"When I watch men from other schools and listen to them talking about their theories, I can tell they haven’t the slightest idea of what my strategy is about. They prefer to act out their techniques and think they accomplish things without proper practice. These men are fools. They try to impress their non-understanding upon the uninitiated. More and more men are practicing this way and that is why the true Way is becoming meaningless and will eventually be lost to all men except through my teachings"
Miyamoto Musashi - Coach
Coach was born In Kingston Jamaica and moved to the U.S. as a youth. As an artist from birth, He spent most of his free time studying and drawing the human body, He also discovered a passion for running as well as football.
During his college years, yearly rehabilitation to heal his many injuries became a staple. He ultimately grew impatient when he was not fully healed by the therapists. To him, this was unacceptable. He decided to address the issue himself, so he began looking at the human body in the way an artist recognizes proportions, esthetics and balance. He gradually came to realize that the methods used in his rehabilitation and strength training were flawed in their implementation and that there were factors not addressed at all. With this initial revelation, the first step to "The WAY Method" was born.
One of the reasons his method is successful, is he views each person as a unique piece of art, He recognizes as he does in his drawings, that the differences that make us uniquely us is what at times causes our problems and that the cause of the problem may not be where the symptom is located. With the realization that nothing is perfect, he continues to redefine his method daily.
b : a courteous and respectful act or expression
Our society seems to have lost this word. I now have business people calling me and asking for me by my first name as if we are friends. We are NOT friends! (not yet, that is recognized through time).
The degradation of any thing begins with the loss of small things that may seem insignificant but builds a psychological crack in how we relate to one another. This crack grows wider and spreads into other facets of our behavior.
No matter their status, all people should be referred to with courtesy, it is then their choice whether to provide a more familiar term. THIS GOES ESPECIALLY FOR BUSINESS!
