Part 2……Touching The Void

Yesterdays email seemed to stir a few people into action which is good.
Decisions to start training, get on the 19 Day Plan or just to meet with me to discuss a plan of action.
Going back to Touching the Void.  Joe Simpson spent three days without food and with almost no water, crawling and hopping five miles down a mountain back to their base camp.  How did he do it?
As well as making a decisions, he chose rocks and things he could see.  He would time himself getting to those objects.
Setting small manageable goals.
Weight loss, health, getting trim, lifting more weight.  These are the same.  This is the outcome you want.
Rather than look at the enormity of the task in hand its much better to set small manageable goals to get to that outcome.
You’re not going to get it right every time, but it doesn’t matter as long as that decision making process is still in place.
So, set a goal, or an outcome you want.  THEN set small manageable goals.
And from yesterdays email:
“You gotta make decisions, even if they’re wrong decisions. If you don’t make decisions, you’re stuffed.”
Kettlebells tomorrow then I’m off for some down time with the family at Point to Point Horse Racing in the Easters.
Have a good weekend.
