Quote I'm Pondering:


"There are a thousand obstacles that you will run into daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. There will be days you swear you’re getting worse rather than better, times when you feel everyone is progressing faster than you, moves that seem to work well on you but which you can’t seem to perform on anyone. Understand that maximum effort is not just about how hard you can push your body - it’s about how long you can push your mind. As long as the mind leads - the body will follow. No matter how tired your body may be if you can keep your mind active you will never stop. Keep your mind in the game by constantly setting new goals, asking yourself what you can change to improve progress and studying the great athletes of past and present and researching how their knowledge can translate into your progress. Physical exhaustion is normal and, within common sense limits, a good thing in so far as it indicates the kind of effort required for excellence - it will pass with a good meal and a sound nights sleep - but mental exhaustion is fatal as the body won’t follow a despondent, unmotivated mind. Look for ways to stay mentally engaged and motivated and physical fatigue will never stop you." John Danaher

What I'm reading, listening, watching or eating:


A fun, awesome read with about the best advice you can receive when it comes to healthy living.


1) Eat Right

2) Make your bedroom attractive and clean

3) In the morning do not dillydally! Get up!


Angelo (Charles Atlas) was bullied because he was small and weak so he decided to start lifting weights and became "as strong as an ox". This famous athlete was hired to pose for over 75 statues, won the worlds most beautiful man contest and was a Coney Island sideshow performer.


This will be sitting on my desk for years to come :)

Random:

A few days ago I stumbled upon the worlds shortest intelligence test, the Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT). Developed in Princeton in 2005 by psychologist Shane Frederick, it is designed to test your ability to ignore your gut response and think slower and more rationally.


Here are the 3 famous questions. 1. A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?


2. If it takes 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets?


3. In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of the lake? Take your time and enjoy these, I will provide the answers in the next newsletter.



Have an amazing weekend everyone!
