Many amateur risk-takers incorrectly assume the way to get ahead is to make one big play with everything you’ve got—you have to bet the farm. You either end up a hero, or you go down in flames.

Not so...

Risk is not something to be carried at the end of your reach. It’s not to be set aside or left to be dealt with when you feel more prepared. It’s to be carried from your center—to be a part of all you do. It’s to be enjoyed for the challenge it offers.

The problem isn’t the thing you’re working on that isn’t fun anymore. And it isn’t the thing you think you should be working on that looks more fun. The problem is how you look at them. The problem is distraction.

Have you noticed certain occasions cause you to stop and think about your past?

As I was thinking about my last year, I realized things that happened a year ago still feel like they happened yesterday.

Time gets shorter every year, but there's something you can do about it.

On creating sticky habits:

5 years ago, I started running 3 days each week in an attempt to become a healthier, more active person. Today, that's equated into more than 4,000 miles run, a healthier body, a mission to run on every continent (that I'll be finishing soon), and a completely different perspective on life.

All from a simple resolution I made to myself. But I didn't do it the normal way. Here's how I made sure my habit would stick.

It’s easier to do big things than small ones for three important and incredibly counterintuitive reasons:

1. There is far less competition for the biggest achievements in life than the average ones.

2. More people will happily help you do something big than something small.

3. It’s easier to figure out how to do crazy things than it is figure out normal ones.

If you're A) worthless in the afternoon or B) downing shots of 5-Hour Energy every day to keep up, here's a simple alternative. It's an energy boosting tip that's worked for thousands of years. And now research shows it can actually make you smarter.

Too good to be true? It's working for me...

If you've lost steam and feel like giving up to chase something new, look within yourself first. Otherwise, you may suffer from Bone In Mouth Syndrome.
