In the last few +1s, we spent some time talking about how to win the game of life by focusing on WHAT’S IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW.
I’d like to continue that discussion. And, this time, I’d like to invite my friend Sean Casey back to the party so he can share HIS insanely (!) inspiring take on the subject.
As we’ve discussed, Sean was voted the friendliest guy in baseball. They nicknamed him “The Mayor.” He’s now part of Major League Baseball’s Emmy-winning showMLB Tonight.
He also has his own podcast. It’s appropriately called “The Mayor’s Office.”
Recently, he had a guy on his show who was also a fan of Heroic. They had a little chat about the app.
Sean WENT OFF about how the app has changed his life. It’s probably the best overview of the app (especially for sports fans!) I’ve ever seen.
It’s so good that I want to share it here now. So, let’s head to The Mayor’s Office for a special field trip. I’ll see you in less than two minutes!!
If that doesn’t fire you up, I don’t know what will!! Haha!!
That’s Today’s +1.
Here’s to making the game of life Heroically fun!!
As always… Not someday…
P.S. Here’s the transcript from that segment above! !!
I look at it this way, and Brian Johnson talks about this. If you, me and Chinch went out and played baseball right now, and we were on this open field and I pitch to Tim, Tim crushes one, Chinch goes and runs and gets it. We come back. We're like, “yeah, this is fun!”
Well, that's not as much fun as if we take the foul lines and we run 'em down each line and we put foul poles up. We put a 330’ sign in the corner, 385’, 410’. We put a fence up that says, if you hit it over this fence, you get one point. If guys are on base, you get three, four, you know, 2, 3, 4 points.
This guy, we're gonna put a mound up with a rubber. It's gonna be 60 feet, six inches away because that seems fair. You're gonna throw it to me. We're gonna compete. We're gonna get after it.
Holy [edited]. Here we go. This is a ton of [edited] fun. Right?
I think of that as Heroic.
Heroic ismyfoul lines…
It’s my game! It's my game of life.
So I line up, what are my routines? What are my habits? What am I gonna do to win my morning? What am I gonna do at night to get better sleep? What time do I need to get upstairs? What book am I gonna read? How am I gonna serve my kids today? How am I gonna serve my buddies today?
And all of a sudden at the end of the day I go, man, that was a great game today. Holy [edited].
You know what I mean? It's like, you start creating your own game because you've created the boundaries and that Heroic app…whenyou're shooting that arrow into your targets, it's a dopamine. It’sjust like, man, this is so freaking awesome.
And all of a sudden you start to realize, wow, you've created some habits and routines that is giving you the life that you've always wanted. Let's go, let's go.
