I’ll be straight up with you. I’m a normal guy and I enjoy doing what most probably consider “normal guy stuff”. I like trucks, jeeps, cars, mountain biking, working out, having nice stuff, occasionally drinking a few beers with family and friends and enjoying great food.
I don’t have a degree in fitness, psychology, or mental health and wellness or any kind of formal schooling in that area. I do have experience in going through a lot- in what most would consider a short time.
I’ve struggled with different coping mechanisms over the years, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve hurt people, made bad investments, and started heading down a path that didn’t have much of a promising future.
One day I woke up…. I had a switch close in my brain and thought, what am I doing? I made a choice that day to not let those mistakes define me. Instead I chose to learn from them.
As soon as that switch flipped I knew I had to make so many changes in my life. I had to form new habits. It seemed like an endless task.
That's when I came up with the idea for attacking my day 4% at a time. Devoting only 1 hour (4% of 24 hrs) of my day EVERY DAY to making myself a better person. As the days went by the % went up automatically. I didn't have to even think about it.
That 1 hour that I HAD to do turned into 1 hour that I GOT to do. And soon I found myself striving to be the best version of myself all the time.
I’m nowhere near where I want to be in my life- understand that life is a constant battle, a never-ending trial and a competition that will never be easy.
Life is really good at knocking you down. The most important thing is learning why you fell, and to always get back up.
Change your life 4% at a time.

You deserve the best. That isn’t selfish, it’s selfless. Without you feeling like the best version of you- mentally and physically how can you give your family, friends and those in your life the only version of you they deserve?
When we choose to put off the things that we've been meaning to do or meaning to start until tomorrow because hell- what’s one more day? When we choose to drive by the gym on the way home because you worked late or had a bad day. When you walk by that piece of trash on the ground or the cart in the parking lot. When we choose to eat the food because ehh it’s not that bad for you... When you let that person(s) in your life influence you to gossip, or allow their negativity to get into your head and pollute you with their cancerous negativity.
Deep down we all know the difference between good and bad- between what we know we should do- and whats easier. That little voice or gut feeling. 99/100 it's right. Each time you go against that voice or feeling you compromise yourself. You chip away at what makes you a good person- you choke out the voice that always knows what's best for you.
Your thoughts and your actions become feelings, and feelings become moods. If you let a mood go on long enough it becomes a personality(it's science google it). Are you willing to let bad habits, someone or something negatively define who you are as a person?
Will you choose the path of the average and the lazy? By always looking for the easy way- by giving into negative feelings and emotions every day? Or will you choose the path less traveled? The path of hard work, dedication, reward, positive feelings and emotions. Only you can change your life.
There are 24 hours in a day. 1 hour of your day is equal to approximately 4%.
Let's start working together by devoting 4% of your day... just 1 hour of your day will ultimately set you apart from everyone else.
Each and every day you choose what to do with your time. Choose wisely.
