What's The Destination?

I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off these last few weeks. 

What is typically a quiet time of year in the gym has been our busiest month, baby boy Spurling is just seven weeks away, and things just seem to be rocking and rolling. 

All good, right?

Sort of. 

Today as I write this for you, I write it for me as well. 

There is no final destination. 

It's about being present and enjoying the process. 

We're all on these journeys...

Losing 20lbs. 

Fitting into a size 8 pants. 

Hitting goals left and right. 

Now, I'm not saying goals are not important to have, I have more goals than anybody I've ever met. 

However, today is a good reminder that hitting the goal is important, but once you hit a goal you're not "done" so you might as well enjoy the process along the way. 

My point?

Sometimes we get so focused on hitting our goals that we think once we get there the sky is going to drop glitter, a rainbow will appear, and all the stresses of life go away.

But as you know, that's not the case, the sun will rise again and we'll have to conquer another day.

Be present.

Fall in love with the process, and enjoy the daily grind of moving the needle.

When you hit that size 8 or lose that 20lbs you may have accomplished a milestone, but you're not done. 

We're never done. 

You then have to set a new goal to keep yourself going so that you don't revert back to your old habits and old self. 

So, what's the destination?

I don't know. 

I don't think there is one.

It will always be about hitting goals but then finding the next milestone that challenges you and excites you.  

That's why it's so important to find something that is fun, be a part of a community bigger than just yourself, and fall in the love with the process. 

I'm on this journey just like you are, learning and growing with you. 

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,

Doug Spurling
