Hello it’s Craig.
Welcome to the Movers Mindset podcast.
As 2019 draws to a close, this episode wraps up our third season. I want to take a few minutes to say thank you, to recap what we’ve accomplished, and to give you a glimpse at what’s coming for 2020.
First, I want to express my deep gratitude to seven people—in alphabetically order because otherwise how could I possibly figure out who to thank first—to
…thank you. This would be impossible without you.
Hello, it’s Craig. Welcome to the Movers Mindset podcast. Today it’s just me. We’ll be back on Wednesday with another interview.
I want to share an idea with you that I have found helpful in thinking about my interactions with other people and with communities. The idea is that each interaction is a trade. Framing my interaction as trades with other individuals, has helped me monitor my behavior so that I behave fairly and justly, in a way that I don’t exploit others or allow them to exploit me. I find that understanding the trade helps me to appreciate others and ultimately be happier because I am more aware of the range of values that other people provide. A lot of trade involves the exchange of money for a good or a service, but this can confuse the issue. To understand the real value involved, it helps to think about the other values that go into the trade.
Craig: In each of our podcasts, we ask guests to pick three words to define their practice. Choosing the three words to describe your practice has turned out to be a much more interesting and intriguing part of the conversation than we had initially anticipated.
The word practice, for example, goes beyond movement and often evokes broader images and ideas that reflect an approach to life. The idea that parkour and movement techniques in general are more than just physical has always been behind Movers Mindset. This is why we focus on ideas and reflection, for example, rather than on flashy videos of daring movement. The deeper dive into the mindset of movers is where the real magic happens.
