The PAX gathered at the shovel flag. Duracell covered the F3 Mission Statement: To plant, grow, & serve the invigoration of male community leadership through small workout groups. The Credo was recited: We leave no man behind & no man where we found him. Duracell stated the 5 core principles: Always outside, open to all men, always free, led in a rotating fashion, & ends in a COT.

COT: The COT was based on personal goals & the fact that by the end of February, some of our New Year’s Resolutions have maybe been forgotten. YHC shared a personal thought that has benefitted his own goal setting & achievement: Remove all self-doubt when your goal is you versus you. Expect to win. The analogy given is like booking a vacation. Once your room is booked & flight arranged, that trip is a future reality. You’re not there yet & you still have to pack your bags. The challenge is to look at your goals the same way – the steps that you need to take to reach your goals are just like packing your bags, but if you look at it as a future reality, your chances of success are greater.
