DB Squat Clean Thrusters (45/25)This weekend I start the 2nd year of a 2 year entrepreneurial leadership and team building training program. I completed the 1st year in February 2011, almost a year and half ago. Over that time I’ve done a lot with what I learned. I’ve brought it to my work, applied it to the teams, programs and systems that I am responsible for, as well as created, developed and completed new projects. It’s been a very successful 16 months, and I could keep doing what I’ve been doing up until now and probably maintain a satisfying degree of success.
But it’s time for the next step. I have as long as I want before I go back and complete the second year. I could wait another 5 if I wanted to. But I want more coaching and the next level of training. And I assure you, this program is rigorous and I am scared to start it. It’s intense, it’s personal and it meets at least once if not several times each week. I am already feeling overwhelmed and dominated by the whole idea of it. But it is time for the next step. Not because I screwed up what I learned and need help to straighten it all out, but because I’ve gone a fair distance with what I know and I want to build more.
Coming here is kind of like that for me. For a long time, I went to a gym because I would screw things up, because I would blow it. I did too many things that were in the “bad” column. So I ran to the gym and got patched up.
Then things shifted. Now I go to the outside, to where I am responsible for the things I’m building in my life and work it. Push my limits, apply what I know. Then I come back inside, not to fix anything or because anything broke, but because it is time for the next step. I’ve gone a fair distance with what I can do and I want to build more. Come in, train, practice, learn. Then leave and create, develop and complete. Each step a step forward. Coming in here is a step forward, then leaving is a step forward. Coming back in is a step forward, going out is a step forward.
Learn, train, practice, apply. Make big miscalculations, huge errors in judgements, and have big successes and life altering victories. And each step a step forward.
