Candice, my lovely wife, came to me with a plan for us to get fitter – it’s a 12 week fitness plan that we tried before but were so stiff after the first session we pretty much quit.

To avoid quitting again this time, I thought it would be best if we added stakes to take the place of self discipline.

[Tweet “Don’t use self discipline to get things done – use a big-ass fire under your butt instead!”]

I wanted the stakes to be very high, so that it would be a no-brainer to follow through. I put up my LTD ESP EC-500 electric guitar, and she put up her iPad.

Follow us (Candice, me) on twitter, who knows, you could get an iPad and a sweet electric guitar?
