I have finally decided to get this blog going and to start putting some of the things that I am working on out in the public domain. I no longer wish to remain anonymous and keep my ideas, products, enterprises and ventures hidden. It is with the full light of day that they will either flourish or die. And in either case that will be ok with me.
Peak Performance on Line is a new business for us. The us being my wife Kathy and me. It evolved from a business that we already started called Equine Peak Performance. This new site started out being about Equine Health, which is fairly obvious, and there are a couple of products that are designed for dogs.
But then I started thinking about other things, which had mostly to do with me and some of the health and fitness issues I am being faced with now that I am no longer clinging to my youth. I’ve had a couple of scares this year and have been faced with personal problems with health and with fitness that I never thought I would have to face.
Peak Performance has one meaning for all intents and purposes but that definition changes with time. When I was in my twenties, I never gave it a thought. I was bullet proof and there was nothing that could stop me. The truth of the matter is that I am now paying for some of the decisions I made in my twenties that at the time didn’t seem foolish at all. The cost for me today is starting to rear it’s ugly head.
The other side of the equation is that both my parents are alive, and in case you didn’t get a gander at my handsome mug, I am no spring chicken. So guess what. The folks are shall we say “elderly”? Yeah, dad is 89 and ma is 88. They are dealing with their own issues which I won’t go into here but suffice it to say, their issues have made me become much more aware of my own mortality. At first it was somewhat scary, then it became a real eye opener, and then I decided to use them as my own cautionary tale.
So these events around my life and that of my parents has made me think much more deeply and seriously about what life means to me and how I can maximize whatever time I have left on this planet in terms of health and accomplishment. Hopefully the two go hand in hand.
Therefore, I will be posting about what progress and achievements I make, the failures, the trial and error, the solutions and the products that have and will become a part of the ongoing journey.
Peak Performance is about the products, the lifestyle, the conditions and the motivations that for me will define those two words going forward. I hope you join me in my journey, and that I can have some effect on your life, to motivate you to be all that you can be.
