    By Leo Babauta In the past two weeks, I’ve written more than 45,000 words, including 10 posts for Zen Habits and Sea Change and 30 chapters in my new book. That’s a lot of writing. I don’t usually write that much — it’s an unusually high output for me, and I’m not usually that productive. The biggest motivator is that I’m going on a trip today for two weeks with Eva, and I needed to get my writing done before the trip. I call this kind of high-powered output before a vacation my Productive Sprint, and I do it probably 4-5 times a year for various trips…

  • The Biggest Reasons You Haven’t Changed Your Habits

    zenhabits
    26 Sep 2014 | 7:13 am
    By Leo Babauta Like a chump, I struggled for years trying to change my habits. I started an exercise program or diet with unrestrained optimism, probably a dozen times. I threw away all my cigarettes and tried quitting smoking about seven times. I tried waking up early, reading more, writing daily, getting out of debt, watching less TV, and failed at all of those. It feels horrible when you can’t stick to habits, and I constantly felt bad about myself. What I didn’t realize back then, until I started successfully changing my habits in late 2005, is that it wasn’t a matter of…
  • Seized by the Thunderhold of Fear

    zenhabits
    23 Sep 2014 | 8:48 am
    By Leo Babauta They’re all around us, affecting our lives in unseen ways, causing worry, hesitation, confusion, anxiety, avoidance. They bring us to our knees. Fears control us in ways we never realize, unacknowledged and more powerful because of their unknown workings. Fears stop us from following our dreams, from taking risks, from pursuing love, from seeking adventure, from speaking in public, from going into the unknown, from starting a new venture, from reveling in discomfort. We procrastinate, overeat, find distractions, because of fear. We are seized with constant worry, from…
  • What to Eat for Fat Loss

    zenhabits
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:53 am
    By Leo Babauta I’ve gone from obese to overweight to normal weight to pretty fit, in the last decade, and I’m sometimes asked what someone should eat if they want to lose fat. I’ve tried many diets: Atkins, Mediterranean, South Beach, Paleo, Vegan, and a handful of others. I’ve created my own meal plans, I’ve tracked calories, I’ve done intermittent fasting. And I’ve come to the conclusion that while calories do matter for fat loss, the easiest thing to do is to focus on a handful of high-quality foods, especially vegetables, and to avoid eating too…
  • The Heartbreaking Cruelty of Comparing Yourself to Others

    zenhabits
    17 Sep 2014 | 9:06 am
    By Leo Babauta We all do it: we look at what others are doing and wish we were doing that too. Or, alternatively, we scoff at what they’re doing and judge them, and see ourselves as better. One makes us feel bad, the other makes us feel superior. Neither makes us happy. Let’s take a couple of quick examples. Example 1: Looking at Instagram I’m not an Instagram user, but family members are, and I see the kinds of things that are posted: people going to parties, to the beach, having a great dinner, traveling, going on a run, doing yoga … generally living an amazing life.

  • More Pictures from PIU Chapels

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:46 pm
    At PIU we have chapels every Tuesday and Friday. Of course, we enjoy the opportunity to take an hour away from normal work and have time to fellowship and worship. I especially appreciate that we also get to hear from very good music from PIU students and staff. We get to hear everything from hymns, to island music, to rock ‘n roll and rap and usually done pretty well. Within the last week we had two very different, but both very good, music styles in chapels. And the speakers, Tom van Engen (left) from Faith Church and some other guy were okay too. We had a little rock and roll going last…

  • Weekend in Chuuk

    29 Sep 2014 | 2:11 pm
    I spent this past weekend in Chuuk. My purpose was to meet with church and education leaders there to get our teaching facilities and distance education programs up and running again. I enjoyed sitting with Yosta Lodge and Noah Ruben from Faithwalk Christian College and President of the Evangelical Church of Chuuk, Karsom Enlet. The bottom line is that our plans to bring classes back to Tol and Weno is moving forward. Dr. Sam Mabini will be in Chuuk next week (October 4-7) and will be offering the PIU entrance exam on the FCC campus and in Weno (probably at Chuuk High School). PIU…
  • Yap #2–Meeting with Alumni

    28 Sep 2014 | 9:48 pm
    I just got back from Chuuk this morning and will talk about that in a later post, but I wanted to make one more post about my time in Yap earlier this week. I had a chance to meet with several of our PIU alumni and was very encouraged to hear what they are doing in their jobs and ministries. I met with a group of the alumni on Tuesday night (pictured on the left) and had a good chance to update them on what has been happening at PIU. Several of them are interested in the Master of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies that began this semester. The difficulty for all of them is financing…
  • Yap #1–Views of Yap

    24 Sep 2014 | 3:11 pm
    I returned yesterday from a trip to Yap. The purpose of my trip was to speak with Yap church leaders about our teaching facility there. We have not had any students in the facility the last couple semesters and we needed to talk about what they wanted to do. I was encouraged at the meeting by the church leaders’ enthusiasm for PIU and its programs. (We have 4 students from Yap on campus right now). The key issue for the TF will be having a teacher who can do “face to face” classes on Yap. (We find this to be true in our experience for all of the islands of Micronesia – DE classes work…

    NO REST FOR THE AWAKE - MINAGAHET CHAMORRO

  • Chamorros at JATA

    29 Sep 2014 | 5:49 pm
    I have to write more about this at some point. It is interesting because for so many Chamorros, their self-perceptions are mired in feelings that we have nothing (especially in cultural terms) and that no one would every want anything that we have anyways. It is intriguing then to see how popular Chamorro style dance is at conventions like this, and to consider that there are multiple Chamorro dance groups in Japan and the United States.  *************** News Releases From the Guam Visitors Bureau Chamorro Culture Makes Impact at JATASeptember 28, 2014 (Tokyo, Japan) Team Guam…

  • Impossible Seas

    26 Sep 2014 | 11:30 am
    The way people conceive of Guam's economic health is mired in colonial feelings of inferiority and the contradictions that naturally emerge. As a small island in the middle of the ocean, Guam is naturally thought to have nothing according to the base epistemology of Europeans. Such a way of seeing the world and mapping its sense of value and naturalness is tied to the land. The land is safe, the land is secure, the land is what offers the chance to build, to horde, to make something. The ocean is the opposite. The ocean is the frightening infinite, the terrorizing endlessness, it holds the…

  • Parental Delusions

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:47 am
    There are good parents and there are bad parents, but there are no perfect parents.What I find intriguing from talking to public school teachers around the island, is the way in which they see many parents unable to deal with the reality of their children or their level of parenting. The students that are the most problematic are usually those where the family is hardly involved in their education. The parents are absent in the home life, discipline isn't taught and order and structure aren't laid down and so those kids become problem students in school.Kids misbehave, kids make mistakes,…
