A never-ending journey in making health way more awesome than you'd ever think.
Event + Response = Outcome
The e + r = o forumla is from The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield. Which I have not read, for the record, but it’s moving up in my reading list.
This is an interesting way to rethink Cause and Effect. There is this third dimension that no one ever talks about and it’s VERY FUCKING IMPORTANT.
My boss brought this up in his podcast and I think it’s an interesting way to approach motivation and experience. Did you fail at something? Okay. Did you learn from it? Then you had a positive outcome as a result of that failure. It’s all about what you take away from it and apply after the initial incident.
I think this is important in life, every single day. If you fail at something on the day-to-day, does it really matter that much? You are going to miss a workout, have a stupid argument with your partner, eat a huge slice of chocolate cake, or have an idea rejected. You know what? The world didn’t end. Let yourself use that as a way to create new expectations of yourself and eventually turn it into success.
Try to use this as a way to recreate yourself as a more perceptive, responsive, intelligent person.
