Is it better to go fast or to have perfect form? I love the answer I heard Coach Glassman give to this commonly asked question... When I'm meeting you for lunch, would you rather me show up to the right place or be on time? It's literally impossible to achieve your maximum potential without perfect form. Becca found a great article on this topic - check it out in her blog.

I received this photo from a friend of a friend and it made me think about the importance of attitude. Is your glass half empty or half full? Are you feeling sorry for yourself? Have excuses? Do you think you have something worthwhile to complain about? I'll guarantee that someone else has it MUCH worse than you - this Navy SEAL lost a limb... and as you can read on his message, is making a FULL recovery!
