Train Naked

A reminder what this blog is about. Repetition in the mother of learning. Repetition is the mother of learning.

The ancient Greeks trained in the nude in the gymnasium and also competed in the buff in the Olympics. They literally had skin in the game. The word gymnasium actually means to train naked. Gymnasia in ancient Greece were not only for physical exercise but also had spaces for learning, mental training. A room in the gymnasium was dedicated to philosophy and discussion.

To train naked is to show up just as you are, with no pretence and no masks. We train to become better human beings, to craft meaningful lives, to do work that matters, and to thrive in chaos. The daily reflections, meditations, and practices in this blog are a call to train naked, to have skin in the game, together.

Get skin in the game, train.
