Ten Thoughts On Ten Subjects In Ten Words Or Less

I really enjoyed the challenge of getting as much across in as little writing as possible with my first version of Ten Thoughts. After some long winded blog posts over the weeks I figured there is no better time to give it another shot. So here we go and I thought I would start with an unofficial thought regarding this post.

Make ten words or less very difficult.

Had to get that off my chest.

1. Self Myofascial Release
    Melt your tissue don't just smash it. No heroics necessary.

2. On Being A Trainer
    Married to my job but a great marriage it is.

3. Breathing
    Core and thoracic control have me rethinking stretching. A lot.

4. The Internet
    Don't let Facebook posts define your decision making.

5. Politics
    Too much politics in politics these days.

6. Work
    You get paid for done. Paid more for done well.

7. Workouts
    Can't all be gems. Accept it and redeem it.

8. Materialism
    What you do defines you. Not just what you have.

9. Willpower
    Overrated. Nothing without clarity, passion, and enjoyment.

10. Results
      Live and love the process. Results take care of themselves.

Another one down and I don't think I broke the rules. However, I believe that number 9 may be open for discussion. What do you think? Is willpower something that has gotten you to where you want to be or was it something deeper? I am in the middle of one of the most thought altering books that I have ever read. Stillpower: The Inner Source of Athletic Excellence is a book written by sports psychologist Garret Kramer and all I can say is that it is a must read. 

To my fellow Canadians have a great Thanksgiving long weekend and I also wanted to give a big congratulations to my sister Jana for slugging it out and graduating yesterday with her Masters in Marine Biology. No easy feat by any means so enjoy it! You earned it.

All the best
