Moving on, here are 2 fitness concepts, 2 business nuggets, and a quote to consider this week.

2 Fitness Tips


"Every single negative thought you have about how your body looks is someone else's verbalized opinion living in your head."

Ren Jones


I've never regretted doing a workout, only skipping one.

2 Business Nuggets


"When you are young, you have raw smarts; when you are old, you have wisdom. When you are young, you can generate lots of facts; when you are old, you know what they mean and how to use them."

- Arthur C. Brooks


Large audiences are inefficient for deepening relationships. Trust needs touch. It is easier, faster, and more profitable to be famous to the family than it is to be famous on the Internet.

1 Quote to Consider

"We pick our jobs for the wrong reasons and then we settle for them. We begin to accept that it’s not realistic to do something we truly love for a living. Too many of us who start down the path of compromise will never make it back. Considering the fact that you’ll likely spend more of your waking hours at your job than in any other part of your life, it’s a compromise that will always eat away at you." - Clayton M. Christensen
