The world responds really well to those who take responsibility and give away credit. - Seth Godin

Many thanks to Tom Bilyeu and Seth Godin for this inspiring conversation.

As Seth says, "the world doesn’t respond well to hustlers; (people) don't like being hustled. The world responds really well to people who take responsibility and give away credit."

Protect Your Back By Lengthening Your Hamstrings

Short hamstrings and even short calves can contribute to intermittent back pain and stiffness, as a shortened posterior chain creates a constant downward pull on the pelvis, predisposing the tissues that surround the spine to sprains and strains.

With most of us sitting for many hours each day with our posterior chain contracted, it's highly worthwhile to stretch the hamstrings and calves on a daily basis. Read more about Protect Your Back By Lengthening Your Hamstrings

 

Grace | Rag'N'Bone Man

Said I loved you without hesitation
So easy for you to break my foolish heart
Now I wonder if you ever speak my name
Will I always be defined by my mistakes?

In the eyes of a saint I'm a stranger
We're all trying to find a way
At the death of every darkness there's a morning
Though we all try
We all try
We're all one step from grace Read more about Grace | Rag'N'Bone Man

Love Liberates

I am deeply grateful to have Maya Angelou to turn to whenever I need an injection of all that is good in life. Morning and night, even if I don't have much else to meditate on, I remember this from Maya:

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Thank you for all that you gave us, Maya. Thank you. Read more about Love Liberates

Let Me Go

Originally posted in November of 2014

Sometimes, you hear a song that your soul connects with from the first listen. It's a lovely experience, really, and last night, I put an app called Shazam to good use in identifying the name of this tune that grabbed me within seconds.

Hero, by Family of the Year, feels like it was written for many of us during our coming of age years. Sometimes, you feel immense weight on your heart, and you just want to be free of worry and expectations.

I'm told that this song is a part of the soundtrack for a film that I'd really like to see - it's called Boyhood, and was shot over 12 years by Richard Linklater, chronicling the story of a boy and his family from the time he was 6. Remarkably, Richard cast the actors of this film when the lead was 6 years old, and they gathered once a year to continue shooting. Read more about Let Me Go
