If you were Geir’s coach, what would you recommend?

I am continually honored to have so many intelligent readers commenting on my blog. I would like to take the opportunity to self-correct based on hopefully valuable recommendations from you.

  1. Kudos for your comments and considerations too, Geir! 🙂

    To be perfectly honest, I can only see you doing a sterling job here, without any criticisms of your operation whatsoever.

    Perhaps, (if anything) you might just indicate to “comments” of a “nuisance/invalidatory/ad hom” content, that they are NOT welcome here. Persistence of such, mercifully given the ol’ ‘heave-ho’ send-off, & with a smile! 🙂

    Yep, NO host is obliged to become a “door mat” for those who are disrespectful of required manners and consideration of all involved, in otherwise healthy, highly stimulating discussions. ( — The hallmark of Geir’s Place, — I must add! ) 😀

  2. If I were Geir’s coach, I would recommend he do an admin scale so as to work out the policy that would align with current plans, projects, etc, and, of course, with his ultimate goals and purposes.

        1. I would be very glad to see and apply that version of admin scale. Is it possible to find out that version of admin scale on this blog, please? Thank you very much.

        2. I would be very glad to see and apply that version of admin scale. Is it possible to find out that version of admin scale on this blog, please? Thank you very much…

  3. Geir, I would very definitely recommend you a more extensive use of the multimedia tools on your excellent blog. To be more specific, I would love to see more HD videos of Geir talking in english or spanish or at least sub-titles available. More Geir pictures doing his stuff at different places. More ” mass “of his coaching tips, etc. 😉 .

    1. Videos always add the ‘spice’, Rafa, — Emotions, facial expressions, vibes, body language, etc, etc.

      Hell man! — I think there’s a whole cascade of observable perceptions that can add to enhancing moods when we deliver comm to one another 🙂

      Good plug there, Rafa! 😀

  4. My most valuable practice is my memory mindscape. My business focuses on brain-body fitness, and I typically teach my clients the lost art of the memory palace by drilling the bejesus out of them on how to use it.

    Usually, when I quote stuff here, It is from that place: images placed in a room in my imaginary world translating back into quotes.

    Over the years, I have built an island in my imagination that is a world unique to me. But this castle in the sky is FUNCTIONAL. I learn a subject and assign it an exact location in my mind scape. Then as I walk through it, I review what I learn over time. Stoicism has a place and it’s key ideas are always there for me.

    IF I maintain it. That’s the rub. Memory palace maintenance takes time, but what most people don’t understand is that the maintenance is the BEST part.

    It’s a visual, 3D meditation of my own creation and fucking rocks.

    And for me to attempt to explain it here will not do the subject justice. But if you want to learn how, get the book “Moonwalking With Einstein” on audiobook. I am doing classes again and I will do YouTube shorts on this amazing meditation practice.

    Imagine KNOWLEDGE as your meditation. Pretty cool.

    1. This stuff gives a great big kick to ‘living’, Kat — That’s ‘play’, at it’s BEST! 🙂

  5. I wouldn’t pretend to know what is in your heart-of-hearts, but if you do (and I think you easily do by this point in your research and life) then just do that.

    The OP is very anti-fragile and reminds me of your “love no matter the cost” because maybe it applies here. Maybe that’s good coaching advice for each of us. Maybe you’re ready for a new adventure. Maybe you’ve been adventuring and are ready to rededicate your energy to home.

    I wouldn’t pretend to know what is in your heart-of-hearts, but you might.

    1. Yeah! Also, the man doesn’t need polish, since he simply ‘shines’ all by hisself 🙂
      ps. This happens to be my ‘plug’ day. Anyone else noticeably “gleaming”? 😀

          1. Yes! Of course I love to ride fast and love to feel the mental balance of a machine just at the edge of control.

            But having said that, I also acknowledge the feeling to be a significance assigned in our brains. Each of us can have that feeling regardless of the activity. For example, took my Shelley to eat lunch at a small Mexican grill. It wasn’t clean and the air conditioning was off. The air was smelly and humid. The table was barely wiped with a dirty rag and our food was so-so. I was sitting there eating my burrito and thinking that Anthony Bourdain might walk thru the door at any moment and do a TV show on “the sidewalk food of Phoenix.” With that thought and positioning our current activity against that possible activity “created” adventure. I made my own brain light up with that thought and I would not have been more stimulated if I had been on the set of “Casablanca” with “Rick.”

        1. Well, brother….. It’s akin to practicing with your favorite instrument in an orchestra. When it’s all played in syn… it’s just like being “one” with beautiful music! 😀

          1. Well, brothers Calvin, Chris and Geir, according to the non-dualists (at least some of them), all of these adrenaline highs you seek are simply the attempt to find unconditional love – otherwise known as enlightenment or liberation. If you’re lucky, you can perhaps have a brief glimpse of it at times, but that is never quite satisfying and your longing is only temporarily quelled – somewhat. I include Geir in on this because he apparently has an adrenaline addiction too, which he calls “excitement.” 🙂

            1. Oops, I should have included “Oneness” as the other term that’s used in addition to unconditional love, enlightenment and liberation.

            2. You/me/he/she/it/they (WE) may call it anything the heart “desires”, meheart, (methinks). 😀

              Along the way, it sometimes strikes home, for us…. that one is actually involved in an ‘experience’, which epitomizes be/do/have, or desire/enforce/inhibit, unconditional love/gratitude, etc, etc.(words are poor substitutes for REALITY here!) 😉

              On the contrary, meheart, IF we did /could experience that “high”, methinks one would not only find this ENORMOUSLY satisfying, but due to the often brief period of such, then conclude: “to heck with the longing”…. and actively seek out MORE!

              The entirety of ‘life’, when viewed as an exciting ‘game’ leaves ‘boredom’ to the ‘boring’ (yawn). …. And I don’t limit ‘exciting’, to being just physically so, since one could still experience ‘excitement’ as a paraplegic in a wheelchair, (in the mental/emotional sense) ……. that is….. IF one still has the willingness/capability to feel this ‘high’.

              To repeat Geir’s conclusion; — “The purpose of life, is to enjoy the ride!” 🙂

              —- Summary? …… LIVE what you LOVE, Baby!! 😀

            3. “On the contrary, meheart, IF we did /could experience that ‘high’, methinks one would not only find this ENORMOUSLY satisfying, but due to the often brief period of such, then conclude: “to heck with the longing”…. and actively seek out MORE!

              Calvin, me heart, I am being the devil’s advocate for the non-dualists. Their claim is that the “highs” are never fully satisfying and that the longing is not really abated, except maybe temporarily. Only full liberation sets one free to the everlasting joy of unconditional love – even in daily life. Sounds pretty good, no? 😉

  6. What makes a memory mindscape useful is that it indexes information in a permanent way if one maintains the practice.

    So let’s say I want to learn a poem.

    That poem will have a PERMANENT location in my mind scape. Every time I walk through that place in my imagination, I see the images I encoded the poem into.

    It’s NOT easy. It’s a fucking lot of work actually and requires time every day. Images fade. Some parts get lumpy. Sometimes I have to wait a few minutes before the image returns and that is frustrating. It takes a lot of work to become proficient and youth REALLY helps.

    But one CAN spend a lot of time there. There is a lot to see.

    1. This is truly unbounded imagination taken to a whole new level! No wonder you have managed to include it as career.!! Just continue, bro’ — LIVE what you LOVE!. >3 — That’s a frigg’n privilege, ya know?. (y)

  7. Hi Geir, Just to say I very much appreciate the wide scope of interests, you have covered lately.

    Speaking of which, I would like to suggest a specific topic which may also generate some sparks and life into the ‘lounge’

    — The topic? — “Un-doing Mind Control.”

    🙂

  8. Hi Geir,

    If I were your coach, I would advice you to write an article by which you will advice people how could they construct their own simple personal coaching system by which they could coach themselves and/or others. I would advice you to write that article in order to initiate the discussion of how to create the content and form of that coaching system. I would advice you to sparkle by your article the discussion which will lead into the full understanding and application of that coaching system. I would advice you to write that article in order to find a way how to create such a system as effective, simple, helpful and applicable as posible.

Have your say
