Hi Team...

You ever have one of those nights where you have so much on your mind that you play mental ping pong for a good hour before finally crashing?

That was my night last night.

I have so many things going on- all very exciting.

From The Champions-30 Health Reset & Weight-Loss Program starting tomorrow to the start of "cow" season up at our farm, to just a lot of other projects I am working on....oh yeah, and most importantly, my coaching clients and thinking about where each one of them are at on their journey...

I am sure you can relate....

So, this morning I got up early, came downstairs and pulled out my marble notebook...

I got this idea of using the marble notebook from the CEO of Under Armour, Kevin Plank. I went to his office years ago and he whipped out his marble notebook and starting writing down ACTIONS.

This morning, that is exactly what I did...

I drew out 2-columns.... with an arrow in between them...

Column 1: Objective

Column 2: Action

Translation... this is what I want to achieve, this is how I am going to do it...

That becomes my plan....

Then, all I have to do is execute.

That is where I am right now.... execution phase.

I told myself this AM: Go out and WIN Today.... win by executing the plan.

Too often we get stuck in our heads because we do not get the thoughts into an action plan....

It is so important to create links, linear progressions that take us from thought/ idea/ objective to action..

If we do not get to action, we will never get done what we need to get done...

Say you are wanting to lose 5lbs....

Objective: 5lbs...

Action: Join Champions-30 (starts tomorrow) 

Critical Action: Register here.

In that simple progression, you went from what you wanted to do or achieve to the action of joining something that will get you to your result if you do the work.

Everything works this way..

It is our job to separate the emotions from the actions....

Because it is our emotions that will hijack our performances...

We can not have that...

Got it?

Today I want you to get clear... really clear.

Get so clear that your mind goes quickly from identification of your objective to action..

It is a trained response, much like being emotional about decisions is a trained response.

Let's go...

Make it happen...

And, we have only 2-spots left for our first Champions-30 Camp... if you are serious about your health and getting into peak shape, I hope you choose to join us.

Join here.

Kickoff is tomorrow at 11am est!

Lets go!

Your Coach,
