Today I felt even better than yesterday. If I could shake the congestion I'd be a much happier man right now.
I had a great afternoon teaching chess to about 35 elementary school aged children. It is something new I am doing and I have alot of work to do to figure it out the way I want it to work. I had a great time, but more importantly, the children seemed to have a great time too.
Nutrition today was good. I drank alot of water as usual.
I went to a youth baseball game tonight. That was interesting. The team I was there to see came back in the top of the final inning to win 4-3. They were down 3-0 when the pitcher hit a 3 run homer. They tacked on one more run and managed to shut down their opponents in the final half of the inning to win what seemed like a lost game.
This got me thinking about things. We work week after week to produce results. We analyze those results. When a single week looks like a problem we change things up. Perhaps that's the wrong approach? Perhaps we need to stick it out for a longer period of time before making changes? Consistency is the key to success and I don't see how we can be consistent by continually changing things up.

Thought for the Day:
Consistency can be killed by panic. Panic is caused by overanalysis. Overanalysis should be avoided at all costs.
Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
