Recently had the opportunity to use the 5 steps to success to turn a vision into a reality.
VISION: (ALL GREAT IDEAS BEGIN WITH THIS)
Vision was to create a outdoor adult playground that could be used as a training venue to develop the core strength and muscle strength required to work out on gymnastic style equipment, used more in a CrossFit manner to be able to do simple exercises and routines that would involve learning to master dips, kips, planches, muscle ups, rope climbing, levers, human flags, hand stands, etc.
DEFINE YOUR GOAL:
Having a firm belief that you can accomplish anything without having all the answers, but ONLY must have good questions and a willingness to ask people with the information you require for help. Home Depot, a local plumber, a local farmer and the internet was used to research process and see how others built their DIY backyard CrossFit/Gymnastic workout equipment with reasonable costs.
DEVELOP A PLAN:
Discussed Vision with others who had a similar outlook and a vested interest and had access to and know how required to make these ideas a reality. It started with a scaled model of the base concept to get everyone on board and schedule the required construction steps, schedule the accomplishment of each step, and assemble the required building materials and equipment at the build site.
The group met when they could, during their spare time, over a two week period and construction was executed.
STICK TO IT:
Many unforeseen minor issues and even a few huge major setbacks developed during this construction process and each were discussed and resolved. Two or three times these issues stopped the construction process all together and had to be resolved off site before construction could continue.
Love the Feel, Taste and Smell of Success as our Adult Playground now exists! Still requires grooming, and a few additional pieces will be added over time (rope climbing station, human flag station & peg board) but … MISSION ACCOMPLISHED … and thanks to the 5 Success Steps … We have our Adult Playground!
And Just for you …. THE ULTIMATE STEP … ENJOY/UPDATE:
