“That’s one reason I created the Cookie Jar. We must create a system that constantly reminds us who the fuck we are when we are at our best, because life is not going to pick us up when we fall. There will be forks in the road, knives in your fucking back, mountains to climb, and we are only capable of living up to the image we create for ourselves. Prepare yourself!” – David Goggins from his book Can’t Hurt Me.
The Cookie Jar, a container of accomplishments kept in Goggins’ mind, is pulled from when the going gets tough.
Brilliant concept that we all could use… whether running a 100 mile ultra marathon with 3 days training… or in the workplace.
See you on the journey…

What if the things you want, aren't really things at all?
A Michigander living between Charlotte, NC...the mountains of VA and wanderlust (50 countries and counting!)… I am a professional coach, consultant and writer.
These musings are...mostly... about my sometimes futile quest towards a more minimalist lifestyle while still extracting every last ounce of juice from this life.
Less stuff. Less obligation. Less competition. Less keeping up with the Jones's. Less work. Less worry. Less to plan for. Less stress about trivial things. Less.
Chasing less. One thing at a time.
