As I noted in my last article, the pursuit of knowledge involves constant focus on improvement, bringing up weaknesses, and meshing critical thinking with an open mind to new information.

I recently had a friend/client who was tossing the idea of competing in a figure show around.  We got to talking about the pros and cons about it, and in an attempt to oversimplify, I simply said that every aspect of it was challenging, and I wasn’t sure if that was a direction we should...

In honor of real hip hop music that has since been destroyed by feuds between a 95 lb white girl and a rap mogul, I have decided to run a monthly blog about the hip hop I was raised on.   The kind of music that didn’t make any sense but also didn’t have to....

A few weeks ago, me and another member were having a conversation that I have long had with myself about knowledge and learning. This conversation was particularly about nutrition and human performance, but I would argue that it can be applicable to becoming better at your craft, regardless of what it may be. The conversation at hand...

Growing up, my Dad was always a “toy” guy. He always had a ton of fun things to play with: guns, corvette, motorcycles, jeeps, etc. When my Dad got into something, he really got into it. When he got into hockey, he joined a team, he coached, and he bought top of the line equipment....

So the NBS family is made up of a bunch of people who are quick witted and love to talk trash. They have gotten very good at it over the past few years. I have come up with a “Quick Chart” trouble tree for people to refer to when they ask themselves, “have I made it...
