    Ep23. A conversation with Jordan

    “if you want to do something big, you’ve got to be ok with failing” - “I can work hard, how hard can it be?” –“it was the most fun I’d never want to do again” -  “I wanted to row across an ocean because I thought it was a cool idea, and I couldn’t take it out of my head” - “I’m a very enthusiastic, passionate person, but in terms of getting a project done, I can get to be very practical. Like If we want to do this, what’s the very next thing that we need to do, and then build that into a bigger timeline” – “To what end?” – “Being a very passionate person can be a double edge sword, because I really want to do the things I want to do, and I’m willing to work really hard to make that happen, and do a lot of things that I would otherwise find unpleasant,…. But if I’m not inspired by the idea, I will not do it! And that is not a good thing…” – “There’s people that can do something to support their passion, or they have to make their passion pay” – “You can’t escape the human experience without something tragic happening to you, that’s part of the human experience. Some people are lucky that they have very little bits of that, and other people seem to be just plagued by it” – “A lot of people like the idea of something, versus the actual thing, so when you are thinking of a project that you wanna do, being self-critical is an important part of that. You have to like the thing, and make sure it’s not ego driven. If you’re going to do something big, do it because you also like it! Because you are passionate about the thing, and not just the idea of accomplishing it” – Jordan’s song is “Aaron Copeland”

I’m bad on land” – “Paddle sports to me is as much about community and personal health and growth as it is about specific goals” - “What could go wrong? It’s about getting comfortable with the situation, with risk” – “The best teachers will support your needs, whatever those are, and just give you what you need. You just look at a student and you figure out what do they need!” – “When having an objective: Can I do that? What are the positives and the negatives? If those objectives are going to have a negative impact on those around me. Do I back off from that? Do I try to mitigate those disadvantages? Can I mitigate those? Am I going to have to set a different goal? – Aaron Coppeland – Fanfare the common man - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKgk6G0lekQ - www.RiversForChange.org

    “I am a mighty, fearless warrior, loving and supporting myself, truly accepting who I am now” – “People put limits on themselves without even trying beforehand.

You might be surprised about what you learn about yourself along the way” – “just showing up is a huge part of it, so just take that first step, that first push, and go and try it”  - @gowitherica – Erica Davis

    Ep20. A conversation with DB

    “Life is about moving forward without really knowing the destination. Life is about discovering the path as we go. Not wandering blindly, but in truth, none of us really knows where it will end up” – “We learn so well when we are slightly uncomfortable, when we’re being pushed by a good coach, or mentor, or when in situation that have the potential for failure. And failure is so much more effective in teaching than success. It’s tough to nail down where we succeeded, but it’s usually very obvious to see where we fail” – “The truth of adventure is rain, heat, uncertainty, danger, but that is exactly what life really is. The problem with insulating against natural consequences is that we don’t learn limits, and we don’t learn how far we actually could go. So possibilities are also blunted” – “If we all expect the identified leader to do everything for us, the trip doesn’t go very well. But we all start adding in our pieces, and taking responsibility, all of a sudden the worse trip is still really good” – “Adventure based parenting revitalizes relationships, it motivates active lifestyles, and it fosters long term family connections” – DB’s song is “Ain’t no grave” by Crooked Still  https://youtu.be/py_mHp1g0Bo - Follow backcountry professor on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXnQgA1nNV4WePe7LeoFhlw

    “You are exactly where you need to be” -  “If you don’t do it now, when??” - “Do right, be right, and pay it forward” - “You’ll have more money, but when do you think you’ll find more time?” – “There are a lot of things that you can replace in this world, but people and time are not one of them” – “If you’re listening, that’s when your opportunities show up” – “The best way to know what’s going on with someone is ask them. Connect at that 1 to 1 level” – “This was the perfect storm for my ego and my mental state at the time” – “When someone wants to do something, a lot of times what gets in our way is the story of our past journey” – “That’d be so cool, but I can’t, because I’m a big fat lineman! That’s the story I was telling myself” – Hawaiian like me IZ https://youtu.be/MNLAvZTC7_A - Bob Marley - Three little birds https://youtu.be/zaGUr6wzyT8

    Ep18. A conversation with Oscar

    “I do get overboard at everything I do. I do everything flat out, or don’t do it“ – “You’ve got it, it’s up to you, to actually realize, that you can make yourself whatever you want to be” -  “You can’t let the pain overtake the brain.

I’m a perfectionist when it comes to getting the technic right, and doing everything right, and I hate seeing people doing it wrong” – “I always say when I’m teaching: Don’t believe me, work it out for yourself, and believe in me, once you work it out for yourself then you’ll know that I’m right” – “If I got to do something, I do it now” – “I’m going to train, I said I was going to train, I’m going.
