Relaxing Music for the week: Breathe: Liquid Mind (11:44) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdVTNzg6RuE
Question: Which of your personal strengths would you like to build on in the future?
Answer: I would like to take my self-discipline for working out and have the same focus how I spend my days, especially at work. It’s easy for me to get distracted and NOT focus on the things that matter; but when it comes to my workouts, nothing gets in the way. I’m disciplined to get up EARLY in the morning (4am on long walk mornings, 5 am on indoor rides during the week, add an additional hour of sleep for weekends) and despite the early time and the intensity of the workouts, it’s part of my daily routine. For the most part, I’ve kept up with this blog for a year, which is amazing to me that (1) I missed only 5 or 6 days from January 1, 2021 to today, and (2) that people care about what I had to say, with a few sharing comments, either posting on the blog or send me a private email. Knowing that 2022 will bring on some interesting changes, I’m excited to see how I can become more disciplined in what I do, especially with expanding Life Design Catalyst work.
I know this posting is late, but I just finished reading an enlightening article by Eric Barker about the “midlife crisis.” In the article, he shares that there is such a thing as a midlife crisis (occurs, on average, at age 46); he also shares some ideas on how to get through the crisis. Read the article here:

My interest in the article? Because the number strategy he suggests – purpose and meaning. Yeah, a shocker, right? Stop thinking about yourself and your own happiness and start focusing on others and on doing stuff that matters. So if you’re suffering a midlife crisis, stop thinking about yourself and your woes and focus your efforts on what you can do for others. It’s as simple as that!
