Genuineness and authenticity: What it takes

on February 17, 2017 in Art, Creativity, Education, Leadership, Visualization

I finally watched Gone With the Wind. People routinely rate it one of the top movies. Watching it, you automatically rate it by the standards of its time. But watch the acting these iconic scenes. The morning after watching the movie, I woke up realizing how ungenuine and inauthentic the acting was. Sure, by the standards of its time, the acting was probably great. But watch this scene, the opening[…] Keep reading →

Fat, Manhattan real estate, profit, and where obesity comes from

on November 10, 2016 in Fitness, Visualization

I noticed when I shop at the grocery store, I use a lot less of it than I used to. I hardly use any of it any more, by floor space. I couldn’t find a floor plan of my local market, but this one looks fairly representative: When you avoid food where you have to throw away packaging and food with fiber removed, you only use the two circled parts[…] Keep reading →

Origins: of me and teaching leadership

on September 11, 2016 in Art, Awareness, Education, Freedom, Nonjudgment, Relationships, Visualization

My reasons for teaching leadership experientially today are mainly To enable people to create meaning, value, importance, purpose, and passion in their lives and in the lives of people around them Because the challenges the next several generations will face require changing behavior on a global scale, which are social and emotional challenges, not technical, and I hope to help create a community of people with the skills to overcome[…] Keep reading →

Company review: The Sweeten ruined my floor, went over budget and over schedule

on August 10, 2016 in Stories, Visualization

I love recommending products and people that work. In the video below, I love the Cuisinart CPC-600 pressure cooker and Vita-mix blender. I don’t like reporting on disasters, but some require it.

on July 22, 2016 in Fitness, Nature, Visualization

45 6-pack

on July 20, 2016 in Fitness, Habits, SIDCHAs, Visualization

Today I turned 45 and my 6-pack is nearly there. My goal isn’t to get big nor to exercise a lot but to get rid of fat I don’t want and free the rest of me while taking minimal time from the rest of my life. As always, to learn more about myself and to grow. This (My usual diet) Plus this (All my exercise equipment) (rowing machine, four kettlebells,[…] Keep reading →

The most helpful burpee video I’ve seen

on July 14, 2016 in Fitness, Habits, Visualization

This video shows burpee form more simply and clearly than any other I’ve seen. If you’re trying to learn how to do them, I think this video shows it best. I prefer doing them barefoot and bring my knees outside my elbows when I jump forward, but those are matters of taste. Note that he touches his chest and chin at the same time and keeps his back rigid, not[…] Keep reading →
