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

2 Fitness Tips


Exercise prolongs life, prevents disease, and speeds up recovery from illness or injury. It also slows down age-related loss of muscle, bone, and functional abilities, and improves balance, coordination, and cognitive function.

Nobody over 35 every regretted the mobility work that they did before they turned 35. What many of us do regret is not doing more of it.

2 Business Nuggets


Thought leadership is primarily about the earned reputation of the person, not the quality of the content.

The truth is that success on social media without success in the real world is exceeding rare.


Think of social media as a savings account: Make investments when you have extra time and money. It’s ok to hope that it kicks off ongoing interest so long as you plan for it to take years to develop into anything meaningful.

1 Quote to Consider

" Trying to win the internet is seductive. In almost every case, people who provide value directly to a much smaller community earn more money. Instead of trying to monetize generalized attention, they monetize the quality of the trade."

Taking more short breaks midday these days to go for short walks. It's making a marked difference in my energy. Worth trying if you find yourself with brain fog throughout the day. Oh, and I just ate tacos. Three of them. K, gotta go. Date night with Calvin (my son) soon 🙂

P.S. Run Forrest, Run!
