We have all moved much farther down the functional path in the past eight years. Access to knowledge in training has exploded, yet in many ways we have not progressed. Injuries are higher that they have ever been perhaps because we have not learned the lesson of functional path well enough or applied those lessons. I guess only time will tell. I am looking forward to continuing to write this blog and share my ideas with anyone interested. I will close with a brief reaffirmation of my beliefs: I have no tolerance for phonies, gurus, complexifiers, commercializers and shameless self-promoters. I pride myself on charting my own path even though it may not always be comfortable or inline with conventional wisdom. I am old fashioned with respect to duty, to integrity, to honesty and the value of a work ethic. I certainly have made mistakes, both errors of judgment, errors of commission and errors of omission – hopefully I have learned from those mistakes and become a better person because of it. I have few heroes but am very thankful for my family and my mentors who are a constant guiding light for me.
I wish you safe travel on your journey down the functional path.
