A new decade is underway, let's get down to brass tacks.
There is so much noise in the market it can be damn near impossible to isolate meaningful pieces of information when it comes to personal growth, performance, and mind-body fitness. This makes it difficult to identify and take meaningful actions that move the needle toward progress.
- You try what you see someone else doing.
- You do what you have always done (and get the same results).
- You do nothing because there’s so much to do, it’s just too intimidating to start.
While this message could devolve into the imploration: Do meaningful things. That’s not where I’m going. I’d much rather, at the start of a new year here, focus on filters for identifying and implementing meaningful things. The ‘teach a person to fish’ type of shit.
- What moves the needle?
- What can I execute in my worst week?
Let’s take fitness as an example here, though for most of us the health and happiness equation is more complex, as is my approach to mind-body training. But in the case of fitness alone, most people hit that standards wall, which could be anything from 10 lbs overweight to 150 lbs or more overweight.
