Learning and Learning
I just got back from a 5-mile walk. It took me less than 90 minutes, and during that time, I listened to 3 podcasts, and finished listening to the 7 Habits of Highly Successful People (audio book).
I burned calories, increased my knowledge, had a great break in the day and got some fresh air. And it feels great!
My friend John Iams of thePRRT.com has been working with me on my attitudes and beliefs around fitness and health. One of the things he’s got me thinking differently about is what he calls “leaning”.
Most people talk about losing weight. But hardly anyone likes the idea of losing—even if it’s unwanted pounds. The subconscious mind can’t really get a handle on weight loss. It can deal with a target weight much better, but I find that most of us are still trying—unsuccessfully for the most part—to focus on losing weight rather than arriving at an ideal body mass.
The concept of “leaning” is much better and I thank John for the distinction. I’m confident that it will make a difference.
I have literally thousands of hours of audio and video files to listen to and watch. And there just aren’t enough hours in the day to avail myself of these rich resources.
Because it enables me to multi-task, my iPod is one of the best investments I’ve made in the last couple of years. I’m leaning and learning at the same time. And that’s a double win for sure.
How about you? Even if you don’t need to lose weight—I mean lean—you can be exercising your body and educating yourself at the same time.
Here’s a no-cost audio for you to start with. It’s the first-ever interview with Dawn and me together—a casual but informative conversation with Frank Sousa asking the questions.
This interview is 36 minutes in length and will give you some real insights into some of the ways Dawn and I think about success.
