Intentionally negative

Mile 8. Then a two-mile cool down to a walk.

When you change what you see, what you see changes.

New runners are programmed to believe that the longer you run, the slower your speed becomes.

Why?

Because the body gets tired.

Like when you do pull-ups, the more you do, the harder each successive pull-up becomes.

As a lifelong sprinter, for me to run 10 miles without stopping is a miracle.

To run eight consecutive miles with negative splits is astonishing.

To make mile eight as a sub-seven-minute mile is remarkable.

To do this in my late 50’s, as a sprinter, is extraordinary.

Perfect example of growth mindset.

Note: well aware there is a few second difference for mile 5 and 6. I’m not a machine who can lock into an exact pace. The spirit and intention was negative splits. Being off by a few actual seconds doesn’t diminish the intentionality to run eight consecutive negative mile-splits.

Note: Closed mindset would be a person arguing that miles 5 and 6 technically aren’t negative. Technically no. Psychologically yes.

Can’t get enough at home

father holding son at beach sunset
There was a time when this small video recording camera seemed like a dream come true because it was so portable. Hard to believe it would eventually fit in your pocket, double as a telephoto and wide-angle camera, work as a telephone, AND, hold every piece of information known to humankind. In. Your. Front. Pant. Pocket.

Can’t get enough at home.

There is no bar too high for your HQ mindset.

Life is an HQ gamble.

Running your life like a business is a gamble.

So is running your life like it is not a business.

No prophets here

Disney Keynote Speaker Jeff Noel service awards
Tip of the iceberg. No one knows nor cares about my convictions. Disney noticed, appreciated, and recognized it on a hyper-excellent level.

Your only hope in the deepest, darkest moments in your life is that others who are generally quiet and cowardly, we step forward with action and conviction for what is good and decent.

Ukraine’s reputation is becoming enhanced because of their leader’s will and their Country’s will to defend their freedom – with their life.

No one knew Ukrainian people as a general stereotype, had such conviction.

Free to hide?

hidden Mickey
We think hidden Mickeys involve a derivative of three circles. Why? Because we have a fixed mindset. Photo of a hidden Mickey. Did you find the hidden Mickey? Do you know one is there?

Free to hide?

Like the hidden Mickey above, some things are hidden in plain sight.

You can hide your dreams, your hopes, your joy, your courage.

You can, but why would you?

The travesty isn’t hiding them from others.
