Nice to meet you too! Haha I was going to run this morning anyway, so I thought why not just join in for the session for a change (as opposed to getting more of Tom Bilyeu ????).
I haven’t really dug deeper into Jocko Willink’s stuff yet, but I’ve heard his presentation about extreme ownership – that is super powerful!
My biggest takeaways from Goggin’s book was the idea of being raw and real to yourself, asking “No BS, what would it take”… and really meaning it!
I think these days we tend to start with grand visions and big goals for the sake of “dreaming big”, but often don’t have a real action plan on achieving it. But when we look them it in a real “No BS” manner, and break that goal down – it becomes very evident that some things gotta change drastically and immediately for the goal to be achieved.
… and then it comes down to whether you are willing to pay the price and take that action.
If not, then be real with yourself and change the goal, or change the timeline on that goal (and be ok with that!)
Like if I really wanted to run 10km everyday and complete another 1000km this year, the first thing I gotta set out is the time to do it. I know for a fact that the run and the cooling down and shower after takes me at least 1.5 – 2 hours a day.
Knowing that, and knowing that I will need to be ready for my kid at 7:30 am for breakfast and to send her off to school, I really had to work backwards and wake up at 5am… which means I have to sleep early… which means I have to be willing to give up on all the late night Netflixing and Facebooking which I used to do.
Haha.. that sounded fair for me, I paid the price and realised I’m not losing out much afterall. ????
