The Whole Life Challenge starts on Saturday (you can register at http://www.whole.lc/wlcny15/pt/bighorncrossfit but regardless of whether you register, I wanted to give you a tip about reaching your goals. I call it building a different boat. Remember the scene in Jaws when the police chief sees the enormous 25-foot great white shark for the first time? He looks at the fisherman planning to capture the shark and says, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” When your goals change, you’ve got to build a different boat. The environment you used to have won’t work. The habits you used to practice aren’t effective. You have to act as if you have already reached your goal. Your boat has to reflect what you want your life to look like. What would your kitchen “look like” if you were the strongest and healthiest you’ve ever been? Would it be packed with those teeny, tiny donuts that come in oblong packages? Pop tarts? Probably not. It would probably be stocked with a lot of fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fresh poultry and beef. Would you plan your meals in advance, or just approach nutrition with a willy-nilly attitude? What time would you go to bed? Wake up? Would you watch three hours a day of TV, or would you do something else with your free time? Setting yourself up, preparing your environment, and building the boat is the easiest part of reaching a goal. Once you get things in order, you can put your mettle to the test. Remember, the Whole Life Challenge is the framework for “trying on” a different lifestyle—one that is committed to well-being in all areas of your life. It’s your boat.
