I showed up at 4:30am and set up the four stations.  I used my newly purchased cones (I know – I must be really getting serious 🙂 … I bought 8 jump ropes two weeks ago and now bought 8 cones)  Then, I went for an 1.5 mile EC run.

Temperature was fantastic (upper 50’s/low 60’s at the beginning).

Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb.  When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, “All of our work is in vain.  We have learned nothing.  Not sure if we can use electricity properly.” Edison replied very confidently, “Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot.  We know that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb.” The moral is that we can learn from our mistakes and don’t quit.  If Edison would have given up or let his failures stop him then he might not have succeeded. We all have disappointments or obstacles in our life regularly.   We can choose to let them get us down and become sad clowns or we can learn from these “not successes”.   I did not say failure because a “not success” becomes a failure when you let it.  If something doesn’t work out for you such as a project at work, an outing with the family with young children that don’t want to cooperate, a discussion with the M, a job interview, or whatever it might be then instead of focusing on the negative and thinking damn, that didn’t go as I planned and I just lost a ton on that project, or why the heck can’t the kids just enjoy the day after all of that effort. Learn from the “not success”.  Don’t let it become a failure.  Ok.  Put on the thinking cap and think why that project budget went way over  – I should have went over my expectations of how many hours each of the tasks should take, or how come the yard isn’t mowed – shit maybe I shouldn’t have wrote that 16 page Preblast for the F3 workout when I was planning on mowing or realizing 7 and 8 year old boys need to be active and don’t want to go to the library for 2 hrs of quiet, sitting still time so I’ll take them to the park next time or whatever.  Reflect on the “not success” and come up with one thing that you might try different next time and it may not work the next time but just keep learning and one time it will be a success. My challenge to you today is reflect on the last “not success” that you had and think of something that you might try differently next time and hell it may become a success. Aye?
