HANDBOOK 2011 (CrossFit modified with any comment after an ellipsis. Anything untouched was too good to hack. Don't get me wrong- I hacked a few good ones.)Health:1. Drink plenty of water…and mix with arginine extreme and spark.2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a beggar…and snack like a paleozoner.3. Eat more foods which grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.4. Live with the 3 E's — Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy…Also the 3 C's- CrossFit, consistently, constantly.5. Make time to pray….and recover.6. Play more games…like CrossFit WAR!7. Read more books than you did in 2010.8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.9. Sleep for 7 hours…maybe 12 after Lumberjack 20.10. Take a 10-30 minute walk daily. And while you walk, smile…then break into wind sprints for time.Personality:11. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about…but start with someone’s Fran time for a baseline comparison.12. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.13. Don't overdo. Keep your limits…unless you're PR-ing.14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does…seriously!15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip…save it for the WOD.16. Dream more while you are awake…not under the bar though.17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need…unless you don't have the new innov8's.18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others…unless they're CF haters of course- but still then just act like you hate them.20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you…and your crossfit coach;)22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.23. Smile and laugh more.24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.Society:25. Call your family often.26. Each day give something good to others.27. Forgive everyone for everything.28. Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.30. What other people think of you is none of your business.31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.Life:32. Do the right thing!…like full range of motion and no miscounting reps!33. Get rid of anything which isn't useful, beautiful, or joyful…like your preacher bench in the basement!34. GOD heals everything…even torn hip flexors.35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up.37. The best is yet to come.38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.39. Your inner most is always happy. So, be happy.
