Love The Process

While recently listening to one of my favorite bodybuilders (Simeon Panda​) talk about the motivation to visit the gym, he responded by saying that he just loved the process of building muscle. Sure, he wants to look good, build strength, and amass an impressive physique, but for Simeon it was more about doing what he loved. He continued to explain that it's not about some end result, it's about the daily activities. There is enjoyment in the process.

As I think about my life, I think about where I want to be. I want to be financially free (no debt and no worries), I want to travel the world with family and friends, I want to have the body of my dreams, I want to reach the top rank in my company, I wan't to earn that Ph.D., and I want to be a blessing to others. In many cases, I'm thinking about the end result. What about the process? What about the journey? What about today? What about right now?

I've heard people say, "Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life." According to Simeon, that is exactly what he does. Every day is a new challenge, a new opportunity to be better than you were yesterday, a new chance to help more people, or just a moment to bring beauty where there was none. What makes you happy? As Nike says, "Just do it!"

Champions, wherever you are in life. Whatever you seek to achieve or obtain, find enjoyment in the day-to-day activities that ultimately leads to where you want to be. If everyday is full of love and happiness because you're doing what you enjoy, you'll have a lifetime of great memories. Why celebrate only when you achieve something? Why not celebrate everyday?

Love the process. Embrace the journey. Live a blessed life daily.

Just something to think about. Let's make today a great one, Champions!

NCCU's Information Technology Services Get's Covered

Lookie, lookie! The North Carolina Central University Information Technology Services has just secured its table cloth. Whoop! Whoop! [Enter angelic music]

From this day forth, we can now attend conferences, career fairs, and other events in style. Big shout out to the individuals and teams responsible for making this happen.

It's the little things that can make a big impression. Eagle Pride!

Meerkat vs. Periscope

Meerkat vs. Periscope

Yesterday, I talked about joining Periscope. Today, I've installed it's competitor, Meerkat.

For those unfamiliar, each of these mobile apps provide for live streaming. It's like Snapchat, but in longer form video...and it's LIVE!

My username on both Periscope and Meerkat is "damondnollan." Feel free to connect with me on either...or both.

Now, here is the question, "Which one is better?" Well, according to this article, referenced below, this author says that Periscope, which is owned by Twitter, is a much better and well thought out app.

For me, I have friends and celebrities who are using one, the other, or both. So, until I figure out which one I like best, I'll just use them both.

Check them out and let me know your thoughts.

Blasting Legs

Just finished legs...wow! After the leg presses and barbell squats, my legs were so pumped up that I thought they were going to explode. By the last exercise, I feel like I'm going to fall down at any moment.

Here is a quad shot. The muscles are so tired that I can barely flex them. Still have a layer of fat that I'm working off, but this is a good progress shot for the record books.

Heading home to get some fuel and then rest. Tomorrow night, I'm back in Goldsboro for a night of vision casting and then chest building.

Let's get it, champions!
