Set Goals…And Fail

It’s no secret that I set some ridiculously lofty goals for myself.  I don’t know any other way to set goals.  I do the same thing every single year.   Some example goals include; Deadlift 600 pounds Start a business Not spill something on myself at dinner every single night Wear multi-colored outfits (Jess keeps me in check on this one)   How I WOULD dress Every year I fail to achieve several of my goals.   I was actually expressing my frustration to one of my mentors the other day about how I...

If it worked to get up to that weight, what's another 100 pounds? Today, I pulled 330lbs. x 10 reps and it felt solid.  It also puts me right on track to achieve my quest for 600.
