"Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four hours sharpening the axe." - Abraham Lincoln
A natural progression towards goal achievement typically follows this trend: plant, cultivate, and harvest. Planting and cultivating are the best ways to sharpen the axe. The harvest is the reward for consistent work. The consistency of planting and cultivating doesn't always have to be boring. A fun race along the way can fuel the passion to maintain the consistency.
Congrats to the Foundation athletes who had a little fun while sharpening their axes this past weekend!
