So I was at the gym this morning, and bench pressed 3,750 pounds. Mind you, this was over the course of 30 reps. Considering the world record for a bench press is 885 pounds, it’s pretty much a given that I didn’t do it all at once. But over the course of three sets of ten reps a piece, I lifted 125 pounds each time, which ended up with 3,750 pounds in total.
Now granted, it might be a little misleading to tell you my total work output from my three sets as one number, but the foundation is this:
The little things you do add up quickly. Doing the little things over and over is the basis for any improvement you’ll ever hope to have in your life.
Little things, done repeatedly over time, can have massive effect. 30 minutes a day of exercise might not seem like a lot, but over the course of a year, it can fundamentally change your body. Something as simple as replacing mayo with mustard on your daily sandwich can cause you to drop 14 pounds of weight in a year, even if you do nothing else.
Never underestimate the little things. This goes both ways, as well. “Oh, I’m only skipping one workout,” or “I’ll just have that one pizza” is fine in moderation. But when it starts to become a habit, you need to watch out. Our life is made up of all the little things we do on a daily basis. Make sure you’re doing the right ones most of the time, and you’ll be fine.
In other news: Would you like some Cryptocurrency? I’m proud to say that I’ve been selected as one of the 100 founding creators who have their own Cryptocurrency coin! Mine is called $SHANK (of course it is,) and it’s tied to the $RALLY coin. It’s real crypto! It can be bought and sold just like any other currency, and it’s currently trading at $1.97 per coin.
The cool thing about my coin, though, is that it comes with access. Want a free pass to my next ShankMinds Virtual Entrepreneur event? Buy some coins. Want me to speak at your event? Buy some coins. Want to meet up with me for a 1-1 brainstorming session? Buy some coins. Over time, I’ll also be giving awaya LOT of my own coin to my audience.
In fact, want some now for free? Anyone who makes a donation to Team In Training for my Ironman Triathlon will get 20 $SHANK coins. Hold onto them – Like I said, they come with access, and could potentially increase in value, as well! (Someone in my ShankMinds group bought 1,000 $SHANK coins at .33 cents and sold them at $1.75 a piece. Not bad for two weeks work.) But the key is the access you get to me and my network. Some other cool creators have their own coins too, including Scott Monty, Jay Baer, Jeremiah Owyang, and others. Check them out, also!
Cool stuff happening, and I’m glad you’re along for the ride! Stay tuned! More coming next week!
Much love and happy Friday,
