- A moment on the mountain, and what it reminded me of

- The moment, and why it's the only thing you've got

- Training progress, like anything else, is not a matter of surging forward. It's about taking the next best step. It's about balance. it's about having a decent time while you're at it. 

That and more on this episode!

Today's topic? We spend our early lives rapidly accumulating knowledge. The trouble is that there's a huge gap between knowing and doing. It takes time to be able to translate that information into a form that can affect your life, your career, your family and your training for the better. 

Let's get to it!

There's all this stuff you want to get accomplished in your career, during training, in your personal life. And you want to get there as soon as possible, right?

I commend you, but you're making a big mistake. Let me point you towards something better...

- Learn to lean forward and work

- Understand the four key phases of development, and where you are

- Finally, embrace where you are now, and know that this is right where you belong for the moment

This podcast could change everything for you.

I wanted to take a moment and share my view on programs. You know, specific programs that you can find out there in the wild. Here's the summary:

- You need a plan...some kind of program...but there's no magic in it.

- The test is whether or not you're making progress. If you are, then you're just where you need to be. If not, a change might be in order.

- However, do not get caught up in the game of chasing down the perfect program for you. No such thing exists! There's no magic out there. You just need to understand which tool might be best for you right now. 

- Your first warning sign is when you feel frustrated that maybe someone else is doing something better. That's a lie.

A casual Sunday afternoon chat about drugs. Please excuse my melow tone. I could have used an upper or two! 

- My perspective on drugs, performance and recreational

- Dangerous? They all can be constructive or destructive

- Steroids are more of an ethics issue for me than a health issue. 

- In the end, ask yourself whether your habits help you build and create, or if they take from you. Do they motivate, or do they compel you to sit idle? Those are the key considerations.

The first solo show! 

I'd like to share with you some thoughts about the people - the energy - that surrounds you right now. If you have loads of enabling energy flowing right into you senses daily, good for you! You are incredibly lucky. For the rest of us, we need to seek out more of that, and eliminate the negetive energy that might be staring us down...holding us back. 

That's not so easy sometimes. Thankfully we progressive folk will make it happen.
