I think I can boil down the goal of this blog to this quote:
We don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.
It’s attributed to a Greek philosopher named Archilochus. But it’s been interpreted in different ways. Recently, I heard it stated:
You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.
I’ve come to believe that developing a system that allows me to inch forward is more important than setting a lofty goal of where I see myself in 5 years. Staring at the scoreboard isn’t going to change it.
This site is focuses on what I’ve learned about developing and maintaining systems that can help us be healthier and happier.
