#9 – Chief Inspiration Officer for Outside Magazine 36-year-old Eric Greitens says whether running marathons, a great organization, or climbing a mountain, you have to build great habits.
It’s all about energy. Whether you’re leading a nonprofit, running a private company, doing something outdoors, or conducting military operations–you have to build habits that keep your energy high. This is my formula:
- Vigorous exercise: Six days a week, I walk out of a gym, a dojo, or off a track pouring with sweat. When I have a great workout, I rarely have a bad day.
- Good fuel: When I eat clean, quality food during my day, my energy never sags.
- Good partners: Working with a team of positive people keeps your spirits up.
- Balance: I pray every day, and I also laugh, a lot. You won’t have focus without balance.
- A goal: A worthy challenge will take care of your motivation for you.
Sounds refreshing and simple.
Feeling a bit guilty now. I just finished two handfuls of tortilla chips. Is it okay if I wash it down with a fresh cup of coffee? I’ll french press it. I do pray as well as laugh at myself behind my back daily, so maybe I’m not too far away from healthy.
Just logged on to Greg’s site to find blogs about forgiveness and Overachieve is the most recent blog. I like it and agree with the simple but powerful message. I am wondering what exactly he means by “clean” food. Emphasis on vigorous ex…sweat is good for the body! I would add….energy comes from working within your strength set. Nothing drains a body more than trying to work at something you’re not gifted to do.
