Less Is More When It Comes to Self Defense
Most of the clutter in my apartment comes in the form or papers, notes, books and magazines...
Notes from all of the ideas I have. Plans, outlines, blueprints, you name it. I write it all down, it's how I put order to things in my head.
It's how I remember... Or should I say, that it's how I don't forget.
When I let things go for a time w/o tiding up, the stacks start to accumulate into stacks of notes, papers and books.
When I clean I go through each stack and sort out what is still relevant and what isn't...
This is one of the reasons why it takes me so long to clean... It's because I scan each piece of paper to determine if it is useful or not!
I know it sounds a little like the rain man mix w/a hoarder, but the extra effort is worth it.
I discard what I no longer need and keep what is still relevant and useful... Or at least that's what I try to do.
Truth be told, I know there are still a lot of things I could throw out that I can't quite bring myself to do (my inner pack rat).
As a matter of fact, I was looking at my bookshelf and realized that I'm at the point where I'm ready to let a BUNCH more of them go. Maybe I'll do that later this afternoon?!
I know it may sound a little cray cray, but...
It is what it is!
Regardless, it is amazing how much better I feel now that my apartment is clean! It really does have a profound affect on my mental state.
You can do the same thing with you training!
Yep, that's right, so many people I know out there know a lot of techniques. They've accumulated them over the years. Some, even take pride in knowing so many. They pick them up from all of the different styles they took, the seminars they've attended, from watching videos and youtube...
Just like my books...
We grow attached to them.
But here's the rub...
Knowing more techniques isn't where it's 'at' when it comes to being proficient at this stuff.
It's really not who 'knows' the most techniques. Yes, techniques are important, but it's more than that.
Without having the right framework, the techniques are really just a lot of clutter!
Clutter that just gets in the way!
It's better to have...
One Simple Defense
I know, that sounds a bit kitsch, but I do mean it. (....and don't try getting the URL, I already own it! =).
It doesn't mean that there's One Technique that is the Magic Bullet, it means that you need One Simple Blueprint. A framework that is simple. One that makes sense and actually works when you need it to.
Cohesive, adaptable, effective.
Basically, you need One Simple Defense that has Many Applications.
You know as well as I that conflict comes in all shapes and sizes. From the big hairy ugly, to the minor annoyance. The physical cage match to office politics and mind games.
You have to know how to deal with it all if you're going to survive and thrive in this world today...
Or you can keep being everyone's doormat and the 'Easy Target.'
You have to Clear the Clutter of your training, your mind and your Life!
Less IS More!
What don't you need anymore?
What is unnecessary?
What isn't working for you any more, or things you simply don't use.
Kick those things to the curb!
Reduce things down to their quintessence (there's a word for ya!).
