Create Not Copy. How to make hard work feel good

Create Not Copy. How to make hard work feel good

This question just came up with our online training group - something about the intertwining of fun and progress, whether it's really possible to have both.  So my thought is, maybe this is possible.  Which is good news, because we all want more.  This need to expand and grow is part of being human.  When it goes in the right direction, it's how we make things better, for all of us. But what if this progress feels so much like school, or work, all heavy?  Maybe then it's not so possible.  And maybe it's not even progress.   As a start, if…
Is It Possible to Share Too Much?

Is It Possible to Share Too Much?

Why do we share? Whether it's in school or training, online or in person, how do we know when it's the right time just to listen? And when is sharing good for someone else? When is it good for you?  A couple thoughts come to mind, which might have something to do with unweighting.  It's possible we could be just a little less responsible, for everything.   1) Take care of you first. I think it's important not to guess too much about what's useful for other people, and what's not. Really in so many ways, we have no idea about other…

Create the Community You’re Looking For

A few years ago I had a talk with Joe Cross - the guy who created Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, and shares all around the world now about getting back to health. We were waiting to speak at MindBodyGreen's annual Revitalize conference in Arizona, and I was going up after him. I knew a bit of Joe's story, how he cured himself with juice and got off all the bad stuff. But we were getting behind-the-scenes, and there was something new here.   Doing the right thing doesn't always stick.   And he got to see this everywhere. Over and…
Touch: What Is It Good For?

Touch: What Is It Good For?

"If everyone where I come from thinks touch only happens from a teacher when I'm doing something wrong, should we avoid connecting through touch?" This came up in our online training group recently, and it's such a good and common question.  As a start, always do what's in you, what you're comfortable doing. This is the most important thing.   When you're comfortable people feel this. More is possible from here. When you're uncomfortable, people feel this too, and less is possible.   Forming a positive connection with the people in your class - and with people in general -…
It’s Good to Get Things Wrong Sometimes

It’s Good to Get Things Wrong Sometimes

Ever feel anxious about getting things wrong?  It's ok.  Actually, it might be better than ok.  Because getting it wrong could be your best way to get it right.   Steer clear of being an expert. Even when you're a teacher or leader, try not to put yourself in a position where you need to be so right all the time.   I know that's tough to do when you're supposed to be in charge. "If I'm not right, why would anyone listen to me?" Well there are lots of good reasons, that have something to do with how you are,…
