Inevitable chaos in current era of tumultuous change ... Repost By @mckinseyco: Successful executives generally don’t have much experience of failure, so they may not really understand how to cope with it when it comes. Yet failure—or at least the dramatic upending of old formulas for success—is precisely what executives face in times of tumultuous change. The value of experience plummets. Time horizons shrivel dramatically, while mandates become muddled, ambiguous, and highly changeable. Meanwhile, fearful executives scramble to redesign their strategies again and again, but time-tested approaches to business slow down the organization’s response to external threats. Yet even in the face of these misfortunes, many executives stubbornly deny that the old ways must go.
Read our 2009 classic “A CEO’s guide to reenergizing the senior team” to learn how chief executives can help their top people work through the issues created by far-reaching change—including the powerful emotions it inevitably generates. You can find this classic at https://mck.co/CEOFear
between losing weight, gaining weight, gaining body fat, gaining muscle, losing body fat... it’s been a ride.
when i look at where i am now vs this time last year, i’m pretty proud of myself.
last year i had help with my nutrition & my training, i reached a goal, then i rebounded back to pretty much where i started.
after a couple months of being a low-key slug, i made the choice to begin again.
so, although i could be much further ahead in my goal to becoming a stronger/faster/more powerful athlete, i’m pretty pleased with where i’m at, especially because this time round to get to this place, i did it all on my own (check those #quadgains 🍗)
your goals may be completely different from mine, but i can help you reach them.
if you’re interested in online coaching, or in-gym PT, i’ve got a couple slots open.
i’ll also be starting an 8-week bootcamp block soon, so keep your eyes peeled 👀
i’ve said it before and i’ll say it 100000 more times - health & fitness is a journey.
What do YOU want, but what are you NOT willing to do to get there?
Do you want to work out in the morning, but you aren’t willing to get up that early?
Do you want to eat healthy, but you aren’t willing to learn how to cook it?
Do you want to start journaling, but you aren’t willing to try it every day?
Do you want to feel confident in your body, but you aren’t willing to dress the part?
Do you want to love the person in the mirror, but you aren’t willing to forgive them for the mistakes they’ve made?
Do you want to break that bad habit, but you aren’t really ready to give it up yet?
Did you ever think that maybe the only thing holding you back is the ‘can’t’? You are more than capable of achieving your goals; it really won’t be as hard as you think.
BUT you are more worried and afraid of leaving that comfort, that place you’ve known so well for so long, that the unknown is more terrifying than staying where you’re at.
Think about it: what do you want, and what aren’t you willing to do to get there?
Once you figure that out, then that’s where change happens
And if you're ready, then we need to talk ASAP.
No more waiting around for a better time or when you're "ready". If I waited until I was 100% ready, I never would've started.
No time will be ideal, but it’s easier to work through things than live in “what ifs” and regret.
