“Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it.” – Oprah Winfrey

I wholeheartedly agree with Oprah for several reasons:
  • Running is a great metaphor for life because like life it requires a consistent commitment from you to be successful.
  • Running is a great metaphor for life because it demands physical and psychological fortitude to maintain your pace.
  • Running is a great metaphor for life because it requires that you make space away from the computer, the television, the Internet, and the emails.
  • Running creates space for you to think, to listen, and to search your soul—all prerequisites to living well
From my own experience as a long-term runner, I’ve observed five lessons that are critical to living your life to the fullest.
The Runner’s Five Lessons for Life
  • Lesson #1: Set Your Goals
  • Lesson #2: Pace Yourself
  • Lesson #3: Partner with Others
  • Lesson #4: Measure Your Results
  • Lesson #5: Go Farther

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2015.

Over the course of this year, I have written many blog posts and recorded many podcasts in an effort to add value to my audience. As I look back over the year, it is interesting to see which posts and podcasts most resonated with you.

When I look at them it doesn’t take long to discern an underlying theme: “Commitment”.

I love the way that  Lebron James, the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) most dominant player today, talks about commitment.

“Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend? To being trustworthy? To being successful? How committed are you to being a good father, a good teammate, a good role model? There’s that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not?”

I love this quote because it speaks to the multi-dimensionality of commitment. Commitment must be balanced. As James says, yes there is a commitment to winning. But, there is simultaneously a commitment to being a good person. Yes, there is a commitment to success. But,  ultimately genuine success can only be measured in  relationships.
