The Sower

“I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also, much more than that. So are we all.” – James A. Baldwin

So does this pup want to become an otter, or does he just want to be a better swimmer?

Jim Rohn famously stated, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Rohn’s argument was based on the Law of Averages. Here he is demonstrating this idea using The Parable of the Sower:

The Twitter-sphere provided an interesting spin on this idea this morning. Dave Dellanave has reframed Rohn’s theory in, “10 Questions About What You Do Most“. Dellanave posits that it’s our behavior that changes the people with whom we spend our time, which in turn affects our behavior. It’s all very chicken and egg-y, though I really like Dellanave’s point of view. We foster success through our own actions, not merely via osmosis or shirttails. As he concludes in the article,

“You are the average of your 5 most common behaviors. What do you do the most?”

29 December | Monday

Warm-up | 3 rounds: (NFT)
10 balls to the wall
10 banded rows
10 OH walking lunges
10 presses against the wall

3×5 Front Press (95, 105, 115#)
3:00 Re­st

16:00 EMOM:
Odd – 3x thrusters (75#)
Even – 20 DUs

Stretch | 20:00

The five reps on the front squat were rough, but again with the “being conservative” because the hips are still sore, though feeling better. The motion of both the front squat and the thrusters felt good – at no point in either movement did I feel the bad kinda pain. Thrusters are legit. And during the DUs we got to see Ali demonstrate the “full body dry heave” (aka “how to butterfly your pull-ups”) to all the fellas on the rig. Ah, moments Instagram was made for.

I took the quiz, “What’s Your Body Type?”, from the blog and I am predominantly a mesomorph.

It says not to overdo it. Twice. That must be important.

Hit “A” Mountain with the four-legged beast this morning.

That’s the “A” up there. Bo is staring at me because I bribe him with treats. Good boy.
