We all have different missions in life. We all have different goals. Some people want to be self-sufficient in their old age; some want to be military special operators; some just want to look and feel good as they approach mid-life.
Military units train to accomplish their mission. We should do the same as individuals. Being mission capable means you can accomplish your mission, which means to live the life you want to live. The goal is to get to mission capable and continue to thrive through constant improvement.
About This Site
This is a free resource for anyone wishing to perform to their highest potential based on their mission. It is a compilation of many schools of thought on nutrition, activity, strength and conditioning, stress management, sleep, tech, gear, productivity and other topics that I have found successful over the years. The information will be both from other sources as well as some original content from me. The combination and curation of it will be unique. I will do my best to keep this site simple without cluttering it with every single piece of information I can add. Anything on here is worth your time in my opinion. Its use has no strings attached. I am just trying to inform people of things I have found successful.
