"Get to" or "Have to"

"Get to" or "Have to"

As we approach Thanksgiving, I am always filled with gratitude for the blessed life that I get to live. This year is no exception. All of us, even those facing daunting challenges, get to live lives of which 99% of the world’s population can only dream. We live in a beautiful place with a fantastic quality of life. The worries and stresses and anxieties that keep us up late at night are the products of jobs, families, and relationships. All of these are outgrowths of lives well-lived. We are privileged to have these “problems” in our lives.

WLC Finish and Pro Talk

As we wind down the Whole Life Challenge, I am always reflective on what went well and what could have or should have gone better. That reflection usually has two dimensions…one focused on the gym and community side, the other on me personally as I always start the WLC with big plans and goals. I welcome your input and feedback on the gym aspect, as we want to support your health and fitness goals in the best way possible. It is a critical component to the transformational change that is our mission. And I’ll keep chewing on the big ideas around my own WLC successes and failures.
