Burn the ships

Does “burn the ships” mean anything?

Got to spend a few minutes talking with a fellow (neighbor a mile away) middle-aged runner yesterday.

Years ago in our first encounter we realized we had met before and after a few minutes we came to the same conclusion. We met at a Chrysler Conference at Disney’s Contemporary Resort were he was an attendee and guess who was the keynote speaker?

Shared the retirement news and told him if he ever wanted a great speaker…

He said yes.

It’s gettin’ real.

Burn the ships.

Make it impossible to stop exercising. Burn your excuses. No turning back.
