Blah, blah, blah?

Blah, blah, blah?


Dream Big.  Get There.  Stay There.

That’s what Lane 8 is about.   Staying there.

Ran into a Father of my son’s classmate, at the gym yesterday.

I asked, “What motivates you”?

He replied, with an apparent wisdom, that he has found it more difficult, now that he’s almost 30, to stay in shape and keep his weight ideal.

Please forgive me for thinking this, but all I could think of was, “You really think that you’re going to stay fit and at an ideal weight for the rest of your life”?

“Dude”, I wanted to say, “You have no idea what is ahead of you, but I can predict one thing for sure.  If you think it’s hard now, imagine it 10 years from now, or 20 years from now when you’re almost 50”.

How do I know?

Because I turn 50 in three weeks.  I’ve got 20 years of “wisdom and mistakes” on him.  That’s how I know.

Wisdom comes from experience, and experience comes from making mistakes.

I should be the wisest man on Earth, eh?  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
