It was an honor to lead 22 men including our FNG “Gibbler” (dude has 6 kids – hence the Full House reference). I expected good numbers after the social media chatter yesterday, but 22 was beyond my expectations – as was the mumblechatter. I always enjoy when the PAX runs their mouths, it  reminds us that we all desire community with the guys. That’s the main reason I continue to come back. You guys make it fun.

We reviewed the 3 Fs today in detail – mostly for our FNG but also as a reminder that this thing will die if we don’t pour into it. We aren’t just a workout group. If that’s what you’re looking for, Orange Theory meets one lot over. We are a leadership development organization, disguised as a workout group. That being said, fellas – it’s time for some more guys to step up and take the leadership reigns. Site Q positions are open. Take on the challenge to make us all better. If you have questions or concerns, speak to Schrute, Bill Nye, or any guy who has done it before. You guys are what makes this thing work. If we aren’t accelerating, we’re decelerating.

I want to leave you with a quote I heard recently.

Treat a man as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he could be, and he will become what he should be.”

Men, you are leaders. It’s time to tap into the potential you have. Step up and lead us to the next great thing. If you’re waiting to be asked, then consider this a formal request. If you’re waiting for a good time, there’s no better time then the present. If you have concerns, talk it through with me. No more excuses. Be who you could be.
