“When you have one foot in the past, and one in the future, you piss on the present.”” – Dan Harris
It’s tempting to daydream about the future, and it’s far too easy to dwell on the past. Being present, here and now, is often the most challenging of the three.
When we think of the underlying reason why one would study the past and plan for the future, we can come to the agreement there’s a singular purpose – to make today our very best. There is never a reason not to pursue that aim, well knowing that today could very well be our last.
Happiness is not something we postpone for the future; it is something we design for the present.

Focus on the 3 dips today: no more than 6″ dip in the push press, hinging dip to send the kettlebell back not down, landing in a 1/4 squat dip on the box as opposed to bottoming out in the squat. Using weights and rep ranges that will earn us 8-10 rounds in the workout.
