I started a challenging new reading schedule today anchored by new supporting habits to keep it going. I will read 48 interesting and useful books that I haven't already read. I'll finish reading the last book on the list on Saturday, December 16, 2017.

Here are the primary tools I'm using to do it:

For 2017, I've set new, tougher fitness goals for myself. The first goal is to add 25 lbs of lean muscle. The second goal is to maintain the muscle density gains I achieve with the the first goal without adding fat.

When the first goal is completed this year on Wednesday, July 12, 2017, I will weigh 254 lbs and have a much more definitive look. When I compete the second goal on December 1st 2017, I'll weigh somewhere between 245 to 254 lbs and my bodyfat percentage will be between 7% and 15%.

Here's the plan I've adapted and made my own to get me there:

Here's the framework for success I began 2017 with and I'm sticking with it throughout the year. In various ways, these concepts are at work in my roles, goals, and daily agenda. I call them “The 19 Synergistic Concepts”. They are:

A. Seven Major Values

1. Life in abundance.
2. Freedom and Liberty in abundance.
3.The pursuit of happiness.
4. Wealth in abundance.
5. Wisdom.
6. Imagination, Beauty, and Art.
7. Security.

B. 12 Key Principles (methods)

1. Proper Thinking.
2. Engage in Continuous Improvement
3.Take Massive Action.
4. Maintain an incredible work ethic.
5. Maintain and communicate an awesome Grand Vision.
6. Fully embrace entrepreneurship.
7. Systematically but sensibly break comfort level
8. Cultivate & use creativity.
9. Benevolence
10. Courage
11. Credibility
12. Discipline

C - The Mission

To be my best in all the roles I fill and in all the goals I set to the fullest extent enabled by God. Be of the greatest effectiveness and be of the greatest service in the lives of the people I love and cherish, in my own life, in the causes I care about, and ultimately - to the extent that I can, exemplify the glory of God through my own example.

D. The Prayer

Lord please bless my work and let not my labors be in vain. In all that I do, I pray that your will shall be done and not my own.

The Lord was victorious in my life in 2016. 2016 started with me in prayer. I can't honestly say that I fully understand God's plan but now I do know for certain that Prayer Changes Things.

I ended 2016 400% up in income. I am extraordinarily grateful for that and all the other material gains the Lord made possible as well as for the additional resources and capabilities I acquired.

I've taken on two cities in two different states in the year since leaving New York. I've notched a couple of #1 worldwide rankings at work competing in a field of thousands. I've picked up more management experience and literally got paid to learn how to run a multi-million dollar business. I am so honored by all the coaching and training I received and for all the people that provided it.

There were many lessons learned throughout the year (and the lead-up to the year) which I documented somewhat in my #RockStar2016 blogging series. There is just so much material, starting with “Doing The Opposite* in the seven day experiment that I wrote about. I don't think just blogging about the experience does it justice (though I will go back and edit it and drop in what happened in Oct, Nov, Dec). As my new friends tell me, ‘there's a book in there Tim!”.

I feel like I left it all out on the field in 2016, but what I value most and I believe where the victory can be found is in that I learned to put my faith and trust in God.

2017 is here now and my spirit is strong and I am in good health. God willing, in 2017 we will pursue an even more ambitious agenda that we have developed which will surpass the rate of progress we achieved last year by a very significant margin. All the best to you and yours in the new year!

Here's the official trailer to The Magnificent Seven. If I were to bet, I'd say it's going to be very good and I want to see it because Denzel Washington (John Q, Training Day, Malcolm X) is starring in it.

Denzel is an Oscar Award winning actor, so he can be picky about his roles. He sensibly doesn't allow himself to be in a bad movie. This usually results in a good movie viewing experience for me at the theater.

Another reason I want to see this movie is so that I can get a lengthy look at a recent example of the cinematography used behind the scenes (literally) to produce this modern remake of The Magnificent Seven. The director, Antoine Fuqua, is said to have pledged to shoot this movie using an anamorphic setup.

Interestingly, at 19 seconds into this trailer, there is a gorgeous lens flare that shows up where the scene is shot with the actors moving around in the street (apparently in the evening) and the sun is low in the sky.

The scene is sort of dark but the sun, being the very bright light source that it is, peeks over the top of the buildings in the scene and is briefly the brightest object on-screen -and a subsequent lens flare is thrown across everything else in the scene. Very nice effect. Movie people probably pay to add lens flares like that in post production. I wonder if that one is there because of the anamorphic equipment/technique in use?

Anyway, The Magnificent Seven is out as of today September 23rd, 2016 and I'll probably check it out. Based on the casting, the director in charge, and the interesting cinematography used to make it, I'd say this movie is probably worth spending the money to go see it on the big screen.
