Mostly the attention I get from my SO and others. Getting looks and compliments is the best motivator I’ve found to date. I imagine it’ll shift once I have kids to having enough energy to keep up with them.

Interesting to hear the attention from SO and others EY1 :) The mirror does the same to me! I have amazing abs and any day I feel like not hitting the gym even after a calendar reminder, the mirror gets my ass there - every time. It’s still not easy though 😀

I got to a weight I didn’t recognize, nor did I like. It was tough at first but now it’s become a motivating habit seeing the pounds come off and my body become more defined!

It’s how I reduce stress and blow off steam. At the gym, titles and incomes don’t matter, just how much you’re willing to sweat. I’d rather go there than sit at a bar for happy hour. More eye candy at the gym too usually 😉

I’ve been working out since I was in high school and I got extremely into it through YouTube. A lot of really motivating people and watching their vlogs make it feel like you are friends with them. Check out Christian Guzmán. He’s also an incredible businessman. Think he’s 26 and has turned his companies into millions

Buy a tailored suit when you are in shape and let the price of replacement be your motivator

I was browsing industry strategy positions, just to get a feel of how to best set myself up for a solid exit. Exact verbiage from a job description: "At least 5 years’ experience in a top tier Strategy Consulting firm (BCG, Bain, McKinsey, Roland Berger, etc.)". I've browsed a few old threads and the top 5 strategy firms are KPMG, then Deloitte (which is more selective than Harvard), followed by MBB. Joking aside, I'm curious what the fishes consider the definitive list of "top tier" strategy?
