It is easy to get lost in the grind of our day to day to professional and personal lives. As we grind it out, it easy to lose site of how much progress we’ve made. This week we spent three days as a leadership team working on our budget initiatives for 2018. It was an invigorating, discussing spurring event that was really productive.
This was my fourth year attending and my third year presenting. The first year I presented, it wasn’t pretty. They beat me up pretty good. Thankfully, each year has gone progressively better than the last year. This year I presented on two days to a much larger audience than I’d been accustomed to, but it went very well. As I look back on my previous budget experiences and compare to this year’s presentation, I can see how far I have come.
While I’ve made some great progress towards my professional goals, my fitlife goals too a backseat to Twizzlers, Snickers, and catered meals. When I got home tonight and my treadmill and TRX were glaring at me. I went for a quick run on the treadmill before dinner.
My treadmill and I got reacquainted before a great dinner with friends. My TRX, however, is looking a little neglected. Tomorrow I will be getting back on the wagon eating right. There are times that we deviate from our health goals and that’s gonna happen. We can’t let it derail us completely. There is no quick way to success be it professional or personal. There is no elevator to take us to the top floor only hard work and persistence.
