When I dedicate myself to a content schedule, I don't fucking miss. Well, yesterday, I forgot. I could make up all the excuses for being busy, but it doesn’t change the fact that I had shit due yesterday.
I take pride in my work. This is the service I'm offering you guys. This is what I committed to do, and it pissed me off because I think about, "I don't do anything fucking special. I just don't fucking miss." The expectation I hold for myself is high.
Other things I’ve forgotten… lunging. I was running on a hundred days straight of lunging. Just got super busy with business, my kids had games, went to sleep, woke up, and realized I didn't lunge the day before. Not because I was sore, and not because I was being lazy. It was just an unfortunate situation, and I just fucking forgot.
The biggest one, though, was the reason why the 303 days at 800 meters stopped. I drove two hours to a powerlifting meet that I hosted and competed in for my high school. I didn’t lunge that morning. Had a good meet, squatted 500, deadlifted 545, and benched 320 at 181. Good meet. Drove two hours home, dead tired from coaching and competing. I basically fell asleep and completely forgot.
There have been times throughout my career where I’ve caught myself being a little bit disorganized. I'm really organized and creative in specific areas, but I’m also extremely disorganized in the more traditional sense. I have to really fight to keep a calendar because I’ll straight-up forget shit.
Don’t get it twisted, I’m a machine. If you hang around my content for a while, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. I take this shit seriously. I'm going to make up for it today, and I'm going to let y'all know that I’m just human. It is what it is.
Here's the Deal
This is the thing. You could forget something at work. You could forget something in your personal life. You could make excuses, but it doesn’t change the fact that you missed it. The key is to minimize these occurrences.
What’s my reaction to this? Rectify the situation immediately. Make it right. Then put a system in place to make sure that the same thing doesn’t happen again. Make the process bulletproof.
