Category: Reflection


As most of you already know, I write about maximizing experiences.  To grasp every opportunity present allowing yourself to experience each moment and make it your own.  Is this possible?  I think, yes.

We start by giving us a name, SanityFS athletes.  Our discipline is in the art of MME or Multiple Mixed Experiences.  The name implies that there will be several happenings constantly around you.  The task is to be mindful of them and make them possibilities for you.  But first, beginning with owning one thing each for mind and body.  Your mind must be open and your body must be adaptable.  In other words, remain fluid.

One’s fluidity is the ability to hold a suppleness.  No additional stress, no further tension.  This requires a very different intent to your  daily exercise.  A coach prescribes an exercise for very specific reasons.  The prescription must fit the demand of the goal and be able to adapt to when the goal is asked to change.  In science, we have cycles, in layman’s terms we have short and long term goals.  For me, it is a balance between both, with an emphasis on an ability to change the short term to fit the long term.  That is a SanityFS athlete.  An ability to recognize a distraction and react accordingly, so to allow for forward movement.  The language between the mind and body is always effective and efficient.  Time no longer gets wasted.  It is spent on a maximal return for each investment.

As a coach, I would suggest to recognize that there are, and will be, distractions around you.  Some are necessary and still many are not.  Which one is which is for you to decide.  What was the long term goal?  Are you still heading in that direction.  Recognize that the environment you are within must:

a. reflect you

and b. support the direction you are going

if either of these are missing, we lose efficiency and gain distractions.  Like seeks like, but first be cognizant of what you like, and obviously don’t like.  What are we here to enjoy?  The open road ahead or the madness of would of, could of and should of.

Effective relationships

Have you ever stopped to think about the friends you currently have in your life?  Have they been there for five, ten or possibly  20 years?  Do you find that a conversation with them creates an opportunity to effectively up your mind sight, and  provides you with the weaponry to either begin or stay on your purposeful path?  If so, consider yourself lucky.  If not, consider yourself lucky.  Why are both lucky?  Because now you know and possess an opportunity to elicit an effective change.

Effective relationships are the foundation of yielding fruitful possibilities.  They each have their own unique flavor and the potential to build, well let’s just say it, anything.  Yes, anything can be possible.  So long as you are mindful of the circle you keep yourself within.  If the circle supports you, bravo.  If the circle distracts you, move a long.  Time is of the essence and the end of today is one less day you have to be extraordinary in.  My SanityFS friends are friends of mine.  Get with the program and in time, friends of yours.

Previously I wrote a post to briefly explain a need in rewording the saying, People can’t change.  I stated, One can not force a change because life will take care of that on it’s own.  Having said that, I’m here to offer you your first opportunity for a life change.  You interested?  Here it is:

How do you want to do today?  For example:

6:00 a.m. Wake up

6:15 a.m.  Shower

7:00 a.m.   Work

1 :00 p.m.  Lunch

6:30 p.m.   Workout

8:00 p.m.   Dinner

10:00 p.m.  Sleep

This may be a typical day for someone, however, not truly answering how you want to genuinely experience today.

Another example:

5:45 a.m.   Wake up

I will spend 15 minutes doing something that will add to my  dinner experience tonight.

6:00 a.m.  15 minutes of Yoga

6:15 a.m.   Shower

6:45 a.m.  Park further and take 15 minutes to walk into work (the goal is to experience  fresh air, new faces, something different)

7:00 a.m.  Work

1:00 p.m.  Lunch (w/a vital friend)

6:30 p.m.  Workout (Solo mission. Take some time to reflect on your day)

8:00 p.m.  Dinner (Yay, been looking forward to this since you woke up this morning.  What did you decide to experience?)

10:00  p.m.  Sleep  (Wow, what a day)

Which day would you prefer to add to your life?  Now I ask again, How do you want to do today?  I’ll take memorable experiences coupled with good conversation, sweat, and laughter please.

6 Month Reflection

I have to admit I am a bit behind.  I’m actually reflecting on the last 9 months, however, will now make it a goal to do so every six months.

Over the last six months many doors have closed and others have opened.  Yes, a bit cliche and yet still holds true.  After selling off the shares of my previous company (door closed) I restarted over again and moved to a fitness start up company with one hell of a philosophy (door opened).  We are now 9 months in and after being in the fitness business for almost 20 years, I know when I see something good.  And can now simply do the work to make it great.  How am I doing it?  Easy.  I did one thing.  I simplified, and allowed myself to be great.

Things have the potential to be good.  It takes you to make them great.  We can all spend time preparing, studying, over thinking, etc and with that, stall our greatness.  WAIT!  I am not saying one shouldn’t prepare themselves for a given opportunity.  I’m saying that greatness comes when others can also experience it with you.  Google, Disneyland, dinner at your favorite sushi bar, cocktails w/friends.  These are all examples of a good idea becoming great because there are others present to share in the experience.

So, to reflect on the last 9 months in very simple language:

1.  Know my goal

2.  Vocalize my goal

3.  Recognize the distractions and remove them quickly

4.  Always ask for feedback if none has been given

5.  Remain flexible to accommodate any necessary change

To our Sanity,

Daniel J Sanidad
