Opposed to Doing the Opposite

Every Wednesday afternoon, I take the kids for a nice long bike ride to a playground, in which we play Michael Myers tag, followed by the ride back to my truck.

It’s always one of the highlights of my week.

When we are there, Emma is scaling the steps and slides, Tank and Brax jump off heights up to 7 feet high and my phone is nowhere to be found.

All opposites when you compare how most operate. When I go to crowded playgrounds, I see parents trying to stop their children from exploring and pushing their limits, I see parents on their phone, there in body, but not in mind.

And I just shake my head. It’s not out of judgment, well maybe a little bit, but more so out the missed opportunity to have a memorable experience.

A friend recently remarked that she couldn’t believe how laid back we are with the kids. I said, ‘Listen, in life, do the opposite of the majority and you’ll be right on target’.

This has never failed me in fitness, nutrition, writing, business or parenting.

Just some food for thought.

And if you want to see how I apply this to my Coaching in the Panda, follow the directions below.
