Imperfect with imperfect knowledge

March 2, 2016

Today someone asked me about an issue and if I thought it should be addressed. I responded:

I don’t think so, but I am often wrong.

I think that is a good way to respond, admitting that I am imperfect with imperfect knowledge. I’ll respond this way more often.

3 things that I will never recommend

February 29, 2016
  1. I will never recommend a particular diet (paleo, macrobiotic, raw foods, fruitarian, juicing, etc.)
  2. I will never recommend a particular exercise program (weightlifting, running, yoga, etc.)
  3. I will never recommend a particular book.

Why?

Because my views on these things are fluid, constantly changing. Today I am convinced that one diet/exercise program/book is “the ultimate truth” and the next day I realize it’s not. I have no idea what truth is. But I have a pretty good idea what kindness is, so instead of giving my version of truth to people, I will give them my kindness.
