Day 526: M5 Pre Shred - RTP Mission Control Re-Activated

G'day Shredders,

The Power Grid at RTP Mission Control has been officially re-activated!

NYC Aftermath

That's right! The dust has finally settled from the most insane adventure of my life...Training (and sightseeing) with Tom Venuto and The New York Four in New York City for Mission 4: Date With Destiny and ECSS 2008 !

My 16-day adventure in New York, New Jersey and San Francisco was totally "off the hook" and easily the most awesome experience of my life.

Back To Earth...Quickly!

However, I didn't have much time to reflect on this journey as I was back at work within 2 days of arriving back in Japan (and have been ever since).

The truth is that my hectic work (as in job!) schedule has soaked up all my available time since my return. Since I have gotten back I have been on a bus tour up to the snow-capped mountains of Nagano (near Tokyo) and down to the parklands of Nara on that same bus (2 hours from Osaka) doing a few corporate gigs.

During this time I was in very remote areas that had no Internet access so I decided to grit my teeth and wait until the day I had some free time before I started posting in "real time" again. The good news for me is...that day is today!

While I still have a few more Post M4 Blog Entries to catch up on (as well as a couple of vids from my last days in New York and San Francisco) I will be posting daily again from today.

M5: Pre Shred Goes Live

I believe it is extremely important to continue practicing what I preach in regards to daily picture and blog accountability. I have learned the hard way from previous Missions that the slide backwards is directly proportionate to the length of time of my Post Mission "chill out period".

Therefore I will continue to post daily M5: Pre Shred pics to hold myself publicly accountable in the lead-up to the official start of Mission 5.

I will reveal the full scope of M5 in due time, but I'll say this right now...M5:CD will be a biggie!

A Bold Prediction...

This Mission will be a "once in a lifetime experience" for me and a certain number of hand-picked Shredders - who make it through the screening process.

I'll make a bold prediction...There are a few of you reading these words right now who will achieve the following:

The Body Of Your Dreams...At A Dream Location...Surrounded By The People Of Your Dreams!

That's all I can say right now...

Shredder Pact:

We will focus on the single daily actions that produce results.

We will "burn our bridges" and not look back.

We will never surrender.

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG!

Adam Waters, NESTA-CPT

P.S. Below are Day 526 Mission 5: Pre Shred Pics for April 18, 2008.

P.S.S. As I mentioned above I still have a few days to catch up on from my last days in New York and San Francisco. In the interests of continuity those posts will appear on the dates they occurred (i.e. below these "real time" posts).

P.S.S.S. On the next edition of Shredder Sunday - Day 528 - I will post full details of Shredder Council 2.0 Membership requirements as well as new ShredderSphere & Shredder Blog Roll parameters. These new requirements will have ramifications on who will be eligible to participate in M5 (i.e. we all gotta practice what we preach!)

Your Grateful Cyber-friend, Christy said...

Sounds like you've had an adventure at home right on the back of your adventure here in the States. I love the videos. I'm glad there's more coming.

I'm with Suzette! Umm. I hope there's still room in your next mission for those of us who preach weird stuff, but practice it. :)

Mike Groom said...

Adam, I for one am very excited about M5! It's also great to see you back posting, I've missed you :)

Debbie said...

So great to have you back, Adam!! I'm looking forward to our next mission.

Adam Waters said...

Hi Christina, its great to be back! Also great to see you are steamrolling through daily accountability on your blog as well!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Suzette, I have a strong feeling that you will definitely be a part of it!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Christy, you bet! If I didn't include people who do weird stuff then I'd have to disqualify myself!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Mike, I really dug your secret video yesterday! Your "reveal" will be massive!

Adam Waters said...

G'day Debbie, you are going great with Beach Body Shred and I think BBS will be a great pre-cursor to M5!
