Thoughtful Thursday…community focus...member profile


Welcome to Thoughtful Thursday. This GreenNote Fitness newsletter mindfully gathers and distills useful information that is supportive to our journey. It is my mission to educate, inspire, and propel you into action that moves you towards your goals and life of purpose. Take control of your journey today. November - GreenNote Fitness Community Focus For the month of November we will highlight members of the community to get a glimpse of their journey and what is working well for them. This is a small way for GreenNote Fitness to pay tribute to the community and say ‘thank you’.

The focus this week is on Tracy. What is inspiring about Tracy is his can-do, never quit attitude. He wants to improve and so he pushes himself. Tracy is grateful for the people in his life. If you have ever met him, you can see his bright smile when he talks about his family. Thank you Tracy for sharing your journey. What book are you currently reading and/or on your reading list? My current reading list is hardly exciting. My work requires annual technical certifications so my reading list includes dazzling topics like Agile Project Management and Mastering Microsoft Project. Not much fun and certainly nothing I would recommend. However, I have a few Stephen King novels on my book shelf just waiting for the opportunity to dive into. And of course, there’s my annual reading of Ben Hogan’s “Five Lessons – The Modern Fundamentals of Golf”, the best golf instructional book ever written by my favorite all-time golfer. What are you currently grateful for in your life? This is easy. I’m forever grateful for my family. Sharing a conversation and a glass of wine with my wife, Donna. Spending time with my 3 grown children and their families. Seeing the world thru my 3-year-old granddaughter and the excited anticipation for our next grandchild in April. They are the reasons I can’t wait to start each morning. What is your favorite thing to do when you just want to “un-plug” for a while? My favorite “un-plug” activity is to be at the driving range with a bucket of range balls and nowhere to be for the next 2 hours. Stress and worries seem to melt away unless I’m fighting a pull-hook. In the past year (or longer) what have you reflected upon the most? I’m reaching the age where retirement is on my mind more and more. Work brings me satisfaction (and a paycheck) but retirement is my “happy place” to think about as I plan and imagine travels, family time, and not filling out a timesheet each Friday. What advice would you give your 30-year old self?

  • Plan for the future but live in the moment.

  • Take care of yourself as your health is the major influence of your later years.

  • Learn to forgive.
