I Bought These By Mistake

In our monthly Costco Trip last month, I bought us a nice batch of grapes.

That night, I remember it being a Friday, Suzy was getting the boy’s dinner ready and part of that was to have some grapes on the side.

She informed me that she was taking the seeds out for the boys.

Seeds?!

I didn’t realize there was such a thing, since I have only eaten seedless grapes before.

Well, I am eating them nonetheless.  If it grew from Mother Earth, it’s good for you.

And the other lesson is to pay attention to the details when applicable.

Good is good enough, but remember to pay attention to the details.

Amusement During My Pedicure

A little over two weeks ago, I had my first scheduled fun day for this quarter (my goal is 6).

That is a different topic for another lesson, but part of that first fun day was going to get a pedicure.

As chance would have it, I was the only one in there along with two of the ladies that worked there.

And they were very sweet and pleasant.

Anyhow, when I got there, there was a third lady, that I presumed to be the owner.  As soon as she left, the other two started bad mouthing her, which I was doing my best to tune out.

30 minutes or so later, while the three of us were laughing about stories I was telling them about Suzy, Munch and Tank, in comes the third lady again.

Whoosh…

The energy of the room changed instantly.  The two workers became more quiet and you could sense the negative energy they felt towards this woman.  I don’t know the backstory, nor do I know any of them on any type of deeper level.

But the important point to take away is that your conversations and/or your presence, can and will change the energy of a room.

It’s up to you if that energy you create is positive or negative (hint: gossip is always negative in energy).

Member of the Month: Slick Rick

Rick came to Newell Strength Flemington after his wife, Mary, gave it a shot and liked it so much that she signed up for membership.

Rick is a busy father, husband and medical professional so for him to commit to an exercise program, he needs to know that it will be effective and efficient.

Rick has gotten so hooked that there are days he comes in twice, when his schedule allows.

Rick has been a great inspiration and hopefully his story can inspire you as well.

You can take a quick watch and listen here: https://youtu.be/SGeRkHL9Yjc

Congratulations Rick on being the March member of the month in Flemington!

The Only Fitness Quality You Should Focus ON

Your weight isn’t a fitness quality, it’s simply a measurement and a lag measurement at that.

Reaching a goal, any goal, is about focusing on the process.  The process is your lead indicator.

And funny enough, the main fitness quality you must focus on if you are to have sustained results is the same thing that I always say is our number one asset in life: ENERGY.

In today’s episode, I discuss why energy is the only thing you need to focus on in your fitness journey and why.

You can take a listen to the episode here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2019/04/30/The-Only-Fitness-Quality-You-Need-to-Focus-On

Here’s How Kids Are More Wise Than Us

About a week and a half ago, Munchie and I were taking Dax and Mateena for their morning walk.

Its something I look forward to on the days when it’s just he and I before he goes to school.

Anyway, we were about half way through the walk when I asked him what he wanted to do next; a bike ride or play with his army guys.

To which he responded, ‘Dad, I just want to take the dogs for a walk’.

Man, was I humbled.

I was trying to plan out the next hour for him and he could care less, he just wanted to be doing what he was doing.

How beautiful and how simple.

It was a great reminder for me that the only moment is the here and now.

That’s one of the great things about a great workout, you have to be in the present moment to make it through it.

This week, think of how you can have your thoughts become more child-like and report back.

An Airplane is Off Course 90% of the Time

Did you know that when you fly, the airplane is off course almost the entire time?

The pilot has to constantly reassess and course correct.

If they didn’t do this, your flight to Miami would put you out in the backwoods of Alabama or Louisiana.

Course correcting in your own life is about using lead indicators rather than lag indicators.  The goals that you set are lag indicators, the outcomes if you will.

The lead indicators are the things that you must measure daily and weekly, they are the process.  If they are constantly measured and on track, you will hit your goal.

Goals are really about processes and systems that you can win at every single day.  They are not about the event 3 months away from now, focusing that far out will only make it much more difficult to ever achieve.

The Purpose of a Goal

I can hear you already.

No, this is not the same thing as Monday’s email.

In fact, when I teach goal setting, I make a clear distinction between the goal of a goal and the purpose of a goal.

And this is another one of those things that are so simple that you may feel like it’s beneath you.  But if you are wise, you can let this be your guide whenever you are chasing a dream or goal.

So, here it is: the purpose of any goal is to increase your level of happiness.

If the goal is making you less happy, it’s the wrong goal.

Let happiness be your guide and here’s a hint, the destination isn’t what’s going to bring you happiness, it’s the process.  The human brain thrives on growth of you as a person.

Member of the Month for Hillsborough: Geoff Arlen

I can remember the first time Geoff ever came to Newell Strength back in 2012.  He came to try it out with long time member, Frank.

Geoff was busy, having his own law firm, but he was going to be getting married and wanted to be in the best shape that he could possibly be.

He achieved that and as life happens, he stopped for a period of time with us at Newell Strength.

But then, after having kid #2, Jackson, he decided that he, being an older dad, needed to make his own fitness and health a priority.

So, he started back up and he is on fire.  He makes it in at 5 or 6 am before his busy day with family and business starts.  And as you’ll see in the video, little things like playing with the kids on the floor and then getting up, 20 times per night, have become easy.

That’s what it’s all about!

You can check Geoff’s video out here: https://youtu.be/u8GqEDm8TcU 

Keep inspiring Geoff!

What I do When I am Having a Bad Day

About a month ago, a friend of mine and client of Newell Strength, came into the office and asked me if I could do a podcast on what I do when I am having a bad day.

So, that’s what I cover in today’s podcast.

We all have bad days, the key is to manage them, change your state as quick as possible and not allow them to bleed over into the next day.

You can take a listen to today’s episode in under 12 minutes right here: http://kylenewell.com/podcast/what-to-do-when-…having-a-bad-day/

Learn to manage your confidence and you’ll be just fine.

The Goal of a Goal

Way back when I started a lawn cutting business with my brothers, back when I was 11 years old, I started setting goals.

That later carried on over to sports and athletics.

And it’s been something I’ve been committed to in all areas of my life since adulthood, tweaking and refining the system of course, but nevertheless, setting goals and measuring progress.

Which brings me to my point for today’s email.

The goal is to keep the goal, the goal.

Read that again, because I think the simplicity of it causes people to shun it.

Whenever that bright shiny object starts to tempt you, remember the goal of a goal.
