Holy crap, finishing this list has been a long time coming! I’ve been taking a break from writing while focusing on some sudden changes in my face-to-face business and taking advantage of the opportunities there-in. My apologies, as I should have finished this series of posts first!

Anyway, in case you missed it, I recently turned 31 and in light of that have compiled 31 things I’ve learned about life, strength and conditioning, business, and relationships. Here’s Part I and Part II.

And now, let’s finish the list!

I don’t know how many of you have seen the new Onion News Network stuff, but it’s a freaking riot. They’re doing a great job with it.

This little gem came across my path yesterday and I have to share it because it’s totally true. Comedy has long been a great vehicle for talking about serious topics and I can think of no more serious topic than how you lead your life and what you do with your opportunities.

While I’m not a big fan of the “New Year’s Resolution” (just wait for tomorrow’s blog post…) I am a fan of the idea that it represents:

Taking care of business and making changes.

After all, nobody says “This year, I resolve to do exactly what I am doing now and that’s it”. Or, if they do, then to be honest they kind of suck. Instead, the New Year’s Resolution is rooted in the idea of improvement, and that’s the name of the game around here. So without more preamble here’s what’s got me rocking…

Ok, so everyone does the “Best of XXXX year”, “Worst of XXXX year”, etc lists right around the New Year. I have to tell you; They’re my guilty pleasure. Sure, most of them tend to be trash (especially the song/movie/cupcake, etc ones), but sometimes there are some real quality observations to be found floating around this time of year.

Plus, I am at times nostalgic and I love lists, so I suppose it makes sense that I’d be all over these “End of the Year” lists like a fat kid on a cupcake (any one of the Top 10 Cupcakes will do).

So with all that being said, rather than buck the trend, I figured I’d jump right in. You won’t find “Top Ten Exercises” or “Isaac’s Failed Pick-up Lines of the Year” (I’m not THAT nostalgic) here, though. Instead I’m simply going to go through a few points that 2010 really hammered home for me. Several of them were ideas that I thought I knew or had embraced, only to find that I wasn’t living it. 2010 was one of the best years of my life, and I owe it to really getting some of these ideas pounded home through my thick skull.

First of all, I hope that you had a great holiday season.

I didn’t do anything too exciting, just enjoyed spending time with friends and family. I did maintain my yearly tradition of watching the best and most classy of Christmas films: Bad(der) Santa. It was a great, relaxing holiday and just what the doctor ordered. Hopefully yours was equally refreshing.

Back for another week of Rock My World Wednesday! Sorry I’ve been so quiet with my posting this past week; I’ve been in the lab working on a bunch of stuff behind the scenes, so get ready for some crazy stuff in the near future.

That being said, I have had some time to be impressed with some stuff this week. Without further adieu, let’s get to the fun!

One of the coolest things about the internet is the ability for information and ideas to travel and get into the hands of people that want them. As such, one of the things I’ve been wanting to do lately with this blog is to have a weekly list of off-the-cuff thoughts and things that I’m getting into lately.

So I was bumping around Facebook yesterday and one of my friends posted up a picture and link to The Bacon Explosion. Now, as a good, red-blooded American male, there are a couple of things that I hold sacred:

1. Bacon.

2. Doing things with over-the-top dominance.

This is pretty much the pinnacle of both.
