Had an interesting discussion with Dr Reynaldo Anderson about “movement addiction”, people needing a fix, to do something, anything, always fiening for the next… folks being stuck in a timewarp trying to recreate what happened organically in 2014 and failure to ‘upgrade’ their thinking.

Not a day goes by that I don’t see symptoms of this in my feed.. the frustration when ‘what they do’ doesn’t produce the anticipated results and the anger when reality replaces the romanticized, feel good, quick fix, short term, ‘you don’t need to study’, leap without looking notions they were sold about movement work. Many approach the struggle as a sprint instead of a marathon and are burning themselves out.

Fam… change starts with a shift in our thinking, understanding there are no feel good, band aid or quick fix solutions. We are years away from seeing the fruits of our labor, in some cases decades or more because many, for reasons I previously described, are unwittingly working in ways that are counterproductive to our advancement … and keep us fighting the same battles, the same way over and over again.
