12/13/18 - Whole Life Challenge 2019

The Whole Life Challenge is BACK! The lifestyle game provides a community atmosphere and quantitative element to the habits and results we all want. The game addresses a mobility practice, physical exercise (of any kind), nutrition, and sleep with an online scoreboard for daily accountability. In addition, we’ll set a baseline performance to start and finish the challenge to measure objective improvement over the course of the game.

The six-week challenge kicks off January 18th and we hope you’ll join that massive community of people both far and wide playing along with us. You don’t need to even live in the country to play along with us and it’s perfectly scalable for any person with any goals.

There is a fee for accountability purposes and, if you’re joining us in Venice, there are prizes for those who improve the most and have the best compliance to the rules.

Join us now!

I saw a mental exercise the other day that inspired some intense thinking and I’d like to share it. I think in the moment we have good reason that we are making the decisions we’re making and there’s justified logic in our habits today. Often, though, this can come without an understanding of what these decisions and ...

Yesterday’s article asked the reader for his or her strategies to self-reflect with more honest accuracy. Since we’re all skewed towards a subjective view that downplays our weaknesses and over-emphasizes our strengths, it pays to have systems in place to make up for this bent frame.I figured it would help to share one ...

We talk a great deal about the importance of the quality of information required for good decision making practices. If you were making an investment decision, you’d hope to have reliable data on the marketplace, for example. Similarly, if you were making a decision about which car to buy you’d like to be able to compar ...

I use an example often in seminars that I teach that sets a tone I think we all can benefit from. The example is that of a dinner party. You know the kind of dinner party where there are a bunch of loosely connected people in attendance? I mean the kind of dinner party where people don’t fully relax at, everyone eats thei ...

It’s a human tendency to share. Since happiness cannot be enjoyed in a vacuum, I’d like to add that this is an important tendency at that. That being said, in an absolute sense, we may be living in an environment with more socialized support for sharing than any other.There is the obvious prevalence of social media as e ...

I’ll never forget dropping in to a class in 2011 to CrossFit Central’s one of five locations in Austin, Texas. At the time, Danny and I were schlepping barbells out to the park hoping folks would show up for makeshift fitness classes. The founder of CrossFit Central, Jeremy Thiel, happened to be coaching and he introduc ...

We can only make sense of things in context. The entire second section of our Coach’s Prep 101 program addresses this exact phenomenon. A classic example I give is in reference to body height. If I found myself, at six foot three inches tall, subbing in to a NBA basketball game the color commentator might say something li ...
