Hey, hey. That is a wrap on 42 days straight of looking through the Kenzai Mind lens. It is a great course. The lessons hum and Patrick's drawings were a nice departure from the usual photos.

Here are my take aways from the course:

1. Ward you work out every day. That is pretty incredible.
2. Ward you read every lesson on this program every day for 42 days. Sometimes you fall behind. Not this time.
3. Ward you were reminded that you are not your thoughts. You are something else altogether.
4. Ward you didn't do real well with those longer sits. What's your hurry, man?
5. Ward you liked meditating with your eyes open and not leaning on mantra. That was a complete surprise!

As I look ahead, I'm keen to continue to sit. For ten minutes a day. I just like lots of stuff and am not willing to devote more time right now. But that could change.

If you are thinking about Mind, take the course! If you are looking for a program that gives you permission to choose your own exercise adventures, take the course! If meditation scares the hell out of you, take the course!

Cheers.

What's next: Finishing the back half of Iron with Thomas Doyle and maybe rocking Beach Body concurrently. Also....eyeing up a Marathon in December. Whoa!!!!!!

      Congratulations Ward. Sounds like you further enhanced an already beautiful mind. Iron, Beach Body, and a marathon? You’re operating on a new level bro. Keep inspiring!

        Ward great write up of what you personally got out of Mind. Another little wellbeing tool tuned up and ready to be added into your life rhythm and next Kenzai adventure.

          I've been thinking Mind isn't for me...but your blog makes it more intriguing. Maybe I'll hop on the June start to conquer a program this summer...usually a challenging time to fit something in.
          Thanks for always leading by example!

            Now that you are a Jedi Knight a Marathon makes total sense. But first: Mankini Body! DO IT DO IT!

              Mind! it is easier to keep going with something small than recommit again and again.

              you are not your thoughts - great ☁️reminder.

              congratulations man! ✨💫

                Great takeaways. Second half of Iron, beach body and a marathon. Sounds like a plan. Training for a marathon and Iron....what kind of body does that give you?! We’ll need the mankini shot!

                      Great post per always. The sentiment behind your #3 take away blows my mind almost everyday like a quadruple rainbow.
