What a F#$ken Waste of Time

What a F#$ken Waste of Time
no comments


I’ve trained many different types of people, from many different parts of the world, with varying commitment levels, and many diverse lifestyles.

On average, in my opinion the largest constraint for us as humans is the will to commit. Myself obviously included.

An enormous portion of the commitment constraint as it relates to exercise is – “TIME” I just don’t have enough time (For training)

If we had an enormous amount of Authenticity we would most likely agree, time is just us being defensive, time is our excuse.

The real issue at hand is usually that a person isn’t dedicated enough, doesn’t put any value or importance on training.

It aint on their radar of importance, that is at least until the health scare comes to them or someone in their circle.

What we are really saying in 2017 is “IT’S A WASTE OF FU$%KEN TIME”

Actually heres some optics on it.

  • There is 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week TOTAL 168 Hours
  • Lets even say you work 14 hour days Monday to friday TOTAL 70 HOURS LEAVING 98 HOURS
  • You need to sleep at least 7 hours a day, if your not START!!!! Ok so TOTAL 49 HOURS LEAVING 49
  • So with 49 hours a day left lets say you commute 2 hours a day Monday- Friday thats 10 HOURS LEAVING 39
  • On average family time, social time (Eating, drinking, talking, chilling 4 Hours a day 7 days) TOTAL 28 HOURS LEAVING 11

Truth is of this very generous time optics you have a total of 11 hours a week to train if you choose to. Yes there are many variables that effect the bottom line, however you can see it all comes down to value and importance.

Time is one of your greatest assets protect her. BE THE DOCTOR of your life, you try for a doctors appointment, you get the receptionist and you get the booking that is available, as Dr Eggplant is protecting and valuing his time. We should do the same, to what we see as important. Things like your health and loved ones.


These are three common time-wasting Vampires and  i plan to address here:





If you have a long commute, do whatever you can to avoid getting stuck in traffic. Sitting in a traffic jam is dead time. Avoid busy times by leaving your home earlier in the morning and/or coming home later. SUCK IT UP, Protect Father time!

The FU%$ken Cell Phone:

Most people don’t have a concept of how much time they waste daily on their phone. So do me a favor. Every time you check your phone for a text message or social media update, do five burpees. You will learn fast how much of a time suck the phone can be. I bet most of you waste hours of time each day. The cell phone also makes your other tasks take much longer because it’s a distraction. MY BIGGEST PERSONAL CONSTRAINT!

We need self-control. Put the phone away sometimes. We can’t possibly be so attached. Discipline = Freedom (Jocko Willink)


You can’t be everything to everyone and you can’t give everything to everyone (John Templetons advice to me)

There are people (you know the ones I am talking about) who enjoy talking your ear off, ask you for help when they don’t really need it.

Be kind, be nice, but know it is okay to protect your time. Time is precious. Spend it on those who deserve and respect it.
Time is a precious commodity. Protect it and respect it. We are all capable of making time for the things we love. Learn to make time for your training. It could change your life. You just have to want it.
