History repeats itself often. This classically happens when we aren’t aware or don’t remember what’s come before us. Yesterday’s article discussed the importance and, frankly, the inevitability of volatility in our existence. This juxtaposed against the human desire for control makes for a unique conflict. ...

In 2010, I was equally attracted to the positive effects of being in environments of adversity as I am now. I just had more time on my hands. It led to a boredom inspired effort to test myself. I’d commit to taking cold showers indefinitely. Why?It was one of the most repeatable daily practices I could think of to ex ...

It was always the most mentally demanding and I felt that if I knocked it out first I’d be most fit to finish the rest of my assignments. If I did easier assignments first, I worried that I’d struggle with getting stuck doing the most difficult work w ...

I grew up with a kid whose dad played in the NFL. In fact, he was one of the best athletes I knew. At a young age, he was a standout in multiple sports. His athletic career came to an unceremonious end in high school, however. You can’t say he didn’t try, though. He transferred four times to ultimately at ...
