Arrived in the gloom @ 6:30 and noted Vandelay was leading a great beatdown in the parking lot above. Happy Early Birthday Vandelay!

Although, I had planned this beatdown well in advance there would be some shuffling due to the recent rainfall. Of course, that would never prevent HIM from still getting after it regardless. Since todays beatdown would be a mashup it would also include some sweet 80s remix music (not commercial free). o 7:00 AM welcomed the PAX to F3 and The Oracleo No FNGs presentedo Described F3o F3 = Fitness, Fellowship, Faitho Mission = to plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadershipo 5 Core Principles = free of charge, open to all men, always held outdoors, peer lead in rotating fashion, end with Circle of Trusto I am not a professional so please modify as necessary!o

Told PAX that COT today would be about finding joy in the journey. The journey towards goals sometimes matters more than destination. “Focus on the Journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it” ~Greg Anderson. o

COT – Find Joy In Your Journeyo “Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome” ~Arthur Asheo The journey to reach goals may far exceed the goal itself. Sometimes the outcome of the goal may not be as significant as you were led to believe. Although this is a bold statement reflect on a substantial goal you accomplished. You probably would not have reached that goal if it were not for the steps taken to get there, right? o Think arriving rather than striving and the journey is the essence of where life exists in all her glory. This is where F3 has helped me change my mindset of my said goals. Whether it’s via my newly established shield lock or having a great conversation with someone in the gloom, I’ve come to appreciate and find true joy in the journey I am on and who I am becoming along the way.o
