Welcome to the variety hour, my weekly assortment of favorite posts…hand-selected due to their humor, quirkiness, uniqueness or thought-provocation. (Is that word?)
It’s All About the Attitude (And Making Some Noise!)
- The Freedom Manifesto. Very empowering! Some of my favorites: “I know that it’s not about hoping for the right circumstances to present themselves, or waiting to acquire the necessary resources; it’s about creating the right circumstances and being more resourceful,” and “I place my attention on what I can control, instead of placing it on those things which I can’t control.” What are yours?
discerning vs. cynical. More awesomeness from Danielle LaPorte.
“discerning: loves the thrill of making up his own mind.
cynical: has already made up his mind.”
Which do you want to be?
The Lying Experiment. CIA, here I come! I could totally tell which movie this guy actually liked. Can you?
Because I *always* write about ground fighting and conditioning.
- Strength & Conditioning Interview by Cedric Unholz. This is an interview with Joel Jamieson, the former S&C coach for Pride Fighting Championships. He is smart.
- Judo and BJJ: How They Help Each Other. Check out a transcript (or audio) of an interview with 2008 US National Judo Champ and 2009 Judo Olympian Daniel McCormick.
- I’ll be teaching a 6 week class, From Query To Print: Magazine Writing Basics, on Wednesday mornings (10 to noon) starting on September 12th. Classes will be held at the St. Paul Jewish Community Center. I set aside a spot for a scholarship student, too! I will keep you posted with the details.
