Good morning my fellow Monday Morning Quarterback.
Wow! Two unbelievable football games yesterday, especially that Chiefs-Bills game last night.
I hate to go to negative town on such a great contest, but what was the NFL thinking when they “improved” their OT rules?
People give me so much s*** about soccer having shootouts to decide the outcome of games, but at least each team has an opportunity with the ball. That game was essentially decided by a coin toss.
Oh well, it was a great game.
It’s a new week for us to dominate, so let’s get to it.
I want to share the most valuable lesson I’ve learned in the decades I’ve spent as a business owner and how you can apply it to your fitness like all of our successful Crew do…
So, when we started 18STRONG, we knew we wanted to help golfers change their lives by getting fit and living a happy, healthy life. That part was easy.
The hard part? How were we going to do it?
Were we going to produce DVDs (yeah, that’s how long ago it was)? Were we going to have a membership group? How were we going to deliver the workouts? How were we going to get across our message?
Then, how were we going to market our products? Google? Facebook? YouTube? Billboards? TV? Radio?
When you start a business, it’s overwhelming because of the number of decisions you have to make. And the number of options for each decision. It starts to multiply like rabbits.
And that’s when FOBO creeps in…Fear Of Better Options.
You’re never 100% sure you’re making the right decision because there are so many ways to do things. It can be paralyzing.
The problem is we think that we’re going to miss out on the “best” option.
Then, we get stuck.
So, what do you do? Well, what took me a long time to figure out is this lesson:
Just f-ing do it!
You may make the wrong decision. But, you won’t know it’s the wrong decision until you make it. The worst thing you can do is get bogged down by over-thinking.
Even if it’s the worst decision you’ve ever made, nobody is going to stop you from fixing it. We’re humans. We’re resilient. We are built to learn, then adapt.
And I’ve seen it happen all-too-often with guys and their fitness. They are on a futile search for the perfect program, then end up never getting started.
Again, you’re not gonna know until you know.
We’re still making mistakes with 18STRONG, and we’ll continue to do so. All we can do is take the information we’re given, and quickly use it to make the best decision at the time.
Had FOBO gotten the best of us, I’d be back to helping workman’s comp injuries in the Physical Therapy clinic – not exactly what I wanted for my life’s work:)
Today, your challenge is to stop looking for the perfect option (it doesn’t exist), choose a training program, and just do it.
You’ve got this.
Your #1 Fan,
PS – If you’re looking for a strength training program that’s going to help you play your best golf, then we’ve got you covered in the 18STRONG App.
There are programs built for the beginner on up to the gym rat. And spoiler alert: we work our tails off to give you the best programming, but they’re not perfect.
I’d give it a shot for a month. The worst that happens is you get 30 days of movement and strength training, and feel great. Not a bad worst-case scenario.
