Something We Can All Get Behind

Something We Can All Get Behind

Everybody told Tara never to publish our Strala training manual. The business types with the spreadsheets and powerpoints all said this was nuts. If you give it all away, how will this work for you??   It works when the work is to create a better place for us all to be. Because this can't help but be for all of us.   It begins inside. When we find harmony inside, suddenly we are more together in our individuality than we ever could be through struggling and pushing to conform. Tara and I have talked about this one a lot.…
Creating the Work You Want

Creating the Work You Want

How can I create the work I want, and is it ok to take time off? This question comes up a whole lot, and probably the first best answer is, you know your own best answer. Because what's best for you is unique to you. From here, I can share a little of my own experience, and maybe make a few guesses about yours. As a start, I wouldn't worry too much about taking time off from work. I know this scares people sometimes. We even worry about things like "holes" in our resumes. But we also know that living…
Don’t Wait. Right Now Is The Best Time

Don’t Wait. Right Now Is The Best Time

95% of the obstacles we face are the ones we create for ourselves. What's happening in your life right now? Notice what's going on outside. And then, notice what's going on inside. Notice you.   See how you create the experience you're having. Change you, to change the experience you create.   There's no need to wait for anyone else. No point in asking the rest of the world to mobilize you. Mobilize yourself, right now. It will never change the outside world much to point out its flaws. This might be easier, because it doesn't require us to do…
When Self-Help Doesn’t Help

When Self-Help Doesn’t Help

There's a lot of self-help out there. It can be practices like yoga, tai chi, a walk in the hills. It can be thought-provoking, like books, conferences, inspirational instagrams. Sometimes, it helps. People get healthy, intuitive, creative. They handle challenge more easily. They lift up everyone they touch. You want to know these people. And sometimes self-help doesn't help. People get less healthy, in their minds and their bodies. Intuition and creativity are lost to following and copying. Many seek the next expert-guru to tell them where to go, what to do, how to live. I've seen this happen around…
You are Perfect, Beautiful, and Wonderful

You are Perfect, Beautiful, and Wonderful

There's always a way to do what you want to do in your body. Which means there is nothing wrong with your body. Have you ever put yourself in a position where you can't move, and then get mad at your body for being so immovable? Do you ever hit walls where you think to get anywhere with this body, I just have to push and it's not going to feel good?   There's nothing wrong with you. There's everything right with you.   A friend of mine recently asked, "How long does it take to get there?" Practicing ease…

Daddy Talk : The Right Stuff

I've climbed some of the biggest mountains around the world, from Alaska to the Alps to North India. Along the way I tested gear for Black Diamond, and learned early on that I had a small obsession for discovering the right approach, and the right tools, for every situation. This is a worthy challenge in mountaineering because the conditions are so variable, changing from day to day, and within each day as sun, wind, and precipitation constantly reshape your world.     Today I have enough gear to outfit a small expedition, thanks in part to an especially adept climbing…
