COT : Spoke on Durability – it’s what we do when we come out in the early morning and only the Q knows what is in store for the day. We put ourselves in unusual circumstances to test our mettle.
IronPax tweeted this quote and it stuck w/ me all week :
“Durability is the physical and emotional toughness that is fostered through deliberate exposure to hardship and chaos. Durability, like everything else, is a condition that is either accelerating or decelerating.”
So, just like our fitness and family relationships, we don’t coast. If we think we’re coasting, we are actually getting weaker, losing focus, decelerating. We have to continue to push forward and advance ourselves in all aspects of life, including our durability. /Kodak Out!
