  • Day 6: Shaping Discipline

    I didn’t get up on time again – yeah I blamed still having a sore throat, but really I could have gotten up. There was a massive blizzard so I ended up keeping my son home with me today – but I did manage to get everything done and even a bunch of work (having…

  • Day 5: Shaping Discipline

    This morning did not go as planned – my body needed more rest. So I let myself sleep in, then I got up and got my son ready while my wife got ready for work. This morning has been a simple exercise in pushing forward while accepting previous choices. I couldn’t make myself take a…

  • Day 3: Shaping Discipline

    It’s interesting to me how I’m suddenly having a massive amount of resistance around doing martial practice today – I’m going to get it done. But even writing this journal entry is a form of resistance to doing what I know I should be doing. Yeah, I think it’s that I really do love the…

  • Reflections on Starting Off Winning

    There hasn’t been any magical transformation or anything. But I do find myself less averse to pain. Teaching my Kenpo classes I’ve gotten back into harder contact – which is nice and mentally it feels good. The anticipation of pain makes the pain worse when it arrives – simply accepting pain seems to keep the…

  • Shaping Discipline

    So here I am starting my 2nd 30 day challenge for 2024. After a lot of thought, I decided I need to continue building habits I wish I had developed – years – ago. So I’m adding in some small time blocks – 10 minutes seems to be doable while still being slightly uncomfortable for…

  • Day 30: Starting Off Winning

    Well, here I am at the finish line. Over the last few days I had the thought: When the battle is over, tighten your chinstrap. Samurai Maxim I’d been close to completing a goal, and I was on guard just in case. I did have some trouble getting out of bed this morning – I…

  • Day 29: Starting Off Winning

    Wow, I didn’t know if I’d actually make it this far. The cold water therapy was the part I was not looking forward to the most – but now I think I enjoy subjecting myself to the cold. Yeah it sucks, but I know it’s only temporary and I’ll come out the other side just…

  • Day 28: Starting Off Winning

    Wow, getting down to the end here. I had a thought last night that I need to do something to improve my professional capabilities – the easiest thing for me to do is to read a book on a cybersecurity topic every month. Then I was thinking about how to break it down, easiest thing…

  • Day 27: Starting Off Winning

    I didn’t get out of bed until 5:15, but I did get everything done. I was going to head into the office today, but my son wasn’t feeling well. So I stayed home and have been taking care of him. I have started making sure my major objectives are things that will make life easier…
