“‘There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. … No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.” –Martha Graham

These are books that I've read and recommendation on the topic of effective communication. If you have any others to recommend, I would appreciate it.
Communication and relationship building are crucial skills in life, and these are some books I've read on the topic.

How you think about jiu-jitsu affects the trajectory of your progress. This post focuses on a small change you can make that will help you set a clear path for mastery.
Just a little shift in focus can have all kinds of effects. It would be interesting to see what effects will come out of this little change.

Introduction
The most important thing that you should be know about me is that I love Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. It's that simple.

For that reason, I created BJJ Canvas. It's an expression of that passion with a focus on a simple idea.

I'll explain it real quick.

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is something that you can take and create your own expression of it. If you understand the concepts and you develop the movements, you can create a style that is uniquely your own.

I'm just loving the process.
