What we can control is our performance and our execution, and that’s what we’re going to focus on.
Bill Belichick

Execute can be a very emotive and negatively charged verb. So many pivotal moments in human history have been punctuated by the termination of individuals. Whether judicial or illegal, ending someone’s life is rarely dispassionate, emotions most often run wild in one way or another. This is probably a good thing. If, for whatever reason, we kill without feeling, a little bit of our humanity dies too.

However, I don’t wish to linger on such destructive execution hear. Far better to look at the positively charged meaning instead. To execute is to act, to do, to perform, to complete. It is all about getting the job done. Unlike its other meaning, this is all about progress, impetus, action and creation. How can that be a bad thing?

In actual fact, it is indeed the execution of a project that people most often struggle with. The outcome of anything you take upon yourself to accomplish can never be certain a priori. Perhaps, it’ll turn out great, but what if it doesn’t? To never fail, simply do nothing. Apathy, inaction and procrastination are such comfortable and reliable bedfellows. This is not the way forward!

In this section of my blog, I want to talk about all the real, tangible things I have done. Obviously, the tangible results of my writing or invention are catalogued elsewhere, but here I want to concentrate on the physical, the physiological, the geographic. Whether it be physical acts of dance and sport, wisdom discovered through friendships I have forged or spectacles witnessed when traveling and adventuring, this is all about the real world. Not only was all this stuff great fun for me to experience, but I also hope it might inspire you to get out there and be a part of it all.

All round healthy
