Goals and Toilet Seats

Definite food for thought.

If the title suggests to you that this might be an article about squatting, well, you'd be wrong. Surprisingly, Dan John writes about goal setting. And toilet seats.
There are a couple of pieces of wisdom that jump out from this article, the most critical one - to me at least - is a quote from the One Minute Manager :
Look at your goals. Look at your behaviors. Does your behavior match your goals?

Definite food for thought. Speaking of food, if the Velocity Diet stuff got you intrigued, you might like to go back to Chris Shugart's original article. It's interesting stuff.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
And if you've already got one - or are looking for another type of device - swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.
