It needed to happen.
Tightening of bolts.
Sealing the leaks.
Ratcheting down some straps.
Debuting on Wed, May 4.
A doubling down on discipline, diet, training, and daily life-impacting habits.
It’s my personal challenge consisting of simple and easy actions, but when combined and followed for 50 straight days with absolutely no deviations — it is a challenge that should change me.
I plan to come out on the other side as a leaner, fitter, healthier, grittier, more focused, more compassionate version of myself.
Why 50 days? ……..I’m turning 50 years old this year. Sounded about right.
There’s nothing scientific about it. It’s not a secret. It’s not marketable. It’s just me doing things that I need to be doing right now.
I can’t really explain how I devised it. It is simply based on things I’ve done, read, seen, or heard in my past. I’ve borrowed elements and/or philosophies from a number of different programs/books/people including:
- Give and Take
- Spartan Up!
- The Happiness Project
- Deep Work
- Chad Wright
- The book of Daniel from the Bible
- The Object of FarmHouse Fraternity
Take a peek below if you’re interested.
In order this to be a success, it will require me to do things that I value and respect in others.
- Early to bed and (very) early to rise.
- Intentional and thoughtful focus on others.
- Saying ‘no’ to low value activities.
- No complaining. No whining. No negativity.
- Seizing time with family whenever it’s available.
Fifty days. Fifty days of getting my mind and body right. Fifty days.
