STILLNESS IS DEATH


“Stillness is death.” - Ed Calderon


Ed’s background is counterintelligence, military and government work, and a bunch of other really cool stuff. He is an excellent writer and a very cool human being, and this quote from him is one of my favorites. It means so much to me.


In combat, you will die if you stop moving or engaging in the fight. Physically, our bodies will atrophy and whither away if we do not move enough. Emotionally, if I do not deal with the things in front of me, they will pile up and create a mountain of issues within my head box.


No matter what obstacles come our way, we must press on and move forward. In fitness, leadership, parenting, business, entrepreneurship, and literally anything else that matters in life; stillness is death.


Keep bobbing and weaving, keep moving, KEEP GOING!


Have a great week!
