Make Time to Live – #maketimetolive

Gopro downwind

This is my thinking space, going 20km/h on a swell in the ocean, it gives me the clearest of perspective. Everything is just more simple, clear and precise! On Monday I had a afternoon meeting and knew I wasn’t able to train so I moved stuff around to do a downwind over lunch in some nice wind.

The clarity of mind in the ocean got me thinking.

2014 has been a very busy year of racing, coaching, travelling and running races. I love the challenge of doing difference things every day and juggling portfolio’s which all have their own sets of deadlines. Every now and again I realise, I also need come up for air and have a look around.

I have found the work load and chaos of life some times distracts me and refocus now and again is always a win.

I want to challenge myself to do two think in the last 6 weeks of the year.

  • Make time to do the thinks that make me tick, the things I love, the things I want to be doing every day.
  • Make sure I appreciate them when I am at play, never take life for granted.

I think these two things can be a applied to anyone, anywhere and anytime, so I thought it would be cool to challenge you to do the same and we can keep each other accountable.

Doing something that makes you tick is not always as easy as it sounds, work and family life can drain the time and energy to make these things happen daily so you need to make time. If it just waking up 20min earlier for a jog round the block to kick off some running you really enjoy, it’s worth the effort.

For this means more downwind’s, here is a clip from Monday, who wouldn’t want to make time for this?

The second part is to make sure you and I are both making the most of it. Simply post about what you have been up to with the #maketimetolive and I will go through them every week and share some of them on the blog too keep us motivated.
