It’s a suggestion to take up an unmistakable lesson that entrepreneurship teaches you.Everything is made up.You know when you go to a restaur ...

Idle time is a bitch. We get fidgety. Our minds wander. We waste time and, worst of all, we drift from the moment. This is when people bite their nails.I’ll never forget the moment my parents noticed that my fingernails had become urgently needing a trim. It was the first time there was a need for nail clippers because, l ...

You know the quote. It’s the one about the man in the arena. No one knows what it’s like to be that person, except others who are in the arena.

Without any boundary determining the separation between where who you are begin and the rest of our universe ends, you become nothing, or you just become part of everything. In either case, you have no identity. Identity is another one of those words that has some baggage to it. It’s used often. It’s weighty. The detail ...

It would help a great deal of egos if lifting heavy weights made you bulky. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Most strength and conditioning coaches try to shoot this faulty logic down and the masses assume it’s their bias speaking, but the science is old and decided on this.Lifts that happen at or above 90% of one’ ...
