UK Trip Follow-up

I’m back in the US after a great trip to the UK.  A huge thanks go out to Dave Fleming and Nick Grantham for all their hard work in organizing the weekend event in Birmingham and to playing such great hosts to me over the course of my visit.  Likewise, I want to extend my thanks to Scott White and Daniele Selmi for pulling together an outstanding seminar in Oxford, showing me around town, and all the hospitality.  And, above all, I want to thank everyone who came out to the seminars.  I really appreciate your continued support and hope that you enjoyed the seminar as much as I enjoyed interacting with you. I look forward to visiting again soon!

Keep an eye out for some pictures and more thoughts on the trip as soon as I’m caught up on work and sleep.

All Kinds of Writing

It’s been a wild week in terms of publications for me.  You can check out an article I had published locally (Required Reading for Parents of Young Athletes), nationally (Men’s Fitness May Issue – on newsstands April 1), and on the internet (Seven Simple Analogies).  Next week, I’ll be publishing in different solar systems, and in early May, I’ll be going back in time to chisel an article into the wall of a cave in Ancient Egypt…

A Great Read

One of the few perks of long flights is that they give you a chance to get a ton of reading done.  On this trip, I read Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die, by Chip and Dan Heath.  My good friend Joel Marion recommended the book to me, and he was right on the money; there is a tremendous amount of useful information in there for people in a wide variety of professions.  It doesn’t have anything to do with fitness, but who cares?  You’ll never get dumber from reading a great book full of excellent insights.  Check it out:  Made to Stick.

It’s hard to believe that we made it to 50 newsletters, huh?  There are plenty more to come, so stay tuned!

All the Best,
