Deck of Chaos
The deck of cards determines our destiny!
For all suits with a card value of 2-6 = Suicides based on the value of the card.

  • Example: draw a number 4 card (4wo Cone touches): Run to Cone 1, back to Start, run to Cone 2 and back to start. run to Cone 3, back to Start, run to Cone 4, back to start. Done.

For the rest of the deck, perform the number of reps based on the value of the card according to the list below:

  • Face Cards = 15 reps
  • Ace = 21 reps
  • Jokers = run to the top of the hill and back to the curb.

The exercises are as follows:

  • Hearts: Burpees
  • Spades: 4c Squats
  • Clubs: 4ct Flutter Kicks
  • Diamonds: 4ct Merkins

We were just 6 cards shy of finishing the deck, that’s my bad.  Next time will probably stick with single count rather than 4ct on the exercises (except for Flutter Kicks).  That should put the PAX right where we need to be to finish the whole deck

COT
Number off and Name-O-Rama – 30 PAX including 1 FNG – Zillow

BOM
Grit – Grind – Grace

For me, they sum up the mindset a HIM needs to wake with each morning to make sure he takes his DRP and gets better.

  • GRIT – Defined as “courage and resolve; strength of character”, this is the mindset a HIM has to have if he is going to have the impact on the world that he longs for.  Everything starts in the mind.  There will always be 10 reasons to not do what is good and right…GRIT finds that one reason to press forward and makes it happen.
  • GRIND – This is where we do the work to get better.  Where we put GRIT to work.  It’s not enough to think about, we need to get dirty.  It’s not easy, it’s not supposed to be.  The challenge is what fuels growth.  Whether it is physical, mental, relational or spiritual if we are going to get better we MUST put in the work.  The GRIND is where a HIM applies his GRIT to get better and makes his world better for others.
  • GRACE – This final point reminds us that none of us are perfect, that we all need outside help.  No man reaches his full potential alone, no one.  The very life we live is a grace.  No greater display of grace in all of history than Christ on the cross.  The key for a HIMs is to see the GRACE that surrounds him and draw strength from it and then be an agent of grace in the lives of those around him.  GRACE fuels humility, teachability and flexibility, three key attributes of very good leader.  Today we got through by ensuring that the man on our left and right got through.  The Fellowship of Suffering is a extreme grace in our lives that hones us to be the best we can be.  As we both receive and extend grace in every area of life we mature into men of impact.

Every day this week we have an opportunity to exercise GRIT, GRIND and GRACE.  The thing is, no one can force it upon you.  You have to choose it, commit to it and then see it done.  So let’s do this.
