Fail Forward



I’ve always been a book-lover, and I still am. There’s so much to learn about the world from other people’s experiences.

BUT, there’s a limit on how much books can DO for you.

Knowledge is power IF applied.

Often, we don’t value information if it’s free. That’s one reason people say a book can change your life more than reading free articles online.

It all depends on you and what you DO with the information.

I know it may be hard to believe but a simple quote can transform your life if you apply it.

Being a “word man”, I’ve always been attracted to quotes. Most of the time, they are a good reminder or a quick burst of inspiration without a long-lasting effect.

One idea I read about was “FAIL FORWARD”..

In the book “The Success Principles” by Jack Canfield, there’s a chapter dedicated to the concept of taking action even if you aren’t ready or don’t feel like you have enough information.

You get started anyway and expect to make mistakes which you will learn from. Taking action allows you real-time information that will allow you to shift and change direction when necessary.

Instead of overthinking your next move because you are afraid of failure, you get into motion and EXPECT to screw up and make mistakes.

I don’t know about you but I’ve struggled with this whole “fail forward” concept, but every time I accept and EMBRACE it I overcome obstacles and break through self-imposed plateaus.


Every diet and training program has something to teach you. You may “fail” with them but there is much potential to gain from the experience.

With that perspective you approach your nutrition plan and workout routine with curiosity, enthusiasm, and an open-mind.

It’s a learning experience. You are the participant AND the observer. Take notes on what worked and what didn’t.

Training Idea

Looking for some training ideas?

This morning’s workout was pullups superset with pushups.

10 sets total. Every set use a different grip on both the pullups and the pushups. If you can’t do pullups, do inverted rows or trx rows.

Reps I kept the same for each set but you can also use a ladder setup.

For the ladder setup you could work UP to a top set then work down, increase/decrease the reps by one or two each set.

Ladders are a great way to get in a lot of quality work in a short amount of time with limited rest periods.

Finish it up with 15-20 minutes of cardio/conditioning with the sled, jump rope or airdyne bike.
