    As I was reading through the WSJ while eating my pork loin with olive tapenade (god bless my wife and her willingness to ride along on the Paleo train), I came across the following cartoon (the strip is called Pepper….And Salt):

    Two middle-age guys in suits trudging down the sidewalk with their brief cases with the following caption: “I’ve been sleeping a lot better ever since I’ve come to embrace mediocrity.”

    My first thought was whether Coach Main was somehow involved in this – it is the kind of thing that John would say when presenting options to someone in the middle of a tough WOD – “You can go ahead and embrace mediocrity and quit, or you can pick up the fucking bar and strive for greatness. The choice is yours – always.”

    My second thought was how right on that statement is. It is true in our professional lives, our personal lives and certainly in our CrossFit lives (not sure “CrossFit lives” is grammatically correct, or even English, but I was on a role with the lives stuff).

    Greatness is, for virtually all of us, elusive, in part because it is so damn hard to not embrace mediocrity. Clearly, those of us who have found MPH have taken the first step away from mediocrity, but I wonder how many of us find ourselves drawn to the sinkhole that is mediocrity during each and every WOD – if I am honest with myself, I can point to at least one (and often many more) moments of doubt, fear, negativity, or whatever you want to call it, during each WOD.

    So, where does this take me? It takes me here – Fuck Mediocrity. Am I capable of greatness (whatever that means), am I willing to do what it takes to be great? I don’t know. But I do know that I can do more to try and get there (wherever “there” is), and the first step is to say and live my new moto – Fuck Mediocrity.

    See you at the Box (particularly now that I can do more than just stand around).

      F’CK MEDIOCRITY INDEED! And it’s definitly easier to step forward, in the right direction, when you’ve got the support and shared experiences of the Box.

      Well said John!
