I love to watch learning taking place.
I don’t know if that exactly communicates it, but I don’t really know how else to say it.
I love to watch you guys try something a few times, then get a few cues, then sort of think about it for a second, try it, and the look on your face when you nail it is priceless.
I see Eliot doing it whenever we are camping and I am setting up or building a fire, or I’m fixing something and he is watching intently.
I see Django do it as he watches me open a box or move something from room to room, or open a door.
For some reason over the last few weeks it has really been on my mind how much we learn from what we observe. It is way more than by what we hear.
But for some reason I always think a step further.
If we learn more and have learned more from observing others, than from listening to them, this means people learn way more from me from what I do than from what I say. This means that while we THINK talking is our primary form of communication, the reality is our actions speak much more loudly.
To that end I want to really take a minute and congratulate every one of you that live this way of life with us. You may not be seeing the pay off yet, but the message you are communicating to your families, to your children and to your peers about the importance CrossFit and good Nutrition, will not soon be forgotten and are way more effective than anything you could ever say. Keep being the change you want to see!!!

**cool scale Idea: grab some bands and connect some rings to them.
Step in the band and bring the rings to your shoulder like a shoulder press.
Press the rings up, while standing on the bands that are connected so it is like a banded, ring, shoulder press!!
