Strategic Foresight & How to Fend Off a World-Wide Depression

This article hits the nail on the head:

It says that if we are locked down too long, we will enter a depression that will cost more lives than the virus.

The key is time — and knowing what that time is.

We can defeat the virus, save the economy, and have victory — while never again relying on China.

The Need to Lift Heavy

There’s something about lifting heavy that is a need; it does something for the soul.

It gives you a sense of accomplishment, like you’ve done something for the day.

It’s hard. Frequently, you don’t want to do it. But you do it anyways.

That, to me, is powerful.

Lifting heavy has been one of the few things I like doing.

My Goal: Beat Myself Up During Coronavirus Outbreak

I’ve just decided if I can’t do anything, go anywhere, or engage in normal, human social behavior, I might as well beat myself up with CrossFit. After all, I don’t have anything to go do that I should avoid soreness for.

Thus, every day, I get up trying to beat the shit out of myself. Thrusters, wall balls, lunges, long runs, bike rides, and dumbbells galore.

Why not?

What else do I have to do?

Being Unstoppable When The World Says Otherwise

In a world that tells you to stop living, to give up your dreams, to not go anywhere, to not do anything, to fear for your life, to give up on others, to lay your plans aside, and to not trust that God has got it, in such a world, you need to be unstoppable.

You need to push back, to not believe the lies, the hearsay, the hysteria, and the antics, and to keep moving towards your dreams.

You cannot stop while you have breath in your body, while your legs can move, and your arms can reach for the stars because one day, you will be stopped.

None of us know when that day will come, which is why you cannot stop.

Don’t stop living because the world tells you not to. The world is not in charge; you are.

God will call you when He wants you. Until then, keep moving, keep living, keep dreaming, keep fighting, keep hoping, and keep praying.

Be the unstoppable force you were gifted with from the moment you were born.

Top 5 At-Home Workout Tips


For those of you who are just beginning to work out at home, here are some tips to help you:

  • Just start. It will be hard at first, but once you start moving, you’ll get into a rhythm.
  • Use what you have. If all you have is your body, you can do a lot of workouts: run, push ups, air squats, pistols, etc. If you have a jump rope or a dumbbell, use those. Improvise.
  • Keep it consistent. You will be more likely to stick to a workout routine when it is a routine. If you were going to the gym every day, continue to work out at that same time.
  • Find an online workout community. Many gyms are using apps such as SugarWOD and others to ensure their members are staying connected. They are programming at-home workouts so you can check in with others regularly. Take advantage of these.
  • Don’t be discouraged. This, too, shall pass.
what founding fathers say about coronavirus

First Man-Made Depression

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion

People are in hysteria. So is the economy. The government is playing dictator under the guise that they know what’s best for us. But do they?

When is the fact that our freedoms are severely being impinged upon going to matter?

Millions of people died from the bubonic plague. Millions. The death rate was about 50% of those who got it. Yet, there was no force shut down of businesses. People self-quarantined, and those who had it were quarantined. And this was the Black Plague. Economic depression resulted, not because of a shut down of businesses, but because half of Europe’s population was wiped out.

If this mess goes on longer than 30 days, most of us will lose our jobs. By the time the government deems it safe, it will take years for our economy to recover. People’s lives will have been set back years, and maybe even ruined — all because the government is overreacting to a tiny virus that is going to die out on its own this summer.

I’m wondering what our Founding Fathers would say to this. I’m wondering how we let our government with one breath, tell us to shut down everything we’ve worked for our entire lives.

Politicians don’t care. They will pay themselves using fake money that we will all pay for when inflation goes through the roof.

What began as a precaution has now hit hysteria. Our economy is drowning. Americans are struggling, believing in a government they should not be believing in.

The government is playing God.

This could be America’s first man-made depression. Hopefully, our leaders will realize this before it’s too late. Or, hopefully Americans will take to the streets, demanding the government take action.
