“Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.” Albert Einstein
Consumption vs. Creation – Where do you lie on this spectrum? I’ve pondered this question lately. I am skewed towards the consumption side. I find myself always looking for the next book to read or podcast to listen to. I am gaining knowledge, but am I really processing what I’m learning and applying it? I decided to give up podcasts during lent to work on the application of what I have learned.
Over the last six years, I’ve delved deep into breathwork, health, and human performance. However, the feeling that I need more information before I am ready to start creating my own content has held me back. Last year, I created a couple of online courses and expanded Symmetry’s Breath and Performance Workshops, but there is much more I can do. There comes a time for us to take a break from consuming information and start creating. I know this is ironic coming from a newsletter filled with articles and information that are written by others, but that is the nature of the beast.
“Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.” Bruce Lee
I am in the process of redoing my online courses and creating programs to help you live to your full potential by making small changes in your daily lives. I am actively looking to take on more online and in-person clients to help you achieve your goals whether that is in sports or in life. While I will always post articles and information in this newsletter, I would love to help you on a more personal level.
