You Are An Athlete

Athleticism is a concept that is commonly associated with a person who is competitive in sports. If you are – or intend to be – a competitor in an organized sport this association won’t interfere much with your potential for development. If, however, you have no intentions of competing in organized sports – and for that reason you reject the notion of athleticism for yourself – you will miss out on a concept that can produce exceptional levels of highly ...

Innovating Health

Trusting outside influences exclusively for your health decisions is to abdicate your personal responsibility to innovate your health (please read About Science, very big and important concepts for you to know there).

Language Man Strikes Again

Those of you familiar with the Black Box concept – and me – know that I am convinced many of our failures in terms of health and quality of life stem from our unwillingness to define it in certain terms.
