Wednesday 11.14.12

Rest Day

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.  Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination are omnipotent.  The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve more problem of the human race.”
-Calvin Coolidge, 1923.  "Silent Cal" did not speak often, but when he did, people listened.


  1. Great quote. Universally applicable.

  2. Hey Ben, do your team athletes follow the same programming? If so could they ever post on the blog. I know they are exceptional athletes and I would like to see where I stand against great athletes.

    Thanks again for everything you do.

  3. Amazing quote!!

    Alex - I follow this programming, with the exception of sometimes going 5 on 2 off since it works well for my schedule. I'll try to post more often for ya!
