So it’s not exactly a physical performance article but since I have nothing else to write about today I am going to right about our office renovations.
We inhabit a very old building here at FTL and were in some serious need of renovations. We also needed some extra space to grow here so lets start ripping apart walls!
This project was a long time in the coming and involved many contractors but I must say i was happiest with our electrical contractor in London over most of the other trades people. Not that they were bad but PDR Electrical took a lot of time with us and we really appreciated it.
PDR sat down with the blueprints with us and we actually reworked quiet a bit of it to save us time and money! Can you believe that? A contractor looking to save the client money? I have never heard of such a thing! We were very impressed to say the least. They actually cut a whole circuit out and about a day of work. Now don’t get me wrong they were not cutting corners, instead they just used their experience to make the whole schematic better.
That leads me to talk about schematics and experience. This is something we preach in a way here at FTL quiet a bit. You need to have a plan when it comes to fitness and performance and you need to always be learning and willing to make adjustments as you go along. To often we will half as a plan, put it into place then just set it and forget it. Then after two months you realize that maybe you are not getting the most out of your workout or your time or whatever the case may be and you quit. All along if we were just paying a little attention to the situation we could actively manage the plan and have much better results. Who would have thought i could see the same parallel in home renovations!
The point is don’t put the blinders on
It’s something I always tried to teach my son when I was teaching him to drive. Driving the down the road looking straight ahead is easy. It’s so easy that you can do it for a long time and then not even realize where you are. You may end up at point b and not even remember the drive. Blinders. I always taught him to , yes drive straight and pay attention first and foremost the traffic in front of you but also ALWAYS scan your peripherals. Constantly looking back and for at what is going on around you — or what could potentially go on around you — is what will make you an excellent drive and quiet possibly avoid accidents and maybe even save a life or two at some point.
Anyway the renovations are just about down and we will be moving back into our brand new space soon so hopefully i will have lots of time and inspiration to keep writing on this blig site. Till then get off the couch, take off the blinders and get that body moving.
