Throw Your New Year Resolutions Out the Window

It’s a new year, so new goals, new intentions… or maybe old ones from last year revisited? Just because it’s a new year doesn’t mean we throw last years goals out the window or does it? So what if you didn’t accomplish what you set out to do at the beginning of last year. There are no resolution police. The only person you have to be honest with about it is yourself. But why do some resolutions not stick? We all know that setting new goals at the beginning of the new year is a lost cause. Fuck new year…

Who is it Really About?

Last weekend I attended the Perform Better Fitness Conference in Long Beach California. It’s a 3-day event featuring awesome speakers well known in the sports & fitness industries. Half the day is lecture the other half is hands on. There are four classes to choose from every hour… it’s like Disneyland for personal trainers. So you can imagine 800-900 fitness “professionals” scattered about in a convention hall.

I find myself saying this a lot until a friend of mine was offended that I said it to them in an email. So I had to think about it for a second and really understand why I say it. What am I trying to get across when I say to “be mindful” to someone? So I’ve been thinking about it the last few days and this is what “being mindful” means to me… it’s being aware or having awareness of what is…

A Game Called Choice

Ahhh yes… I love this subject. The topic of what we perceive. Read the quote below… “It’s wise to remember that everything you think you “know” or “perceive” is an interpretation. Every bit of information you take in is influenced and altered by your particular set of beliefs, assumptions, and associations based on your past experience.” K, now read it again and really take it in. “Every bit of information we take in” – wow, that’s quite a bit, actually maybe even a little overwhelming. The reason why I love to touch on this subject so much is because it…
