Is Your Life a Marathon or Sprint?

Have you ever heard the phrase, 'life is a marathon, not a sprint'? If you've heard it before or are hearing it for the first time, do you agree with it? Personally, I disagree... Think about it, life doesn’t happen at a slow and steady pace - especially if we are pursing something big and meaningful. A life of purpose requires a faster pace, and if we try to live life as a marathon at the pace required, we won't be able to handle it physically, emotionally or mentally. Now let’s dig a little deeper and start recalibrating to a sprinters pace and accelerate our path to our personal vision of success.

Pay Attention to the Seasons

Sometimes the deadlines and big projects have to get done and working those late nights and weekends are required. And then there will be times when the office is a ghost town and there is time to catch our breath. It's almost like the changing of seasons... The seasons do change in life just as in nature.  However, we can't be blind to them when they transition.  Rather, we need to have awareness of the changing seasons to take full advantage of their benefits when they arrive.

The Corporate Athlete Meets the Inner Athlete

Prior to launching Will Athletic and exploring the concept of the Inner Athlete, I had this idea of a business or corporate athlete stuck in my head.  Sure, the excitement and experience of being on the field might not be there, but that sense of competition, desire for growth, and willingness to win absolutely existed.  So how could we harness that athlete's mindset and apply it on a daily basis in the office?  Seeing an article about making Corporate Athletes was something I had to check out.
