Hell is meeting the version of yourself that you could have become. (ie – seeing your potential after you already lived your life when it is too late). Anything you can do to minimize the gap between what you do become and what you could have become is a good use of resources (time, money, etc).
This is a paraphrase (from memory) of something Tobi Lutke shared on this podcast. I believe the description of hell is something he attributed elsewhere, but I didn’t catch to whom.
Sometimes what is tough to do, the struggles we face, the failures we accomplish – that’s what leads us closer to closing this gap.
Your athletic goals help close this gap.
How well do your other life choices help to close this gap?
