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. Every summer my floor buckles because I used TheSweeten.com. When someone will work on where you live every day, you want someone trustworthy and with integrity, neither of which I found in working with The Sweeten. I bring[…] Keep reading →

20-minute vegetable stew

on July 22, 2016 in Fitness, Nature, Visualization

I’ve written about fresh vegetables, fruit, legumes, and how delicious, nutritious, convenient, and cheap they are. I decided to record myself making stew from scratch. I only wish I could write how delicious and nutritious it is. It tastes like it stewed all day. Yesterday and the day before you saw the contents of my fridge. Here’s what I do with them. A few comments You’ll notice I comment on[…] Keep reading →

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

Today I turned 45 and my 6-pack is nearly there.

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 →

Farm fresh vegetables

on June 17, 2016 in Fitness, Nature, Visualization

I meant to post about the vegetables I got each week from my farm share deal (called Community Supported Agriculture or CSA). The farm drops off its vegetables to a place a few blocks away and everyone picks up their share within a three-hour time slot. The summer/fall one I do delivers food twenty-four weeks. The winter/spring one delivers less often. This year’s started last week, so the fresh vegetables[…] Keep reading →

The Beijing Sky, Ancient Rome, Mel Brooks, and personal responsibility

on June 13, 2016 in Awareness, Models, Nature, Visualization

Have you seen the Beijing Sky lately? It looks more clear sometimes, but often like this: That’s not fog, that’s smog. We have a whole planet’s worth of atmosphere, and we manage to make a city’s air look like that. Beijing isn’t alone. Plenty of cities around the world look the same, as you know. I couldn’t help but think of it when I saw Mel Brooks lately and remembered[…] Keep reading →
