    "life is the most brutal endurance sport

    And you gotta' love that about it."

    -David Goggins

    Some of you don't have a lot of love for that fact, but cod dang, is it important to have. Especially, now, with all this panic, and (some of us) being stuck at home in isolation, it's ATTACKING you. Life is constantly giving you reasons to GET FUKKIN better. Life is constantly throwing curve balls at you because it prevents you from getting complacent. The same thing every day, and the same lack of challenge every day would be boring.

    So let's make today interesting, and take advantage of some of the opportunities we have. I'm working from home today, but I'm going to commit to doing the following things:
    1) 50 Minute Calisthenics workout @ 3PM
    2) At least 1 hour of guitar, and try to finish "Disarm" by Smashing Pumpkins
    3) 30 Minute run
    4) Study for my designation certification
    5) Motivate my bros

    Let's fukkin' go homies, let's make today better than it was yesterday. Let's make the end of the day an improvement over the start of the day.

    What are your goals today brahs?

    Absolutely LOVE Watts! What book are you reading? I am only familiar with his lectures!

    I was listening to this while I worked yesterday;

    Great listen!

    One of the four Noble truths, good chit brah.

    Life is definitely suffering, but the suffering makes you better, and you cannot suffer without understanding joy. So you must always have joy in your suffering.

    Beyond the mountains are more mountains

    I'm in full dad mode since school is closed, I'm not working and my wife is. Hard to be productive with a 1 and 5 year old, but:

    *Worked out
    *Read a book
    *Studying for a cert exam I'm sitting for on Monday
    *Swimming laps when we go in the pool later
    *Cooking healthy food
    *Playing guitar while they rock out on their little instruments, family jam session style

    I'm not gonna' lie, I said 1 hour of guitar, but I'll probably push that as far as I can (or at least as far as my fingers will allow me before getting blisters).

    I've been inside since last Thursday, and haven't gone out. Will continue to remain this way for a while, I suppose. Thanks for reminding me that I do need to take care a lot of cleaning, and I should definitely use this time to make those improvements

    I haven't watched a single episode of anything on Netflix in the time that I have been home. However, I did also recently purchase RDR2, so I have played a fair amount of that.

    I rarely text as it is, so I don't have much to text

    Truthfully, the highlight of my week so far was basically to almost get the strum pattern to Disarm while singing.

    Ton of studying. Ton of calisthenics.

    Ton of hot sauce.

    What cert exam homie?

    Also, what have you been riffing on? I've been trying to get better at guitar, because I'm not particularly good. What resources do you use to learn things that you have trouble with aside from hours of practice?

    Tableau Desktop Specialist. Been using it to build visuals of data science projects I work on in Python. After this I'll be dipping my toes into R.

    For guitar - learn the 5 forms of the pentatonic scale and practice transitioning between them. Once you build all 5 into one endless scale, you can play up and down the entire fretboard. Search YouTube for backing/jam tracks, and go to town.

    I really like the Songsterr app for tabs - you can loop sections, slow them down etc. Great for learning songs, and I like that the premium version is a one time purchase and not a subscription.

    Right now I'm learning Find My Way Back by one of my favorite bands, Four Year Strong. You'd probably appreciate them.

    And then you come on the misc, and realize that for a lot of people, it's not an endurance sport, it's more like the Special Olympics.

    I really like the Songsterr app for tabs - you can loop sections, slow them down etc. Great for learning songs, and I like that the premium version is a one time purchase and not a subscription.

    Right now I'm learning Find My Way Back by one of my favorite bands, Four Year Strong. You'd probably appreciate them.
    Nice, dude, that sounds fancy as hell. I don't know much about programming, or data visuals, but that's pretty dope. Sounds like you're moving toward some very awesome things What's R? (I guess considering I didn't understand the earlier portion of that, it's no surprise I'm asking lol)

    Ah, that's actually good advice and something I never considered. I don't know any scales, although, I have been playing for a while. I know what sounds "nice" by feel, and can kind of mimic playing a scale, without actually knowing what I'm playing. I can hear things, and with a lot of effort, play it, depending on the complexity.

    But actually, maybe now's the time for pentatonic scales. I'll start practicing today, by warming up with learning one.

    Haven't heard of songsterr, but I was using Ultimate Guitar because I've had a subscription for a while... But not having a subscription would be way nicer.

    And I'll give them a listen right now--thanks for the song suggestion. Love discovering new groups and bands!

    Some of you don't have a lot of love for that fact, but cod dang, is it important to have. Especially, now, with all this panic, and (some of us) being stuck at home in isolation, it's ATTACKING you. Life is constantly giving you reasons to GET FUKKIN better. Life is constantly throwing curve balls at you because it prevents you from getting complacent. The same thing every day, and the same lack of challenge every day would be boring.

    So let's make today interesting, and take advantage of some of the opportunities we have. I'm working from home today, but I'm going to commit to doing the following things:
    1) 50 Minute Calisthenics workout @ 3PM
    2) At least 1 hour of guitar, and try to finish "Disarm" by Smashing Pumpkins
    3) 30 Minute run
    4) Study for my designation certification
    5) Motivate my bros

    Let's fukkin' go homies, let's make today better than it was yesterday. Let's make the end of the day an improvement over the start of the day.

    What are your goals today brahs?

    Cross Country Skiing ends when you finish the race, but life only stops when you die.

    And if you're a hardcore endurance athlete, you're just adding to the difficulty meter in your life so like, hell yeah.

    To clarify:
    HELL YEAH BROTHER

    Full plate indeed, homie. But I know that you'll be able to get a handle on this; you're not one of those bros that lets chit like this destroy him. You're the kind of person who comes up with solutions.
    Always remember that failure is possible, but if you got to a certain point before, you can do it again. If the side hustle hemorrhages, work to make the changes you need to implement. But, if worst case scenario, it collapses, know that eventually you can get it back to the place it was before the disruption.

    You got this brother!!!!

    It's a new challenge in your life, and new seas to chart. But once you've charted these seas, you will have one more notch on your belt. And one more year of experience that will make you steel in the face of impending peril. Not only that, but your kids will look up to you knowing that Dad can handle ANYTHING that comes his way. And that's the kind of role model you are, man!!!

    You've done it before! Do it again!

    Funny. I tried to make a thread like this two days ago and someone called me a loser for trying to be positive.


    Anyways, keep doing you OP. I'm trying my best to make these off days productive. There's so much that can be done with this free time, but the challenge is having the discipline to use it properly.

    Here is some perspective for you, whenever that happens.

    Instinctively, we are aware (however acutely), that we are at fault for the large majority of our hangups. When somebody walks around, telling you that you could be doing more, your knee-jerk reaction when you are one of these people is to tell them to get fukked. The reason for that, is specifically, because your happiness or positive attitude is an affront to the comfort afforded to them by their lifestyle of shifting blame. In short, it makes them feel BAD.

    And it should, because biologically speaking, we are driven to have a small amount of dissatisfaction with our lives so as to constantly be finding ways to improve our lives. It's a survival trait, we've inherited from CENTURIES UPON CENTURIES of having to be prepared for everything constantly.


    Also, to your second point. That's why I made this thread--to get people hype all over again about all this new free time. Positivity is a constant investment into yourself. You have to remind yourself, often, how fortunate you are to be in your position, even if it doesn't seem very provident at the time. After all, you always have the opportunity to improve, and that's what helps positivity remain strong.

    I agree OP, Life is sport, so there has to be winners and losers. That is why I laugh at all those fools who die prematurely. Like those cancer kids.... They clearly just didn’t train hard enough at life to win. Srs.
