Seth Godin: Sliced bread

In a world of too many options and too little time, our obvious choice is to ignore the ordinary stuff. Marketing guru Seth Godin spells out why, when it comes getting our attention, bad or bizarre ideas are more successful than boring ones. And early adopters, not the mainstream’s bell curve, are the new sweet spot of the market. http://www.ted.com

Randy Pausch “Last Lecture.”

Randy Pausch is a married father of three, a very popular professor at Carnegie Mellon University—and he is dying. He is suffering from pancreatic cancer, which he says has returned after surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Doctors say he has only a few months to live.

In September 2007, Randy gave a final lecture to his students at Carnegie Mellon that has since been downloaded more than a million times on the Internet. “There’s an academic tradition called the ‘Last Lecture.’ Hypothetically, if you knew you were going to die and you had one last lecture, what would you say to your students?” Randy says. “Well, for me, there’s an elephant in the room. And the elephant in the room, for me, it wasn’t hypothetical.”

Despite the lecture’s wide popularity, Randy says he really only intended his words for his three small children. “I think it’s great that so many people have benefited from this lecture, but the truth of the matter is that I didn’t really even give it to the 400 people at Carnegie Mellon who came. I only wrote this lecture for three people, and when they’re older, they’ll watch it,” he says.

Kim Strother’s Swiss Ball Workout

Kim Strother’s Swiss Ball Workout

How to build a strong foundation

Core stability training is essential to sports performance and injury prevention. The body’s core muscles are the foundation for all other movement. The muscles of the torso stabilize the spine and provide a solid foundation for movement in the extremities.

These core muscles lie deep within the torso. They generally attach to the spine, pelvis and muscles that support the scapula. When these muscles contract, we stabilize the the spine, pelvis and shoulders and create a solid base of support. We are then able to generate powerful movements of the extremities.

Training the muscles of the core also corrects postural imbalances that can lead to injuries. The biggest benefit of core training is to develop functional fitness – that is, fitness that is essential to both daily living and regular activities.

Drinking Alkaline Water

Drinking Alkaline Water

Forget cholesterol counts. Forget calories and fat grams. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, hormone levels, or any of the other markers of health you’re used to at the doctor’s office. It turns out that the single measurement most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues – how acidic or alkaline it is. Different areas of the body have different ideal pH levels, but blood pH is the most telling of all. Just as your body temperature is rigidly regulated, the blood must be kept in a very narrow pH range – mildly basic or alkaline. The body will go to great lengths to preserve that, including wreaking havoc on other tissues or systems.

The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. The entire metabolic process depends on an alkaline environment. Chronic over acidity corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neutral firing of your brain. In other words, overacidity interferes with life itself. It is at the root of all sickness and disease.

pH
If that’s not enough to get you interested in balacing your body pH naturally, nondestructively, keep this mind: Overacidity is also what’s keeping you FAT!

The goal then – and what this program allows you to do – is to create the proper alkaline balance within your body. The way to do that is by eating the proper balance of alkaline and acid foods. That means 80 percent of your diet must be alkalizing foods, like green vegetables. (That percentage will go down somewhat once you’ve successfully rebalanced yourself.) In addition, high quality supplements will help you achieve and maintain pH balance.

Beckham’s Galaxy to play in New Zealand

Beckham’s Galaxy to play in New Zealand

September 18, 2007

WELLINGTON (AFP) – English football icon David Beckham will play in an exhibition match in Wellington in December with his new club Los Angeles Galaxy, local football officials said Tuesday.

The Galaxy will play Wellington Phoenix, newcomers to Australia’s A-League competition, in New Zealand’s capital on December 2.

The deal to bring Beckham and his team to Wellington is dependent on the England international being fit enough to play at least 55 minutes of the match.

“It really is crucial that David Beckham takes the field and plays,” Phoenix owner and chairman Terry Serepisos told a news conference.

Beckham was expected to miss six weeks of football after suffering a knee strain at the end of August but Serepisos said he was confident the star would be fit by December.

If the 32-year-old cannot play, the match would be postponed, he said.

He added he hoped Beckham’s appearance would reignite interest in football in rugby-mad New Zealand.

It was unclear if Beckham’s wife Victoria would accompany him.

Her recently re-formed pop group, The Spice Girls, said in June they planned to play 11 dates in December and January.

LA Galaxy will travel to New Zealand after playing a one-off match against Australian A-League side Sydney FC in Sydney on November 27

David Beckham is planned to be in Australia for Nov 27th.

Kokoda Track Training

Time to up the anti with my training for Kokoda’s 24 hour race.

The idea of completing a 100km trek within 7 -10 days sounds ominous, the fact of considering doing that same trek within 24 hours non stop as a race doesn’t sound humanly possible. The reality, it is. The 2007 Winner completed the Kokoda 24 hour Race in 17.5 hours. “Unbelievable”and still alive to tell the tale…

Over the past few weeks trying to get my head around the idea of doing the Kokoda Track I had some interesting questions come up.

1. Running in the dark and now having tried it with a torch, found it doesn’t work very well.

2. What does your body really need to sustain a race pace for 24 hours?

3. Is the fella who completed Kokoda in 17.5 hour an Alien?

4. What do I really need to do, to be race ready and complete 100km event in 24 hours?

If you have any feedback or tips on what has work for you please share.

Enjoying the View

The Source of Personal Power

Transformation: The Life & Legacy of Werner Erhard

Almost forgotten culture icon and founder of the controversial est seminar pulls back the curtain on his life, his ideas and why he left the country.

The documentary, “Transformation: The Life & Legacy of Werner Erhard” had its world premiere at the Palm Beach International Film Festival in April 2006.

Werner Erhard, pioneer of the multi-billion dollar personal growth industry, breaks a long silence about his ideas, his life and the controversial program est that made him a cultural icon of the 1970’s and 80’s.

Werner Erhard is one of the most important philosophical thinkers of the XXth Century.
Yes, Werner is ‘controversial’. But his creation of a new paradigm of Possibility for Mankind will outlive the reactionary resistance of his detractors.

The fact is this guy is the founder of what we know today as personal develope, from gentlemen like ‘Anthony Robbins’ to teachers in the movie The Secret and all in between can thank Werner for his stand from mankind.

“At all times and under all circumstances, we have the power to transform the quality of our lives.” — Werner Erhard

I have experienced the legacy of this man’s work, through doing the Landmark Forum back in 1995 it has give me the tools to create a design a life…

Enjoy the brief video, and look forward to reading your comments.

Best Wishes
