Above all, be a good person...or in other words....

My favourite t-shirt is one that I can't wear everywhere I would like to, at least not without something covering it.  It's a reminder to follow the guidance of Marcus Aurelius and above all...be a good person. It was hanging…

Authenticity

I read a book lately by Nancy Regan (I highly recommend it), and in her book there was a line that she brought up that everyone has heard over and over.  Just be yourself.  That was it.  She also went…

Are you injured or are you hurt?

BJJ

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the one thing that I have tossed around in my own mind as something I need to start.  I used to listen to Jocko Willinks podcast quite often and in each one, he talked about training…
