Have you done your pushups? Did you get a good night’s sleep?
Are you eating right – is your life right and tight, is your mindset locked on performance at your best, are you giving yourself a chance to be better than you’ve ever been …?
Yesterday is gone. You only have today. And, how many tomorrows? Ask, what is my goal, where am I going? What’s your goal? I know, it’s Friday morning, restful weekend planned … that will come, and go. But what about your goal?
If we were athletes, training, we’d get up early, do push-ups, have a plan, a routine – careful focused on every morsel consumed, every step taken, every thought playing over in our minds – focused on one goal, one objective …
It isn’t anyone else’s goal, is it?
Do your pushups.
p.s.: to Calgarians on this mailing who are Toastmasters – if you forgot or weren’t notified - we are having a ‘farewell party’ on Saturday evening for Molly Strickland who is retiring after twenty-eight years in Toastmasters – please let me know if you can come/contact me for details at: firstname.lastname@example.org . Speeches, fun, visiting and refreshments for less than the cost of a movie ticket and popcorn … a great way to spend Saturday evening, visit with old friends (young ones too!)

morning walk: -6C/20F, calm and mostly clear – traffic building, some snow left but it won’t last the day. An early start, time is wasting and I need to sprint to an early meeting, and two more to round out the day. I like it that way. Gusta’s not as fond – but she accepted my promise of more, later.
Looking forward to the “evolution” Mark. You write about a conundrum which is becoming surprisingly common, not only for those of us who are “single-ish”, but even those in committed relationships. We have a bad habit of over-committing on so many different levels. I find that if I keep in mind “what do I do to allow me to do everything else” (fitness, faith, chores, etc.), it allows me to prioritize and focus. Great read today. Cheers, RA, Calgary, AB
