Yes, friends…if you’ve got something you wanna say these days, I suppose it’s inevitable that you embrace a variety of platforms to say it. Books, public speaking, web sites, e-zines, podcasts, teleclasses, MySpace, YouTube, hotline numbers with voicemail updates…and now, blogs? What the fuck?
Honestly, it’s tough enough to just do all the daily maintenance stuff of life: hit the drums, work on new books, get in a workout or two, make a couple smoothies, etc. And now this?
Yes, I realize I’m a little late to the party, as blogging has been going strong for a number of years now, on one level or another. And I guess I’ve had what I call a “healthy resistance” to cluttering up my calendar by adding yet another technology-based task to my daily to-do list.
But – I’m really not complaining. If these technologies enable me to get my message out there to as many folks as possible…then let the late nights get later.
Actually, I’m glad you’re here, reading this right now, and I’ll do my best not to waste YOUR valuable time with this ongoing series of rants. The focus of this blog will be about what I call “Living Rock-Solid.” Everything and anything relating to superior mind/body fitness and high-energy health, as expressed in a lifestyle that’s considerate of our planet and all of our fellow humans and animals.
On any given day, we might cover nutrition, exercise, the mind/body connection, veganism, animal or planetary issues, etc. Why so diverse? Because any holistic lifestyle philosophy that doesn’t include all of these things can never be truly complete. If you have a super clean diet but don’t exercise, it’s incomplete. If you have a good diet and train regularly but are stressed out all the time, it’s incomplete. If you think you have the nutrition, exercise and mind/body thing covered, but your regimen includes things that promote harm or exploitation to animals or our planet…then it’s incomplete.
And yes – while I don’t believe in mudslinging, blatant self-righteousness, embarrassing others or grandstanding – this will be the place where I will “go after” any of a number of the ridiculous untruths and misperceptions out there that are CONSTANTLY perpetuated in the media. Why? Because I am a man on a motherfuckin’ mission, people! There is so much unnecessary suffering in the world, and so much of it can be avoided with just a little information. And “Rock-Solid” information is what I promise to deliver to you here…albeit in a slightly more conversational style than usual.
So on that note, I’ll bring blog #1 to a close. See you in a day or two…
