Podcast #749: Let the Children Play!

In Finland, children don’t start formal schooling until age seven, aren’t subject to standardized testing, and always get at least one hour of physical activity a day, broken into 15-minute free-play breaks every hour, which take place outside no matter the weather. Finnish parents and teachers espouse mantras like, “Let children be children,” “The children must play,” and “The work of a child is to play.” Yet despite this emphasis on play, Finnish students still achieve enviable academic out...

Peter Drucker’s Question for Eliminating Practices That No Longer Serve You

We’ve talked before about the power of using the principle of via negativa to improve your life. Instead of focusing on what you should start doing to make your life better, it often pays to think about what you can stop doing. It’s addition by subtraction. Some of the things you should eliminate from your life are easy to figure out: debt, toxic people, wasting time on the internet, porn, junk food, smoking, etc. These things have far more downside than upside, and if you were to remove them f...

2 Ideas on How To Deal With Road Rage

If you’ve been on the road before then you’ll know that road rage is a real thing. Perhaps you’ve personally never experienced it, but maybe you’ve been the unfortunate victim of someone’s verbal abuse because they’ve had a dreadful day at work. Frustration is normal and we’re all prone to lashing out at others for distinct reasons, but anger is particularly dangerous when you’re behind the wheel of a vehicle. Road rage is something that we can certainly avoid, both on the receiving or giving en...

Sunday Firesides: Good Times Are Not Around the Corner (And That’s Great News!)

“As soon as this work project gets done.” “As soon as we get more settled in.” “As soon as I’m done planning this event.” “As soon as the kids are older.” How commonly do we offer these postponements to personal urges and others-issued invitations to take a trip, make a move, or simply hang out? “Things are busy right now,” we tell ourselves. “But in a week/month/year, my calendar will be much freer. Good times are right around the corner!” There is a bit of truth to this. Different seasons in ...

Why and How to Front Squat

We’re big proponents of squatting here at AoM — particularly the low-bar squat. The mechanics of the low-bar squat allow you to work more muscles in your posterior chain, i.e., the “chain” of muscles that run up the back of the body. More muscle utilization = more weight moved. But there are other ways to squat that can provide similar benefits to the low-bar squat. For example, many people do the high-bar squat, which is similar to the low-bar squat, except the bar is held higher on the back. ...

How to Look Behind You (Without Looking Behind You)

Editor’s note: The text and illustrations of this piece were adapted from Krav Maga: Fundamental Strategies by David Kahn. When facing street violence, you can usually identify verbal, behavioral, and physical manifestations indicating that violence is imminent. Recognize it or not — and it is decidedly important that you do — it is highly likely there will be some indicator prior to an attack. This all-important situational awareness capability allows you to avoid a “-5” situation — where...

When Pastors Declare Victory Too Soon

I came across an article I submitted to Leadership Journal twenty years ago. Leadership Journal, now defunct, was legendary back then, and not just for the comics (the first thing I’d read). Unlike other periodicals, I kept them. I had a row of them in my library. I submitted an article called “The Youngest Member.” It was about me, a young pastor then, leading an older church. They turned me down. I opened the document again recently out of curiosity, and was pleasantly surprised. It’s...
