Which Will It Be, Hero?

As we’ve discussed, Brian Cain is an inspiring human being.
 
He works with some of the greatest athletes in the world and has helped them go to the next (NEXT!) level.
 
We’ve talked about a bunch of Big Ideas from his two little fables: The 10 Pillars of Mental Performance Mastery and One Percent Better.
 
Today we’re going to revisit One Percent Better for ONE more wisdom gem.
 
But…
 
First…
 
Pop quiz!!!
 
Question: What’s 1% of a day? 
 
Do you recall?
 
(And do you recall that trying to recall something is one of the most powerful ways to dominate Learning 101? Yep.)
 
Answer: 1% of the day is 14 minutes and 24 seconds.
 
Note: I’ve changed the countdown on my Timex watch from 16 minutes and 40 seconds (which is 1,000 seconds) to 14 minutes and 24 seconds (1% of the day!!) so I can measure my meditation and deep work time blocks and, well, a bunch of stuff in 1% increments. Super fun. We’ll come back to that more as we have fun seeing if we can make at least 51% (!!!) of our days Heroically intentional.
 
For now…
 
Here’s the wisdom gem I want to focus on…
 
Brian tells us: “If you don’t have a plan, how are you getting better? The problem is when you stop getting better, you start getting bitter, and nobody likes being around people who are bitter all the time.”
 
That’s Today’s +1.
 
Are YOU getting better or are you getting bitter?
 
It’s a simple question with far-reaching impact.
 
Which will it be, Hero?
 
Here’s to continuously refining our plans to GET BETTER lest we go the wrong direction and get bitter.
 
+1. +1. +1.
 
ALL DAY.
 
EVERY DAY.
 
ESPECIALLY TODAY.
