After waking up, each day has looked like this, in no particular order:
- cup of cafe latte
- 15min barefoot run on the beach
- mahi-mahi tacos (fresh fresh fresh)
- For time: climb 30′ palm tree
- CrossFit WOD on beach
- eat some fruit
- jump off 35′ waterfalls
- ride 12 zip lines from 1000′ above sea level
- beach sprint intervals
- trail running in the mountains
While I resisted a vacation initially, the time spent down here has been a creative catalyst for the direction of CrossFit San Mateo as well as where/how I want to live my life. There always seems to be a million things going on. My good friend Tim Dymmel, owner of CrossFit Palo Alto, has a recent post regarding Perpetual Motion.
The lesson I came away with from his post was this: despite indecision in direction, always keep moving. Tim and I share many qualities and one of the biggest is lack of time. How do you maximize time spent on the important tasks, with the intent of moving toward one’s goals, while also maximizing the things that make life worth pursuing? In many regards, it’s a good argument for the 4HWW life model (4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss). Above all else, my trip to Costa Rica has solidified my larger goal; an automated income system(s). With the hustle and bustle, constant grind of the athlete/biz owner/father life, I had almost lost site of it!
Going back to Dymmel’s post, often enough we get caught up in the “right direction.” Often times we have many options to choose from in business and in life, all of which can seem like the right direction! So, what is the right direction? While taking time to reflect is always important, don’t stall. If, D). All of the above, is a viable option, pick one and start moving. Always keep moving in the direction of your dreams. Sometimes I’ve also felt that the decisions I’ve made may not have been the best. Nonetheless, I stay on my grind. I once heard a great quote, “Fate rewards those who are prepared.” Identify your goals, work hard and never stop moving.
In the mean time….
