The Next Step not all steps


What you tell yourself has more power to affect your future then the things that are happening to you everyday.

I love the movie The Martian because the main character Mark Watney had every chance to say that’s it I’m done, I can’t take another setback. He doesn’t worry about everything he has to overcome but instead he only focuses on what’s next.

You don’t have to focus on everything, just what’s next, what do you have to do right now to make the next step in life.  You can’t walk a mile unless you walk the first 3 feet.

First day to decide how your life is going to go.


I consider Sunday the first day of the week, which is the perfect time decide how we are going to live the rest of the week.

We will all have challenges in the up coming week and if we decide NOW that we are going to take those challenges head on with a great attitude those challenges may still be tough but will be much easier to deal with.

Consistency in small changes.


What are you going to choose today?

Making little changes to your daily routine is what is needed to make big changes to your life.

But its not only the little changes that are needed, it is consistency in those repetitive sometimes boring little actions that bring true change.

The small consistent changes overtime will compound into the results that we get.

If we make bad choices it compounds in too bad results, but if we make good choices it will compound into good results.

SO… what are you going to choose today?

Heart-rate Monitor while lifting weights?

From Men’s Health:

I do intervals and lift weights. Would it be smart to use a heart-rat monitor?

More like brilliant. “Most men (people) don’t know their bodies very well. They think they’re going all out, but they’re not,” says David Jack, general manager at Competitive Athlete Training Zone. “A heart-rate monitor tells you exactly how hard you’re going.” That’s critical whether you’re hammering out intervals or doing strength training. For instance, short intervals are best done at 90% of your Max heart rate and heavy lifts at 60% of your Max, says Jack.
