Hey everyone! I’m beginning to post my weekly newsletter here. To get this sent directly to your inbox each Sunday, please click here. Let’s make this the greatest week in the history of weeks.
As you may have seen on Twitter on Instagram, I had quite the week. My brother, Ryan Warner and I tackled an absolutely insane task: 30 miles, 65 obstacles up a mountain in Aspen, CO. I have more details coming in a long blog next week, but long story short: we didn’t make it. It was the hardest thing we’ve ever done and we came up short.
But holy smokes did we feel the love before, during and after the race. Thank you all for that support. It means more than you know. Ryan and I broke it all down in a pre and post-race podcast that you can check here or on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.
Have yourself an excellent weekend and get ready to kick ass this week.
Here are the 6 things to check out this week:
- In sales and struggling with objections? My most recent article on this topic just got picked up by the Salesforce Quotable blog.
- I’ve been enjoying reading The Change Agent by Damon West. This is an intriguing story of an All-American guy that got lost in addiction, got sentenced to life in prison and is now sharing an inspirational message with the world. Coming soon to the podcast.
- If you’ve ever seen the documentary Free Solo, you’ll enjoy this episode of Rich Roll’s podcast with Jimmy Chin and Chai Vasarhelyi. If you’re looking for a new documentary, I’d highly encourage One Strange Rock, hosted by Will Smith.
- This is a brutal, lengthy blog but it’s my favorite of the week: 6 harsh truths that will make you a better person.
- After the grueling race and travel this weekend, I felt like shit. If you feel like that too, you may want to read James Clear’s article on how to get motivated when you don’t feel like it.
- I’m posting more than ever on Instagram. If you don’t yet, I’d love if you gave my page a quick follow :).
