    Just a reminder. While negative outcomes obviously drive learning and training more, we shouldn't ignore the "free lessons" that we get everyday.

    Those times when nothing goes badly, but had anything changed even ever so slightly it could have been horrible.

    I had one of those yesterday. It's not even worth explaining because literally nothing happened other than a short, uncomfortable encounter between my wife, myself and a stranger, but it's all I'm thinking about today.

    If things had happened differently I would have been behind the ball and playing catch up when I likely wouldn't have had much time to. I realized it instantly in the moment and still feel sick at my stomach when I think about it and what the price for that lesson could have been.

    On the positive side, I won't have to look for motivation for training for a while, it's front and center in my mind.

    Remember to recognize and appreciate those "free lessons" and motivations. Don't let them go to waste.

    I call them “freebies”... and they count!
