S3-19: Reis Paluso: Comfort Kills!

“I can now generate heat and then move it throughout my body.” ~Reis Paluso

Brian Tracy has famously said, “Comfort is the great enemy of success.” So, the question is, “HOW COMFORTABLE ARE YOU?”

Reis Paluso is an amazing young man. Martin knows this well as Reis was one of his first “campers” way, way back in 1994-5 at Kreative Kids Computer Camp (Poway/San Diego).

Martin recounts Reis’ amazing computer skills as a young lad and reflects on the joy and challenge of his first “real” entrepreneurial venture with his amazing partners (partners MG still has to this day).

Reis shares in the Kreative Kids memory; learning HTML, multi-media skills (in the early days of the internet) and of course how he became a 46 wpm typist, at age 12!

However, the MEAT of the this episode is all about Reis’ and his recent voyage into the icy mountains of POLAND (bordering on Czech Republic). He ventured there in a quest to learn and experience the Wim Hof Method at an advanced level retreat. And, Reis confirms, this experience really elevated (so to speak) his Wim Hof practice to a whole, new level. (See links below for more about Hof himself).

After many days in an entirely foreign environment, RP shares how he had an emotional “release” really a massive personal breakthrough that he’d never anticipated and it was a direct result of this endeavor which culminates with him hiking up  Mount Snezka (in -15C or, 5ºF) shirtless, with just shoes and shorts on!!

Check out this fun and powerful episode!

Talk about getting out of your comfort zone!!!

S02-Mind Bullet Monday 20: Choose Growth!

“In times of change the learners inherit the earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” Eric Hoffer

It seems we all know a few people who decided that learning should cease when with their schooling. Unfortunately, these people tend to be same ones who are unhappy and discontent with themselves and their lives.

It’s important to ask ourselves, “Is growth and learning a habit that I’ve incorporated into my life?”

That is, do you routinely set aside time to learn new subjects and skills; to broaden your mind, to read and explore new and different environments daily.

Better yet, do you track your learning process— the development of any new skill or habit. If not, you ought to consider it since greats like Benjamin Franklin did this regularly (see Be Like Ben episode)

So, whether it’s tracking your attempt to become better in your vocation, learning a new skill or reading spiritual texts, the key idea is making your continued growth intentional and a habit.

Reminder: Using The Habit Factor’s P.A.R.R. methodology, it’s simple to Plan, Act, Record and Reassess your effort. Or, you can use the free tracking template or app.

This helps to ensure your growth is also focused upon the core, four areas; mind, body, spirit and social.

Sidenote: Martin references a Youtube video he saw recently (Rabbi video) where a Rabbi shares that the impetus (as he learns it) for the lobster to grow is discomfort. The lobster then discards its old shell and this is what allows the lobster to grow.
