A little holiday spirit. This house in River Forest decks it out every year.

“The fatal tendency to be satisfied with words instead of trying to understand things…

…to learn phrases by heart, so that they may prove a refuge in time of need – exists, as a rule, even in children; and the tendency lasts on into manhood, making the knowledge of many learned persons to consist in mere verbiage.”
– Arthur Schopenhauer, Education

“…people today are so accustomed to pretentious nonsense that they see nothing amiss in reading without understanding, and many of them at length discover that they can without difficulty write in like manner themselves and win applause for it. And so it perpetuates itself.”
– G. A. Wells, 1991

    Don’t let the snow or the numbers psych you out for today’s fun, folks. I had a bad attitude going into it, and around the third round realized, "Hey, I’m going to finish this". You will too. Enjoy!

    I have to speak up once again about “pain” and “discomfort.” They are two completely different things.

    Pain as defined by Merriam-Webster: localized physical suffering associated with bodily disorder (as a disease or an injury)

    Discomfort as defined by Merriam-Webster: to make uncomfortable or uneasy

    When you perform a One World workout, you are ratcheting up your intensity. You are going to a place that is not fun. Sometimes, folks don’t even come in to train because they know how much the workout is going to suck. This is “discomfort.”

    "Pain" is different. Pain comes from injury. If you want to train and see positive results quickly, the possibility of injury is always a reality. It’s just like being a boxer. You can hit a heavy bag all you want, but when it comes time to spar and get to the business of fighting, you are going to get hit in head, knocked down, and beat up. It is going to suck, but it is how you become a better fighter. At One World, almost all injuries are strains of muscles and tendons. These injuries do not get better by “working through the pain.” THESE INJURIES TAKE SIX TO EIGHT WEEKS MINIMALLY TO HEAL!!! Any doctor will tell you this. I have experienced this many times over in my life. I’ve had nagging injuries that I tend to mask over with athletic tape or braces and continue to abuse. Minor injuries that should clear up in six weeks stretch out to several months. Six to eight weeks does not mean “going light” or “taping up” the injured body part. Six to eight weeks means laying off the injury and will, in most cases, get you pretty close to 100%.
