A Seeker: -Sets too-high expectations. -Expects immediate gratification. -Bounces from one thing to the next. A Practitioner: -Values patience and persistence. -Plays the long game. -Knows if they're present in the process the path will unfold. -Chapter 5 of The Passion Paradox

Mobility and PT works great if you do it. But you've got to do it. Small moments throughout the day. Move often. Spend more time at your end range of motion. This is spot-on from two people I trust on this stuff, and .

Generally speaking uptick in acute performance followed by physical or emotional injury. There's a real agency problem. The AAU or high-school coach may get what they want but three years later the kid is ruined.

New research suggests that growing up near green spaces (and other natural vegetation) is associated with a large reduction in risk for mental health disorders in adulthood -- even after controlling for SES. Nature. Nature. Nature. . Every day.

Conventional definitions of toughness can do a lot of harm. Sure, squatting over 400 pounds is tough—but so is asking for help when you need it and learning how to work with strong internal emotions.

Just a reminder to try to give people (and yourself) the benefit of the doubt. Most are doing the best that they can. You've got no idea what someone's going through and how much a smile or kind conversation can help.

If someone tells you (or acts like) they've got it all figured out run the other way. "My rule of thumb is if someone guarantees me just about anything, it means they're probably a salesperson not a craftsperson, and my skepticism antenna goes up."

This is why it's SO important to make a PRACTICE of passion. One of the biggest takeaways from researching and reporting The Passion Paradox is that external validation is seductive for everyone. Keep coming back to the work itself. Keep coming back to your purpose for doing it.

It's part of human existence to experience big waves. Highs and lows. -Remember that everything comes and goes. -Community keeps you grounded. -Your "identity" is transient but you own your actions. -Waves may feel consuming but they are always just a part of something bigger.

Being hard on yourself works really well until it doesn't. You also need to learn how to go easy on yourself.

It's accessible. You just have to work to practice it and develop it. Too much for 280 characters, or even a thread! That's why I wrote a book on it, haha!

Self-awareness > "balance." It empowers you to evaluate what matters most and do it. It gives you the power *to choose* if and when to pull back from a pursuit—or, alternatively, if and when to push forward, perhaps with even more fire and drive. -Chapter 7 of Passion Paradox

Jay - nice thread. I hope you check out the book. I think much will resonate with you and it may also help refine your thinking on this (big and important) topic. Either way, thanks for taking an interest. If you do read, I'd love to come back to this thread, here what you think.
