I didn’t prepare a WOD today but my M sent me a podcast yesterday entitled “The Paradox if Progress”. While there were numerous salient points for me. Most applicable to me was his point about the priorities we have. We get so consumed with how we look, what we drive, where we live and other markers of status that we often forget why we have those things. We forget what’s important in life and what makes that all possible. Whether Christian or not, it’s important to realize that someone or something above ourselves aided us along the way. We work hard to make progress. We make progress to make us happy. We want happiness to enjoy our lives. The paradox comes when we’ve achieved all these things, we often forget how we got there and who helped us get there. So while we think we are making progress in life, we are actually regressing as people. I encourage everyone to sit back and appreciate how we got to where we are and give credit where credit is due.  


Surprisingly low MC today. I think we were all disturbed at the prospect of Iron Butt posting in a speedo on Saturday.
