The THPL journey it is that place where we are supposed to execute consistently to our principles, Life, Learning, Fitness, big themes, big purpose guiding our way to increasing levels of personal fulfillment. Oh but how life rolls…..perfect we are not. We know how to do it “right” but we get caught up, distracted, tired, or just something, and, well, we just don’t execute as we know how we should. So, what are we to do? Might it be that we should go back to basics, create a checklist, the one we look at every day, that we bring along with us, that has the reminders that get us back on track. The checklist works even for the best of experts. The doctor, the pilot, the teacher, they all have the checklist for what needs to be done, the order and the result. It keeps their performance at a very high level and it ensures that little can get in the way. Seems that the process of creating our own checklist might even be powerful as it is the creation of the list that will show us the power of the principles of THPL. Let’s do it, let’s start that list….now…..we will be better for it, that is for sure

There is clearly a goal orientation on the THPL journey. And then there are the challenges of our time-starved lives. Depending on the way we make choices we might do better or not in achieving our goals. One way to make it easier on ourselves is to always be training for something. We change our behavior and our choices when we have a goal we are working towards. We make fewer excuses, we have measures that show progress and we stay focused on that “something” that we are striving for. So, while on our long weekend let’s think about what it is we are training for – or pick something to be training for. For sure let’s exit the weekend with our goal set and our plan in place. We will feel better for it and will have more to be happy for.
It seems like as many of our THPLers enter the three-day weekend there is an opportunity to think about how we spend our time. It could be if we are not mindful of how we use the three days that we end up missing out on a proper dose of nature and we spend more time inside than outside. Connecting with nature is so powerful; the feeling of peace and life, the beauty and the wondrous, the familiar and the new, all of it allowing us to reconnect in a way that is impactful and rewarding. Spending time in nature just recharges the system and on the THPL journey, one where we put so much energy into how we live, a simple recharge is often just what we needed to keep the mission alive and vibrant. So, when given the opportunity this weekend we should find our way to touch nature in some way and then make sure that we carry it with us as we venture back to that other normal world that we spend more time in. I think we will all be better for it.
This journey that we take while living the THPL gets easier when we become a good listener. Can it be simpler? Listen to those who have experience, insight, perspective, and opinion – so much to get access to that makes us better. Sometimes what we hear might be in conflict with how we think but let’s see what we can do not to disregard what we hear. Give what we listen to the right and just consideration and more times than not what we listen to is good for us – good to know, good to act on. Let’s see if we can indeed listen more. Might just make life easier……indeed
Along the THPL journey it is awesome when we get feedback that we are doing very well, that we are a role model for THPL, that we exemplify all that there is to be while on the path to personal fulfillment. Realistically, thought, we will get little such feedback. And even if we do, we are likely to see it as gratuitous. Which leaves us where? Waiting? While we wait for love and positive feedback we might not get it or want it. Have we created a conundrum…. or an opportunity….. to think differently about what it is that will keep us doing well on our THPL journey? And that different thinking starts in our hearts, our heads and in our soul. We get to decide how to think about our journey, how to enjoy it, appreciate it, and celebrate it. We love feedback, we need it but we cannot become dependent on it or victim to the lack of feedback. We are our best source of strength, and love of self, all we need to do is to tap into it and we will hit the path to remarkable way before we ever thought possible.
Loving life when I am not waiting on anyone but me…..
We know that the most successful THPL journey is one that is informed and where learning is at the center of our experience. And now more than ever the availability of content/information/facts/insights, and curated versions (of all) are ubiquitous. It would then seem that we would avail ourselves of this opportunity to learn and we would do it as much as possible. Alas, it feels that we, collectively, do not reach out and use the learning elements that are around us, as much as we possibly can. We need then to think about how we should benefit from the learning activity and set measurable goals for how to achieve them. There is little risk and only a lot of upside when we make learning an integral and expiclit part of our day. There could be no better way to start the day than consuming amazing content, in the form of choice, and in a setting most fitting to each of us. This kind of morning “fuel” will just make everything better….indeed it will
We all know that the longer we stay on the THPL journey the higher the likelihood that we will find a time when there is a challenge in front of us that is daunting, one that makes us pause and maybe even stop. But rather than shy away from the challenge what if we dropped our fear and took it head on. It might take some real support from others and we would have to seek it out. Advice, coaching, support. When we line this up we start to build a bit more confidence, a confidence that will make us want to engage. It is the process of learning and living that gives us the will to give it a try and when we start to learn by doing there is nothing that we cannot achieve - we just have to give it a real serious attempt…aka try
Along the THPL journey there are times when we put in the right effort and we get great results. And the goodness is that these results get well seated in our heads and our hearts. We remember our fastest run or ride, the time we won the tennis match, the debate that was amazing, the near perfect score on a test. All fantastic memories. Then there is the current reality that we all live in. When there are times that our performance is not where it once was. When compromises are made and our results suffer. The question we need to ask of ourselves…..is this ok? If not then what are we to do about it? Are we ready to make the commitment to get back to some semblance of high performance? It is worthy of strong consideration. In so doing we need to leave the excuses behind – the choice is simple. Go for it and performance will improve. Put in the effort, see the results. Seems like the right thing to do. It is what THPL is all about after all.
Each day we go on our THPL journey we have the opportunity to start and end as we wish. We can be active in the choices we make to start our day or we can become victim to what others think we should do. We do get some good practice at “being in charge” of our day and that happens normally when we are on vacation. We make very explicit choices about how we want to start the day and to spend our time. Read a book, go for a run, sleep late, play golf, have brunch…..It matters none what we choose – rather it is in the choosing that the win happens and the day starts off great and onto being even better. So why don’t we apply the same principle to how we start every day, vacation or not. We can have our own “rules” for how we use our morning time and we should well stick to them. Our time is ours to use and enjoy – and when we get this right, then maybe, just maybe we will have established the best of all THPL journey’s – the one’s that are ours and ours alone……
We can all get excited about THPL and what it does for our community and us. And it is great to celebrate THPL by how we live. Lead by example, reflect the values and themes of THPL and the journey to personal fulfillment. Focus on Life, Learning and Fitness and be thrilled that we are part of this lifestyle. And that is where we should slow down before we start to campaign for our chosen life path. We can ask others if they want to join but we need to let them decide on their path – if THPL interests them, then by all means engage them, but if the interest is not there we step to the side and we continue on our path. The choice to live the THPL life is ours, and ours alone. And with this a deeper level of pure engagement and a realization that the choices that we make do indeed make up who we are and how we live. Just ask….that’s it…..more is not needed….
The THPL journey has at its core motion and movement - they are essential to how we take in and appreciate all that is THPL. Staying still, not moving, not growing is how we stall our life. We do not get any better if we do not press forward. It is the physics of the quest that give us a certain destiny. We need to create an opportunity for movement every day and with this natural energy great things happen. The power of motion and movement creating that which we seek….a path to a better version of me. Yes, indeed.
There are many reasons that we are captivated by the THPL journey, there is the learning, the growing, the stretching, all so wondrous and rewarding. And then there is the magic that happens when we reach one step further into the land of uncertainty. Without knowing it we love uncertainty, not knowing exactly what is going to happen is captivating, what we might find if we continue down the path with some doubt that we will find what we want is what motivates us. We continue forward regardless, the uncertainty the draw,and the potential for a revealing that is the reason why we will continue to seek uncertainty,
There are some things that we all should do whenever possible on our THPL journey…..that is to share our hope for our future, and the harmony, and possibility that comes with it. We might find that some who are on the journey are in need of support, of encouragement, of help and assistance. Maybe most of all, though, they need a dose of hope. So while we are on the THPL journey we need to reflect the spirit of hope to others, one of confidence, optimism about the future, and a feeling that makes us more alive, ready to take the next steps on the journey. And to do so even when all is not perfect…..it is hope that makes us chase tomorrow….let’s share it every chance we get….there might be no better gift we can give…
One of the good things about the THPL journey is that it gives us a lot of time and opportunity to get better. Better at Life, Learning, and Fitness. And as such it provides us with a platform for change. Change that would make us stronger, faster, smarter, happier, something more than we are today. The impetus for change, seems to be there, so….we need to seize it and do something about it. How about we think about one thing that we are going to change. One thing that we know will help us perform better. And then we set out a plan to make the change happen and stick to it. We can start small, succeed with a modest change and then amp it up from there. The key is to start the change process and to make it natural and normal to change. The more we do this the more resilient we will be on our THPL journey and the more likely we will hit successfully increasingly levels of personal fulfillment. Time for a change? Yes, indeed….

Bàn về một số giải pháp nhằm đổi mới công tác theo dõi THPL ở nước ta trong giai đoạn hiện nay
Thực tiễn cho thấy, công tác theo dõi thi hành pháp luật ngày càng được các Bộ, ngành, địa phương quan tâm, tổ chức thực hiện. Tuy nhiên, trước yêu cầu quản lý nhà nước, quản lý xã hội bằng pháp luật và mục tiêu xây dựng nhà nước pháp quyền xã hội chủ nghĩa ở nước ta theo đúng tinh thần…
There are some times when we find ourselves on the THPL journey when we know we are not performing at the level that we know we can. And in this circumstance our issue might just be in our emotions. They are not where they should be. We are feeling something that is getting in the way of our performance. It could be that we are unhappy with the circumstance, we could be affected by exogenous factors, someone could be messing with us, or we can just be distracted. All of which can let our emotions run wild and when this happens it is hard to perform. At this moment it is important to recognize what is going on. We have to stop and take inventory of how we are feeling. We need to do our best to address our emotions and get control over how we are feeling. Once we discipline our emotions our performance starts to come back and we be ready to make THPL work, regardless of the circumstance (or emotion).
The THPL journey has at its core a set of principles and themes that guide us on our journey. And it could be argued that that the key to living THPL is in the substance of what we do. That style is less important. What if, though, we could bring grace to THPL. Grace, a simple elegance or refinement of movement, the how of what we do, the style, less about the substance. More like focusing on some of the lost art of how to live. Taking time to focus on the details, to bring a level of honor to what we do, to be proud of how we live, and to show it on the journey such that others notice. And if, perchance, we see someone who brings grace to THPL then we should notice and appreciate it and be inspired to copy and role model how it is we should live the THPL life. THPL with grace – now that is something else!
