    Mondays with Mac: Finish Strong

    November 30, 2009 2651 Views

    Tuesday, December 1st marks the beginning of the end of 2009. This is the last month of the year... and if you are anything like me, you are looking at the last chance of the year to do certain things. It may be your last chance this year to meet your financial goal, to visit your family, or to attain your fitness goal. No matter what, the point is that the clock is ticking and time is running out in 2009!

    We definitely know the feeling here at Simple Truths. That is why this week I am enthusiastically making it Finish Strong week. To quote career collegiate football Lou Holtz, "How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser." Though we are past the second half mark, his point remains true: in order to finish a winner, you need to Finish Strong. We are happy to share the journey to the end of 2009 with you, and (as always) our goal is to help you meet yours.


    In Finish Strong by Dan Green, Dan shares a story about Paul Hamm, the U.S.A. gymnastics competitor at the 2004 Olympics. Experts predicted that Paul would be a runaway winner in his event, but that predictions was severely doubted when he hit the vault too hard and tumbled into the judges on his right side like a bowling ball into pins. His rank dropped from first to 12th place. However, Paul proved the predictions right when he came back to win the gold medal in the men's all-around by 0.012 points, making him the first U.S. man to ever win the Olympic title. Despite early losses, Paul Hamm finished strong! Here's a video of his performance on the high bar:


    Through this week, we will share more stories, quotes, and tips to help you finish strong this year. So tell me, which activities will you finish strong at this year?
