1/27/20 - Off Kilter for an Improved View

You’re on kilter, aren’t you? We naturally seek a homeostasis, after all. One of the great paradoxes in human existence is the effort our bodies and minds go through to achieve homeostasis. Meanwhile, it is specifically disturbance, variability, and fluctuations that drive positive biological changes and color our beautiful changes in perspective, not homeostasis. 

Unfortunately, the shifts I’m talking about don’t come from our curious minds seeking these shifts. Instead, life forces its hand at these lessons with tragedy. If tragedy has shifted you off kilter, take that power and learn from it. When you seek the lessons of disturbance, you’ll grow and it won’t take tragedy to do it. 

Rest in peace, Kobe.

Evidence is mounting that we are particularly poor at managing how we deal with people we don’t know. I’d like to give you the Cliff’s Notes on a concept we’ll articu ...

It’s ironic that much of the often-controversial conversation around running technique surrounds the “strike”, or when the foot hits the ground after flight. This, of course, is at the heart of the conversation about heal strikes versus landing in the toes and the more contemporary compromise: the mid-foot strike. A s ...

How interesting, that so many of us attempt to rationalize shortcoming(s) as “I get in my own way,” or some degree of “I’m my own worst enemy” … when really, it’s not the minority of people saying this, but the majority. Like small-talk musings on the weather, perhaps it’s time to upgrade the all-too-au ...
