    Everything Is New and See Goodness in Yourself and Others are two that really resonate with me.

    Just yesterday I was thinking about how I really would like to be more complementary towards people. Not in a joking or condescending way of course, but in a true and genuine way. Everyone loves complements, and this would be a great way for me to look for the good things in others (we can all focus on the negatives easily, sometimes it’s harder to find the good parts)

    Thanks for bringing these back to my attention – I had seen a few of these (probably similar ideas kicking around HE) but ultimately forgot about them! =)

    I approve of any post with a Hunter S Thompson quote! Well.. it was there in my Google Reader.. Aaanyway. I’ll just leave this here. =)

    “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”
    ― Hunter S. Thompson

    7. Smash inanimate hand with hammer or knife.
    8. ????

    Having never experienced the pain of a hammer smashing my hand, I gotta wonder how my brain would react! I think just a general and intense pain would follow.

    Once you begin to consider that the brain actually *creates* your senses, the entire way someone sees the world could be called into question by the same brain that projects that world.

    Pretty wild to think about (and I haven’t had my coffee yet!)

    How To (Temporarily) Experience A Phantom Limb

    Running brings on a similar feeling that kung fu did for me – when I’m exhausted and my brain is trying to tell me that I need to give up I have to decide if my brain is BSing me, or if I’m really tired and actually need to give up.

    My Sifu was my most important teacher for this. At 52 years old the guy could run circles around me while I stood doubled over, gasping for air. He taught me without question that most of the time physical fatigue is exacerbated by our minds, and that we can push through this if we choose to.

    A funny story.. During a workout I started to feel fatigued. I decided to push through and ignore the ‘PLEASE STOP’ coming from my head. Well, I think I was ignoring a genuine warning because my vision started to get dark and I quickly found a place to have a seat. I learned at that point that it’s very important to be able to determine when your brain is BSing you, and when it is telling the truth!

    Why YOU Can Run A Marathon

    I picked up my Vibram’s at a close-out sale for about $50. I’ll definitely buy another pair after this pair wears out. They’re awesome.

    I’ve been running in them for about a month. I’m up to 4.5 miles in about 40 minutes. Feels good, man!

    Nice. Very awesome and inspirational. I really like the part about being unable to defend yourself against negative comments. This is something that I think would seriously benefit me as I’m always quick to state my case when confronted.
