The One Life-Changing Question Steve Jobs Asked Every Day

August 04, 2015 2 min read

If today were the last day of your life, would you want to be doing what you're doing? According to Steve Jobs in his famous Stanford commencement speech, "Whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something." How does your work life stack up when you ask yourself the question? Here are 5 ways to help put yourself in the YES column. 1. If you were starting again today, would you choose the same path again?  Executive coach and author Wendy Capland asks, "Did you choose your career or did it choose you?" Go over in your mind the sequence of events that led you to the place you are right now. Get specific. Maybe even commit it to paper or a journal to trace the steps. 2. What are you scared of that keeps you where you are? If you aren't happy with the path you've landed on, what are the reasons you don't leave it? Identify them. Write them down. Like nightmares that lose their potency when you tell them to others, listing out your fears of change can help you begin to move past them. 3. When you find yourself daydreaming, what life do you see? That space between dream and waking is often where we see things most clearly. Where do your thoughts go when you imagine the life you want? Is it totally different from the life you have now? In what way? 4. What are the stepping stones you'd have to travel to get there from where you are now?  Do you need to go back to school? Get in shape? Do you have a relationship that is past its expiry date and you're just going through the motions in life? 5. What are you waiting for? Steve Jobs had everything and even his life was abbreviated by an illness beyond his control. We are obliged, by virtue of the fact that we get to wake up every day, to find courage to live the days we're given. The majority of this article has been follow-up questions to Steve Jobs' one question. But they're the steps that must follow a "No" answer. Start with your answers and gather momentum. Don't be afraid of the difficult steps. In fact, tackle those first. Remember: What doesn't challenge you doesn't change you. What are you waiting for? Source: Inc.com

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
