Walk, Don't Run, To Career Success


Last year was not a good year for my personal health. I just wasn't getting around to working out, and then in the Spring I ripped my calf muscle and found myself wobbling around the house for a week. At the end of the week I ripped it again, much worse, and found myself laying around the house for six weeks, wondering if people with ripped calf muscles ever walk again (it was so very painful).

I took the rest of the year in stride (no pun intended) and didn't do much, physically. But this year I got the hair-brained idea to set a SMART goal. The S stands for Specific and the M stands for Measurable, so I pulled a random number out of the air and figured I'd walk (not jog) 500 miles this year. I think I can do it, as long as I don't have a ripped calf muscle again.
