BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Conquer Yourself

The first Open workout was announced last night. In fairly typical CrossFit fashion, when I looked at it on paper, I thought, “That doesn’t look too bad.” Then I read this post on Facebook from the people we use for our programming at Nevermore: “If you’re doing the...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Better people…and likely happier people

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! We had a coaches meeting last weekend. The purpose of these get-togethers is twofold: we want to loop the coaches in by covering gym happenings and getting feedback and ideas on what is good at Nevermore and what we need to improve; but primarily,...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! Last week I came into the gym to set up an Amazon Firestick on one of the TVs so we could display profiles of our Coach and all the athletes participating in each class. You plug it into one of the HDMI ports, connect to WiFi and BOOM!...cool new...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Absorb emotional reaction

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! What do I do when a competitor speaks unflatteringly about me? How about when someone I’ve never met comments with a snide remark on a post on our business page? What do YOU do when a friend is no longer friendly? What is the right response? I...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! Our friend who delivers mail to our house is Sherry. In the past, I would have thought of Sherry as our mail lady. But when she was not on her route for a couple of weeks I realized that she was more than simply someone who performs a service for...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Leisure Day

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Leisure Day

Between the initial stages of outfitting our soon-to-be-campervan and the arrival of Labor Day weekend, I got to thinking a little about vacations. Specifically, how much we look forward to getting away but often come out the other side needing a “vacation from our vacation”. This ever happen to you?
BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: MY attitude, MY thoughts, and MY actions

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: MY attitude, MY thoughts, and MY actions

I’m an emotional person. Always have been. The type of kid who cried when he accidentally mowed over a box turtle while cutting the grass. The guy who gets choked up in the middle of an argument. Someone who prefers a hug to a handshake. I’ve always considered it an attribute. I like being someone who FEELS. My challenge recently has been trying to not let my emotions alone determine my reactions.
BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Bring on the next ADVENTURE

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Bring on the next ADVENTURE

Angie and I just got back from another one of our roadtrips. When we travel for an extended period, we typically like to combine some camping, some AirBnB’s and a visit or two with old friends, along with a healthy dose of outdoors activities. We don’t focus on CrossFit, or even fitness really, but rather using the fitness we’ve established in the gym to adventure in other ways.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.

In the Great Good Place, Ray Oldenburg describes what he calls "the third place," a place that is neither work nor home where people can spend time together. A third place is a neutral ground where people from different walks of life in the community can meet and get to know one another, having in common perhaps only their desire to frequent this particular place.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Give what has been given to you.

This past Monday, the 29th of April, I had the pleasure of attending a gathering for a friend… an affair that celebrated a milestone achievement for her. Admittedly nervous and a bit reluctant to take center stage, she stood in front of a crowd and shared part of her story. So much of what she touched on was powerful, but the thing that I heard loudest was this: Give what has been given to you.
BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: WHAT is right, rather than WHO is right.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: WHAT is right, rather than WHO is right.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! I inherited a lot from my dad. His sense of humor. His love of sports and passion for coaching. His sensitivity and deep compassion for people. His desire to be an entrepreneur. Having a role model as a kid that became a best friend over time was...
