I love to set personal goals. The feeling of always reaching for something that you can just barely touch with your fingertips. The above picture is my father-in-law John performing the “Iron Cross” on the gymnastic rings. He used to perform the “Flying Rings” on Muscle Beach back in the day. Wow. Gymnasts make it look so easy, but the most humbling experience you can have is to actually try it.
Like I said I love to set goals for myself, and not just in audio endeavors (e.g. design a great new amp). I’m not what you would call an “in-shape” person – in fact just two months ago I couldn’t do a single chin up! Now I can do a single good one (no kicking, swinging, etc.) I have installed a pair of gymnastic rings in the garage and my personal goal is: to perform a single “Muscle Up” on the rings!
My next goal is to someday perform the Iron Cross on the rings…hey, it’s important to have dreams! 🙂
