would look like.

It’s a very common thing and it’s great to get a fresh start.

Yet, if you continue to do the same thing year after year and keep winding up in the same place, then that’s the equivalent of riding a stationary bike 10,000 miles.

You could have traveled around the world on a regular bike but yet you chose to stay put.  Did you actually have 10,000 miles of experience?

Make a list of your frustrations from this past year and then put together a bullet point list of an action plan on how those same frustrations won’t happen again this year.

New frustrations are fine.  But to continue to relive old frustrations is a fools game.

If you’re ready to finally make a change, just reply to this email with ‘now’ and I’ll be glad to do a Mind Map with you.
