Question of the Day

Here’s a question for you:

What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?

This question reminds me of Stephen Covey’s principle of beginning with the end in mind. Decide what you want to do or who you want to be when you’re on your death bed, and live your life toward those goals. This way, you become clear on what’s really important to you and you can live your own values.

Think about it and share if you would like in the comments.

Question of the Day

Here’s a question for you:

What would you like to learn? What are you doing about it?

I’ve always been interested in learning random things but I don’t want to go back to school right now. I would rather teach myself. Physically, I’m committed to learning as much Jiu Jitsu as I can as long as my body will allow me to. But I’m also spending time teaching myself to draw pen and ink works called Zen Doodles. These are line drawings that use patterns and textures to fill in areas of the drawing. I’m also working on teaching myself Spanish, using online resources. Both can be done piecemeal in a few minutes every day. It’s fun and I feel challenged.

Let me know in the comments what you want to learn and how you’re going about it.

Question of the Day

Here’s a question for you:

What lesson have you learned the hard way, either on or off the mat?

Apparently I’m a slow learner in many areas. Before I started jiu jitsu I injured my shoulder (partially torn rotator cuff) and my hamstring (pulled doing sprints). Both times I went back to my workouts too soon and set myself back. Now I know to let myself heal completely before resuming my normal activities. I still don’t like waiting but I will if necessary. 

Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts.

Question of the Day

Here’s a question for you:

When was the last time you tried something new? What did you try?

My Answer: I guess I’m not very adventurous because I can’t think of anything off-hand. I’m always trying now things in training but off the mat, nada. This is something I can work on I think…
