He doesn't train for it but just jumps right in, literally. Doug makes sure he keeps a sustainable pace and keeps his form perfect, and it takes him about four hours. The experience isn't fun, per se, but he gets a great sense of satisfaction once he's done. If you need extra motivation for your own extreme challenge, sign up with a family member or a group of friends. The Specialist's Dilemma From the time they're kids, many athletes become specialists in one sport and become very proficient in it, but they neglect how their body works outside the confines of this single discipline. So basketball players direct all their physical development, cognitive learning, and skill acquisition toward building effectiveness on the hardwood. But unless they play other sports and explore the outdoors as well, they're limiting their proficiency. I'll remind you that you're not the only person dealing with this cognitive dissonance. Most people are at the exact same spot you're at. You're in a large sea of fish being constantly pushed by emotional tides. I really need to hammer this home, because that's what it takes to convince even the most cynical people that a problem exists. So, if I need to share 25 statistics and studies in one giant list to prove my point, that people need to stop being pathetically apathetic, then so be it! 25 Reasons Why We're Pathetically Apathetic 75% of employees steal from the workplace. According to a 2015 study from the US Chamber of Commerce, 75% of employees steal from the workplace and that most do so repeatedly. Nearly 95% of all businesses suffer from theft in the workplace. A typical organization loses 5% of its annual revenues due to employee fraud. For years he acted out, then one day he left me for good. I was devastated.

I went out and had liposuction, Botox, and my breasts lifted. It was as if I wanted to be one of the women he was choosing, yet in reality they didn't look a whole lot different than me. Now I was simply left with a false me. Having cosmetic surgery is a personal choice, but it is a decision that best comes from a strong sense of self and not from trying to control, sustain, or contain a relationship. Many women become compulsive about being attractive to their partner. After years and years of being in competition with other women (even if only in fantasy via pornography) and believing you are in constant comparison to other women, the sense of attack on your desirability as a sexual partner wounds your spirit. Adding to this, addicts often lose interest in their partners sexually, as their sexual behavior is not about intimacy. Some women finally give up and become the exact opposite of the firm, gorgeous, made-up woman they were trying to be for their partner. Focusing exclusively on sports like basketball that involve performing on level surfaces within defined boundaries and against an equal number of similarly skilled opponents means missing out on the varied terrain, freedom, and variety that they would find while snowboarding down a mountain or stand-up paddleboarding in the ocean. This is not to say that nobody should choose a sport or activity to focus their efforts and time on, but rather that for the sake of their overall well-being, learning, and movement competence, people should also try other active pursuits, some of which should take place outside. This is another area in which fitness technology fails us. Once we've convinced ourselves that we're runners or cyclists, we can get sucked into a netherworld of sport-specific metrics and goals that we might never emerge from. Don't make the mistake of letting your device or app set your agenda or limit you to a single sport. There's so much more out there to enjoy. Why Are You Here? Are you following a fitness routine or training for a sport because you want to be or because you feel you have to be? When I first developed the Power Speed Endurance program, I felt obligated to keep competing in ultramarathons to prove that my methods worked. The problem was that I was also traveling all over the world to host seminars, doing a lot of interviews, and staying up late most nights to make sure everything got done. When CBS News applied this fact to the 2009 Gross World Product this figure translates to a potential global fraud loss of more than $2. One-third of all U.

On top of all this, an INC. Magazine article puts this in a big perspective. Chamber of Commerce estimates that theft by employees costs American companies $20 billion to $40 billion a year. To pay for it, every man and woman working in America today contributes more than $400 per year. Smartphones Are Making Us Dumb. In a Psychology Today article from 2015, an experiment about productivity in the workplace with smartphones was described. They had some participants work while their phones were stowed out of sight and some participants with their phones in the line of sight. Compared to those whose phones were stowed out of view, participants whose phones sat on their desk performed nearly 20% worse. It is not that uncommon for partners to give up on how they look and feel sexually after striving for perfection. In time, I looked the way his rejection made me feel, totally unlovely. It is ironic that pornography and cybersex created the exact opposite in real life of what they must have promised him in his fantasy life. Distorted Anger You have the right to be angry; Anger exists along a continuum, from avoidance to feeling frustrated to blatant rage. Because you are reading this article, you are most likely at one of the ends of the continuum: you are either steely in your outrage with ironclad control or you are fully out of control or perhaps you are completely anger avoidant. You may have moved all over the continuum multiple times. Unfortunately, by now that anger is often both distorted and fueled by myriad other feelings and negative thoughts. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Add in full commitment to my sport, and you've got a perfect storm for health problems. It came to the point where I had to just hold up my hands and admit that I couldn't do it all anymore.

Simply put, I had to decide between competitive racing and this business that I'd worked so hard to build. I realized that my motivation for continuing the ultras wasn't pure and certainly wasn't beneficial to my mental, physical, or emotional well-being. So I had to let it go. If you're struggling with health issues or just feeling overwhelmed and run down, ask yourself some questions: Is this training taking more out of me than it's giving back? Why am I doing it? Would my life be better or worse if I did something else? When it comes to a physical practice, you shouldn't do it out of obligation, because you've been doing it since you were a kid, or because it's all you know. If there's no joy in it or it's breaking you down, there's no reason to keep going and you should find something else that makes you happy. Most Employees Only Work for 3 Hours Per Day. The Bureau of Labor Statistics shared that workers only work for approximately two hours and 53 minutes. We Don't Care About Geography. The Harvard School of Education found that over 50% of the 18-24 year-old Americans surveyed by National Geographic couldn't find the state of New York on a map. Employees Actually Watch Adult Content While at Work. Newsweek revealed that a quarter of employees who use the internet during work watch porn. Apparently, pornsites are actually the most active during office hours, more than any other time of the day. A Quarter of All Women Suffered Child Abuse. A study put together by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 13 men were sexually abused before the age of 18. There Are a Lot of Crazy People Out There. In the fury of rage you may do things that you never would have imagined yourself doing. I was hell on wheels and Mt.

Vesuvius at the same time. Not a pretty picture. I was ready to string the other women up high. I was most angry when I knew the women, from work or our neighborhood. My husband saw a lot of prostitutes, but I wasn't so angry with them, just him. I guess I thought that is what prostitutes are supposed to do. It is not what a coworker or your neighbor is supposed to do. I would rant and rave at my husband, and he would just stand there most of the time. This question of motivation applies to family dynamics, too. Frank Merritt remembers reading about Archie Manning's desire to spend a lot of time with his sons once he retired from the NFL. As a result, he spent hours doing what he did best with them--throwing and catching footballs in the backyard. As a result, Peyton and Eli touched the ball a lot more than they would've if they'd just played Pop Warner football. So indirectly, almost by accident, Archie set them up for their own stellar NFL careers. The lesson here is that if you put a healthy, well-balanced life first, you'll often find fitness and performance along the way. The Trickle Down As we've become increasingly fixated on measuring our fitness, it was perhaps inevitable that we'd eventually start pushing the tools that've hooked us onto our children. We've already seen from exposes like Chris Bell and Peter Berg's HBO documentary Trophy Kids that our obsession with youth sports achievement has gone way too far. How much worse is it going to get when we're now outfitting our kids-- who are already overtaxed with the demands of umpteen after-school activities, traveling for away games, and the weight of our unrealistic expectations--with brightly colored wearables? According to reports published by the ADA National Network in 2018, researchers found that, in a nationally representative study of Americans ages 15 to 54, 18% of those who were employed said they experienced symptoms of a mental health disorder in the previous month. There Aren't Many Fatherly Role Models.
