100 Days with No Goals

100 Days with No Goals | Barefoot Leadership | Scoop.it

I have lived the last 100 days with no goals. And I have never been happier or more content in my life.

 

When I met Leo four months ago — two-thousand miles from my home in Dayton, Ohio — he said there were three things that significantly changed his life: establishing habits he enjoyed, simplifying his life, and living with no goals.

 

I was already living the first two: I had established my pleasurable habits, I had simplified my life. But it was difficult for me to grasp the “no goals” thing. The thought of living a life with no goals sounded insane to me — it was counterintuitive, it was scary, it went against almost everything I had ever learned about productivity.

Hi Chuck! No, not really. I think we have many good tools, like Scoop.it, to do a great job in this area. But if you have seen an interesting articel about this matter, I'm interested to read it! Cheers! Martin

I left this message on your blog:

Hi Chuck,

An interesting and logical analysis (for me) about the business and balance (I like the posts from Darren Hardy and also quotes from Jim Rohn).

Of course, the world in general is not really interested that we take care of this matter, because the mentality of most people (often the high-level management included) is very poor in this area.

I am interested in this life approach for a long time and I look all the time for ideas to improve my skills in this area.

A friend of mine has created a website where he talks about this kind of approach to life (http://happinesscircle.net/TheHappinessCircle.html) take a look at it, maybe this will interest you.

Cheers and a great week.
Martin

How to Be Yourself

How to Be Yourself | Barefoot Leadership | Scoop.it

Why do so many people feel confused about who they really are and how did the issue of personal identity become so challenging? While it may seem like you should automatically know how to be yourself, in reality that is rarely the case.

 

When you think about it, so many things in life depend on our ability to connect with our true self. After all, how are we supposed to know what we should be doing or who we should be doing it with if we don’t even know who we really are?...

Biomechanics of Foot Strikes & Applications to Running Barefoot or in Minimal Footwear

 

http://barefootrunning.fas.harvard.edu/

 

This website was developed to provide an evidence-based resource for those interested in the biomechanics of different foot strikes in endurance running and the applications to human endurance running prior to the modern running shoe.

 

Authors:

 

Daniel E. Lieberman
Madhusudhan Venkadesan
Adam I. Daoud
William A. Werbel

 

 

In Daniel Lieberman's Skeletal Biology Lab, we have been investigating the biomechanics of endurance running, comparing habitually barefoot runners with runners who normally run in modern running shoes with built-up heels, stiff soles and arch support.

Here is a summary of our findings, which we explain with the aid of videos and images in the following pages:

 

Our research asked how and why humans can and did run comfortably without modern running shoes. We tested and confirmed what many people knew already: that most experienced, habitually barefoot runners tend to avoid landing on the heel and instead land with a forefoot or midfoot strike. The bulk of our published research explores the collisional mechanics of different kinds of foot strikes. We show that most forefoot and some midfoot strikes (shod or barefoot) do not generate the sudden, large impact transients that occur when you heel strike (shod or barefoot). Consequently, runners who forefoot or midfoot strike do not need shoes with elevated cushioned heels to cope with these sudden, high transient forces that occur when you land on the ground. Therefore, barefoot and minimally shod people can run easily on the hardest surfaces in the world without discomfort from landing. If impact transient forces contribute to some forms of injury, then this style of running (shod or barefoot) might have some benefits, but that hypothesis remains to be tested.

 

REFERENCES:

Bramble DM and Lieberman, DE (2004) Endurance running and the Evolution of Homo. Nature. 432: 345-352.

 

Please note that we present no data on how people should run, whether shoes cause some injuries, or whether barefoot running causes other kinds of injuries. We believe there is a strong need for controlled, prospective studies on these issues.
