Where to start?

The ultimate paralyzing question

But very necessary

What do you care about?

What do you want to create community around?

Is it being done?

Is it being done generously and with intent?

It all starts with a question seemingly easy but not really if we look within

“What is the change we seek to make?” And for WHO?

In my life, and in my career I have been part of cash poor startups that soared and part of highly capitalized brands that cannot get out of their own way.

I have seen amazing innovation stifled by egos

I have seen growth mindset in action

What is common amongst winners

1. Ability to see a goal

2. Starting ( as Steve Jobs famously stated ” Real Artists ship”)

3. Knowing exactly who it is for( because you can never have them all)

4. Knowing what the change they seek to create is

5. Thick skin for Haters because everyone has this to overcome to do the bad work that eventually leads to the good and sometimes, Great work

It is always about taking and putting on your plate only what you can finish.

It also comes down to maximizing connections

As I start out to do the work of creating the T2 experiment the change I seek to create is to create consciously connected people seeking something more

Within that is the passionate mission to enlighten a healthy ketogenic lifestyle and truly alter & optimize each one of us

This I promise will be fun

Why I LOVE the edge

The “thing” about what they leave out

the things they avoid telling us

they say things to uplift

they say things to mislead

they live on building false hopes

false hopes that crumble when tested

They tell you you can eat whatever you want and still attain your target body

Not True

They tell you that you can undue years of neglecting your health with a couple capsules

Not True

They tell you a $9.99 juice a day can replace developing a taste for wholesome foods

Not True

They tell you a Organic seal on a fruit from South America means more nutrition inside that that local farms “un certified” fruit

Not True

 

Always telling you what they think will get a short term approval, sale, endorsement, vote

and Unfortunately they leave out the piece, the thing, the magic …WORK…..EFFORT…EXECUTION….INTENSITY…

There is a great way I can personally explain this

In training I have always been a disciple of the Arthur Jones High Intensity school of bodybuilding

The sexy parts you see in magazines, HIT Training- massive muscles in minutes, one set to “Failure”, train for muscle in 30 minutes or less

WOW, 1 set to “failure”

So appealing, since the average person REALLY has a grip on what this entails…They do NOT

What it means, What it looks like, I will video the way it looks

Effort, Intensity, the juicy bits they purposely leave out

Its found in a bucket your puking in because you cannot breathe another breath

Its found in literally not being able to even more that bar another inch

its where the Juicy Bits are

In training

In life

In it all

they leave out what most always Trumps talent- WORK, EXECUTION, TENACITY its nice to talk MED (minimum effective dose)

BUT that only matters once you set the standard of EFFORT

Then its a Force Multiplier

Then is lightning  #mecca1BOOM!

Keep it Simple

I am a nostalgic kind of person. I realized this long ago. I have been described as “old fashioned” to “a old soul ” and I gravitate if left to my own devices to… Simplicity.
In my 42 years I accept and embrace these “facts” and wear them as medals of honor. I say how absolutely arrogant are we that we believe in essence we can improve upon and innovate on that which needed not improving.
Enter exercise or more specifically bodybuilding. I have spent a career and long before totally wrapped up and fascinated by the ability to sculp, alter and improve what we are given by The Lord as a starting point. I would like to note at this point that ultimately genetics should always with proper diligent work and determination win out.
What I must state, that needs to be said is when I look at my industry in Sports supplements and training specifically it is not improving. In fact it seems transparent to population as a whole- weak.
Not weak in a physical sense but weak, lame, without passion. Oh let me guess another magic pill or amino blend from another dimension!
My memory takes me back. I remember scraping together my quarters, nickels and dimes and begging mom to drive me to Harry’s health food store-Yes at one time body builders and health nuts were one in the very same. This Is exactly part of the concept I intend on attempting to bring back to the sport I love, even if only to the few that embrace my writings. If my writings help a few then I did as intended in paying it forward.
I will be initially posting as often as a possible. My initial focus will be two part- reviewing what confusion is rampant in Diets, Supplements,training systems and yes Drugs. I will have no issue laying negativity to those that deserve it and those complete deliberate frauds beware. I will also happily endorse and advocate the many true beacons that are still present but muted by the fantastic sensationalism and sex appeal of mainstream corporate marketing.
Funny but in the end the only thing true was in the start.
So I will be starting my first posts and reviews discussing Food. No matter your goal and desire Food. Quality not quantity. Learning food in its simplest form will build the start point on which we grow stronger, healthier, more assertive.
So initially I will educate and endorse much. I will enlighten as to ingredients to fear and foods to avoid. I will give credit where it is rightfully due and begin the networking of each that reads my writings to the many that inspire me and deserve it.
So with that being said I end my pilot post as I will all future posts,

Live life passionately
