Movement is the act of moving, the most general description of using our bodies. Walking is movement, playing piano is movement, dance is movement, bench pressing is movement. Fitness is only a tiny part of movement. Fitness is not bad, it’s just limited. Movement is a generalist approach. It is the, be above average in most things and exceptional in a few approach. Culture is the ideas, customs and social behaviour of a group of people.

What is sharpening the Sword?
According to Covey it is “preserving/ enhancing your greatest asset, you” It is having things that you do to recharge yourself in the 4 main areas of life. Physical, Social/Emotional, Mental, Spiritual. Sharpening, keeps you fresh. It increases your capacity to handle the challenges you face. Feeling good is a product of what you do. So do things that make you feel good? Use some sense though, just because something makes you feel good now, it doesn’t mean it will in the long run. Eating cake makes you feel good, but not in the long run.
Previously we spoke about how what you consume affects you. Getting deeper into that, we are looking at what you do every day. What you do daily is the most important thing to achieving your goals. It’s not the one big training session that makes you strong, it is the accumulated training sessions over years that make you strong. How do you get strong? To quote Matt Vincent “you squat heavy once a week for ten years”
