Wisdom from Jordan Peterson 


The new year is a natural time of reflection and goal setting.

Here are two principles to consider: 

1. Specify conditions for failure 

Often, people won't aim at what they want because they're afraid. They're afraid because if you specify what you want, you define your conditions of failure. 

If you have something to aim for, that's a source of positive emotion. It would help if you aimed something realistic that also pushes you. Part of the pleasure is achieving the thing. The other part is making yourself better at pursuing things. You're aiming at something, and you're increasing your competence. 

2. Stop wasting time 

I often ask undergraduates: "How many hours a day do you waste?" 

The classic answer was 5 hours per day. That's 35 hours per week or 140 hours per month. If you think about this in terms of deferred wages, and the market values your time at $50 per hour, that's $91,000 per year. 

If your life isn't everything it could be, what would happen if you just stopped wasting the opportunities in front of you? You could be 10 - 20x more efficient.

"The 1,000 Mile Challenge is about challenging yourself to run, walk, or ruck in 2022. We call it the 1,000 Mile Challenge, but tabs are earned at 300, 700 and 1,000 miles, and ultimately you decide what your miles will be.

As in previous years, 100% of the net proceeds from this Challenge will be going to charity and we are proud to be supporting the Green Beret Foundation and Team RWB again this year."
