Iplayed baseball in college. During the offseason, my teammates and I would battle through friendly Strongman competitions where we would flip a giant tractor tire, drag a sled full of weights, and generally push, pull, and throw heavy, oddly-shaped things.
Occasionally, there would be an event where someone would complain about “not being built for this” or about “not training for this type of thing.”
Eventually, my roommate responded to the whining with a simple phrase: “Train for chaos.”
“Train for chaos” was a simple way of saying, “Don’t tell me that the circumstances aren’t ideal. Tell me that you’re going to make it your responsibility to be better prepared next time.”
