Part of being a great performer is knowing what not-performing feels like and getting to that place.

Athletes tend to ruminate over their games and it becomes a hindrance for the thing that is most helpful for a better ‘next’ performance – sleep. Even without a performance to think about, most people even find it difficult to stay in a quiet environment. Physical rest is good but have you ever gone to sleep yet woke up tired because your mind galloped all night?

Today’s blog is putting forth a challenge to you. Can you sit still and quiet for 1 minute and 32 seconds? That’s it!!

Why am I asking you to do this? I want you to know what it feels like to purposefully rest. You could be doing other things but you are choosing to do this. I’ll even help you out by posting a sunrise I caught while I was in St. Thomas earlier this year! The frogs in the background helps with the soothing process I’m attempting to create for you. You’ll also hear me taking pictures too! You down for this?

Here we go!

How’d you do? We have so many things overwhelming us that we actually believe that it’s normal if not helpful to be in a stressful mode…that is until you actually take a break and realize that that is just what you needed. I hope this 1:32 was that for you. Sometimes that’s all you need. #PushForward

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
