My Karate Instructor has a favorite phrase: "How you do anything is how you do everything". How you practice is how you will perform when the test comes.
It is true in martial arts training, and even more so in our business life and personal life.
After a talk at karate about the reason for joining karate got me thinking about why we started our businesses or our jobs.
Why did you sign up for karate? Was it just to achieve to goal of the black belt? Or was it for fun and exercise?
And in your business. Why did you start? What was the passion that started you? Have you lost the real reason you started?

I was thinking about habits. And I know I talk a lot about habits and systematization and all that. But one of the things that really occurred to me was the fact that our habits are not limited to just us. There are generational effects...
I was listening to a presentation by Garrett White, Wake Up Warrior, you may have heard of him. But he was talking about how, you know, if you're like intensely overweight, which I was, I was like at 36% body fat, it was pretty terrible. And he was saying how there's so many of us that our habits are affecting our children. And we can literally have gun to the head of our child. If it was a physical gun, they'd throw us in jail, but instead, you're driving through McDonald's, right? It kinda clarified something for me that I thought about many times is that the habits that we have don't end with us, right? They go on beyond us, our children and people who look to us as role models. Our habits effect us. My son, my boys are both at home and I see the thing, these habits and these little quirks of character that I have and I see it reflected in them. And it's both gratifying and scary, being completely honest. 'Cause there are some things that I do that are fantastic and there are other things that are not. I would love to say that my life is perfect and you just need to be like dad, right? It's just not the case. I was looking at myself at the end of last year, specifically with my health and weight. I'd gone to my doctor's appointment, to my physical. It was the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, actually, and I was over 290, right. Now, I'm pretty tall, but I'm not that tall. And I realized that this has got to change and I was asking my doctor, you know, what diet I should do. We kinda agreed, he said that the keto diet is the way to go, so I started that Tuesday, Tuesday after Thanksgiving. I've been absolutely solid on it since then. As of yesterday, I'm down 40 pounds, I feel so much better. I'm looking and my son, basically that little mini-me. I saw that he's definitely not fat, but we've gotta grow into that, the weight there. But I realized that it was my habits, my same eating habit, my same habits, that were forming him and were having an effect on his life. When Garrett White said that, it really hit me that my choices, the choices that I'm making right now, have an effect and it's beyond me. So when I'm trying to find the desire and the will power and the motivation to really make change in my life, and I tell this to everybody that I work with for goal setting, is you need to have here's why I want the goal, but also, here's what I don't want. So loosing weight, it's not just about that I wanna be skinnier, better looking and all of that. It's that I'm setting a precedent. I'm setting a standard for everybody that I interact with and it's going to go beyond me. It's not just about how do I feel and how is it affecting me. It's what's the generational impact of that. And I look at even my upbringing with my parents. What are my thoughts on money? What are my thoughts on success? What are my thoughts on work ethic? All of these different things that flavor all of my interactions. They flavor my business, they flavor my parenting style, all of these things that I learned from watching and you know full well, if you have children, that they do what you do, not what you say.
I am beginning the last stage of my training before I get my black belt (technically Midnight Blue). Rather than just write my essay on What Tang Soo Do (my martial art) means to me, I want to give more...
