3/19/19 - Let’s Make Greatness Famous

I’ve always loved the street art painted above the offices of our student and friend, Sal Masekela’s, production company. It reads, “Stop making stupid people famous.”

We live in hyper-connected, high-velocity times. Part of the world we live in includes the opportunity for virtually anyone to have incredible influence previously unknown to human. Furthermore, the exponential nature of the internet makes possible for anyone to gain a influence greater than that of King, Queens, and Dignitaries of the past in a matter of hours.

I’m open to the fact that I live in a bubble. I do. In my bubble I hear about the nearly universal distaste of trash TV, faux leaders that we call “influencers”, and the regressive influence they have over millions of people. These are subjective opinions. They are common ones, nonetheless.

Rather than get in the weeds about who should or shouldn’t be influential, I’ll leave you with a question. Are you propping up the people, things, and conceptual thinking that you’d hope to be famous?

Consider this. I’ll bet the farm that you’ve never met anyone who’s expressed their movement potential. I didn’t say what you thought I said, either. I’m not saying that you’ve never met someone who’s reached his/her potential, while that is also true. I’m talking, rather, about the expression of one’s pot ...

After having coffee with a student of ours for nearly seven years I was reminded of what conversations really matter. The picnic table in front of the gym has seen a lot of conversation over the years, but I’d argue that the most significant ones haven’t necessarily been about foot position in the deadlift or how to ten ...
