What is an athlete?
Disciplined. Curious. Inquisitive. Striving. Excited. Happy. Sad. Exhausted. Seeking. Calm. Fulfilled. Moving. Living.
An athlete is you!
Even if you don't realize it.
The AthleteAgenda will help you remember that you were born to move, and will help you uncover your inner athlete.
This is not a Planner.
It's an Agenda.
There's a difference.
A planner helps someone make sure they get everything done that other people expect them to do.
An Agenda? Well, that's yours. The AthleteAgenda helps you set your OWN agenda, accomplish your OWN goals, and take your OWN advice.
There’s a big part of our culture that encourages crowd sourcing and googling and asking everyone else we know for advice.
How should I do this? How should I train? How many days should I train? When should I train? What should I eat? What should I wear? What is the right gear? Should I do this in the morning or the evening? If I drink a spoonful of this or eat a tablespoon of that will my life change?
We ask others because we don't trust ourselves.
We don't trust ourselves because we can't look up our own thoughts and needs on a magazine website. Our thoughts and needs and intuitions aren't in a book on the shelf at our local bookstore, so surely they can't be as valid, right?
What if those thoughts were in a book?
What if those thoughts and needs and intuitions were in a book that we wrote ourselves?
That book is the AthleteAgenda.
The AthleteAgenda is 126 pages of guided prompts for putting your thoughts and intuition and guidance on paper.
It's a way to discover your own athletic practice and set your own goals.
Whether your Agenda is freedom -
A bit of escape from the pressures of work and family or your Agenda is Adventure
and the stamina and skill it takes to do epic things like paddle the Hood River or go on a walking tour of Ireland or bike across your state or finish a triathlon, the AthleteAgenda helps you understand yourself and put yourself first.
Deep down we are all athletes because we are all programmed to want to move our bodies.
Moving our bodies makes so many things so much better.
Historically, we were hunter gatherers. We were always on the move.
And now we are not.
That means that we are losing the things that we gain from movement.
We are losing ourselves.
But we can get ourselves back.
You already know a lot of the challenges that you face and you know what some of your goals are. If it’s just you and this book - it’s not even the computer - it’s just a book - if you and this book can spend a few minutes together each day in a way that nobody else has to see —
If you can be honest with yourself and be excited with yourself in this book because you know that you’re the only one that gets to see it, then you can uncover what will really help you unleash your inner athlete.
I have tried plans and plans and plans over the years and I have worked with all kinds of professionals. I’ve taken clinics. I’ve practiced. I’ve completed some of the most intense sports events on the planet
Some of them went really well and some of them went pretty poorly. When I really started to see changes and growth in the way that I was looking for them was when I stopped listening to absolutely everybody else other than myself and I started listening and thinking about what I was doing and what actually happened during the day.
Of COURSE there is technique you can learn. At some point, though, what everyone else shows you has to become yours. YOU have to become yours.
Set your own Agenda.
Thank you for visiting my campaign page. I hope you feel inspired to live YOUR Agenda.
