Monday Mindset: Labor Day
Today we’ll divert from the usual routine and instead take a moment to honor the members of our community here who are out there getting things done every day. The first responders, construction workers, truck drivers, and so on. The people who rarely get the spotlight but keep the wheels of society greased.
Because of these people we are able to enjoy an amazing quality of life and pursue our passion of the martial arts!
Labor Day is near and dear to my heart as I spent much of my professional life in the trades (landscaping and painting). It’s tough work, but also extremely rewarding. While I’m glad I’m not out there every day breaking rocks and moving earth, I still value the work ethic that hard labor taught me over the years and believe it’s one of the reasons for my success as an athlete, coach, and business owner.
Enjoy the holiday everyone and I hope to see you at the open mat!
