Straight Talk About Training and Getting More Done

Today's training was inspired by the following quote.

"One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again." – Abraham Maslow

Get out of your comfort zone.

My workout: Squats, depth jumps, switch lunges, kb swings, leg curls.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
You are tougher than anything in your way.

"Here's what it all comes down to in the end: Choice. Your choice, and not someone else's choice for you. You can choose to adopt beliefs that empower you rather than simply inherit or accept beliefs that entrap you." – Ryan Murdock

"These days, the pace is such that it's nearly impossible to have a fully balance life. Rather than talking about balance, we should focus on achieving integrity in our lives – meaning the capacity to be the same person at home and at work – in your personal life, in your family, and in your community. If you can maintain that sense of integrity, you can nurture each element of your life. Then it becomes about how you take care of yourself – mind, body and spirit – and what you do to nurture yourself as well as making sure that you're taking care of the people in your life who are important to you." – Bill George

And some advice on how to beat an old nemesis

BTW, people always ask me how to get more done. Here's the answer:

Wake up early. Almost every problem can be solved by getting up earlier. And avoid checking email as much as possible. Block your time. Set deadlines. Work hard. Get ruthless. Oh, and expect this to suck.

You really didn't think it was going to be easy, did you?

PS - Great quote here...

"Leadership is about serving other people. It's not about other people serving you. The irony is that the more power one accumulates, the less it should be used" – Bill George
