… because it is there.

Today YHC had the honor of leading the beasts of Katy’s newest AO, The Peak. This is an AO that has tons of option to deliver some creative beatdowns, particuarly a parking garage. And YHC can’t resist a good parking garage.

The Weinkie was a fairly simple one. But effective. YHC employed the Dive Bomb Merkin, which, in his honest opinion, is one of the most effective upper body movements that delivers a full assault on all parts of the arms, shoulders, chest, and back. YHC had anticipated modifying to normal merkins as the PAX tired, but they chewed through the challenge and we finished the whole set.  In the end, we finished 120 Dive Bomb Merkins, Offset Squats, and Big Boy Sit-ups.  A high quality beatdown was successfully delivered.

43 Feet

F3 talks a lot about the 43 feet ahead of you.  The 43 feet in this case is the immediate future, particularly focusing on making sure the last decision was executed well and thinking about the next one that needs to be made.  Starting a new AO is all about the 43 feet.  It is easy to get wrapped up in indecision, strategies that are complex, and analysis paralysis, but an extreme focus on the next 43 feet are what we are after.  Constant improvement is what the ultimate objective is.

Miyamoto Musashi wrote “Today is a victory over yourself of yesterday; Tomorrow is your victory over lesser men.” YHC is the perfect quote for that.  Don’t get this twisted.  As leaders, we have to have a good vision of where we are headed.  Otherwise there is no clarity of mission.  In our personal and professional life, we should be driving a clarity of mission AND commitment to action.

Go forth and make yourself and your area of influence better, 43 feet at a time.

Time to Get After It.
