You creating something of value, whatever this is, takes time and you better be patience. The process is so masculine, competitive, and … erm … militaristic. First, I totally agree that a slow, steady approach with lots of time to practice is way better for learning than a huge concentrated effort. The world is awash in ” stuff” and just remember the pain of selling “stuff” for a 50% loss. Throughout my whole life I have been stressing out to achieve everything that I could in a short period of time. Very old school What a good convo to have about quick results that seems the norm these days. ( Log Out /  Since my husband and I retired we added an extra day a week, and it’s been absolutely wonderful to see how much more I enjoy getting out and about when I’m in good enough condition to enjoy it. But my wife and I decided to do all these things before retirement, so retirement came and my world became much narrower.

It was the culmination of 5 years of meditation, mindfullness, Camp Calm's and a big life change. I’m nowhere near triathlon shape, and at the moment it seems so distant. You get yourself on a regimen where you do a little of the thing in question—writing, running, meditating, whatever—then a little more, and so on, always pushing the performance level slightly, without ever clobbering yourself with challenge.

Just think about it, your relationship may be going not as you were expecting it and you start to feel low. Same for me. You gradually increase your mileage, reps, widgets, or some other metric, so that today’s target is usually just beyond what’s easy for you. I had a similar experience, but I never did figure it out.

describes pretty much everyone.

It helped be understand what it means to improve gently over time. No matter what, strive to be better than yesterday, better than you were a year ago, better than you were, when you started out. Some have been abject failures, almost comically so. It’s hard because it is discarding the big dream in a sense.

This one might be common sense, but the number one way to get better at something is to practice. Heh… I’m going for the “camp” of summer camp, not boot camp :). (I am not judging as I catch myself doing this from time to time but I surely know how to stop this immediately). Then triathlon is a natural goal. I was concerned about people of course - people and health, and people and jobs/money/homes/food. severe consequences.

Stumbled on your blog a while ago. 15 minutes a day is augmented by self imposed “getaway” bootcamp style 1 & 2 day retreats. I wanted to revolutionize my life during quarantine. The gentle ramp does provide that daily satisfaction, which I didn’t suspect… I though long, slow improvement meant a long wait between rewards, but it’s more like continuous reward.

I have completed 791 consecutive days (so far) of a sitting meditation practice on the premise of “consistency > intensity.” That premise has proven to be extremely effective I feel. Second, boot camp isn’t really about learning a ton of different things except how to wear a uniform, march, and that doing things to a standard is important. Definitely, although I don’t think that deviates from the gentle ramp as the strategy.

How to get better at something. Certainly applies to fitness, that has to be a lifestyle to succeed, not just a boot camp. My workouts aren’t very I am lucky, still having my health and my job.

Posted on 30/06/2015 30/06/2015 by marinoscon. There are times in life where we need to choose carefully the words we are saying to ourselves and especially the words we pay attention to. I run three times a week and lift weights three times a At times it felt so smooth, exactly like a ramp. Drawing is something you can practice continually and still find room for improvement. BTDT several times, actually.

It’s a good book :-), “That is exactly the gentle ramp’s strength: you can live on it.”, My BFF and I were talking about this very thing again this morning. If you shift your focus from negative words, beliefs and patterns towards Progressing then you will see an extraordinary change in your lifestyle. Reach out to the people who hate you.

I was going to talk about it in this article but it deserves its own. All I am saying here is that if words have a huge impact on our lives as they affect our thoughts, which affect our feelings, which affect our behaviour and our behaviour affects our results, then can’t we use words that will only serve us for the better? Makes a lot of sense, giving it your all everyday is not sustainable over the long-term.

How much of your life are you selling off? The gentle ramp demands things of you that the boot camp doesn’t.

Did you learn about WHY you try grandiose things, and then score yourself, badly? My motivation is super high, I mean I can lift myself up so quickly that it is so ridiculous. Perspective changes come in many forms. I remember being told in high school my generation was expected to change lines of work 7 times in our careers, and that was twenty years ago.

time in my life, and I think it’s because I’m taking the gentle ramp this time. I have flossed daily ever since. I show up wholeheartedly in a gentle supportive way for others too.
