An interesting look into the ego of climbing. How a lot of chapters apply to me and a lot of others directly? Not sure, how a lot of chapters are in the book! This is a must read for any climber that not only wants to check their ego, but also loves nuggets of wisdom that create you really think. A+ could not recommend more!
This book applies to more than just climbing. Latest week, during a company meeting amidst the COVID-19 lock down, I shared a quote from this book: “What mattered is what I am, and that I was standing exactly where I wanted to be”. Nobody in my company climbs, but in that moment, one sentence from “The Hard Truth” had 75 people talking about those words and how they resonated. Kris cuts to the point of a lot of subjects and does so without pontification, just the hard truth, and I think now more than ever, we could all use that.
Kris does an amazing job of laying out the foundations for where we need to work as climbers. He pinpoints a ton of various locations outside of the physical strength portion of climbing. A amazing read even for people who don't climb but know some of the lingo.
This book is comprised of a collection of essays each paired with a special and fun illustration. The essays pertain to the process of rock climbing, but a lot of of the nuggets of wisdom imparted in them can be applied to any goal or task, which we take seriously. Each essay has a easy lesson and the frank, to the point writing makes them simple to digest. More often than not, I found the essays relatable and simple to relate and reflect on.Anyone interesting in some self reflection should pick this up, grab a pad of paper and take some notes on the "hard truths," Kris Hampton puts out there.
Bought this on pre-order and have read it cover-to-cover twice in the few weeks I’ve had it — mostly between burns on the woody as you can see from the chalked up cover. It’s so amazing that I promptly purchased another copy to send to my basic climbing/training partner. Chock full of knowledge and truths that will benefit climbers of any level as well as anyone who is trying to obtain better at doing hard things. Read it, highlight it, read it again. You will not be disappointed!
This book tells the hard truth about why you aren't betting better at climbing. It doesn't do it by telling you a training program or some simple steps to getting stronger and attacks your motivation and effort and encourages you to ramp them up.
A amazing collection of essays dealing with cutting out your ego, increasing your motivation, and trying hard. This book doesn't tell you how a lot of days a week to train or how much weight to use on the hangboard, but provides some no nonsense insight on the largest thing holding climbers back: themselves.
I'm subscribed to the newsletter and they were teasing other articlesthat you could read through their mobile app. Once I downloaded the mobile application they actually needed users to subscribe to read the articles. So while the application looked amazing and I live the content I'm putting 1 star for misleading users. Its harsh i know..
Scam. Typical 'FREE' trial but only with your credit card. If it's free trial why do you need my credit card number? When 7 days is over switch off access if I like service I will pay and subscribe. Don't be sneaky basterds and mislead people with 'free'.
Idk about the service, but sign in only with apple? It's like saying "only this group of people gets respect". Well at least that's how I view sign in options. I will delete the review later if reminded, since it's not super useful. Originally had 3 stars, but don't wish to damage the product unfairly.
I signed up to finimize few years back and loved it the email briefs were awesome. I was very excited for the begin of the initial iPhone application and subsequently the Android device ver but now whenever I test to read the brief in application it asks me to subscribe. All the other options always ask me to subscribe the only 'unlocked packs' are the basics of investing and creating a portfolio. The app may as well be subscriber only since all the content is locked. The application works well just misleading.
The basic thing the application seems to be about is "Packs". The packs are like little segmented guides, everything from a beginners tutorial to investing to currency trading and more. Access to them is paywalled behind a subscription with no limited access to them before entering payment. The Packs seem to be just articles that are already linked in their newletter. There is a news section but thier newsletter already does that well. This application doesn't really seem to offer anything fresh in comparison.
Before I could read the newsletter and click relevant links. Now I am forced into the application and can't do anything before hitting the paywall. I liked the content although the one-pun-per-sentence was rather annoying. Guess I'll have to obtain my finance modernize from elsewhere.
it's an awesome app! Not only can I listen to everyday imp news instead of reading, there are also other articles about certain subjects like how how to research investment options or how wealth manager works, trends and a lot more. However, I would love to see the platform to be more accessible. Like, if I could save some articles I loved or see all kinds of articles to learn about a topics, also in some of the articles I couldn't see the listen options but I could see the time. Nonetheless Love it
I'm giving it a 2-star only because I've been a subscriber for their email services for over two years now which is amazing - highly recommended! As to the app: -wherever you click it leads to the subscribe here section -although the subscription is worth $59.99 (100 BGN in local currency), in the application it costs 134.99 BGN -only an annual subscription -I can't search the "Unlocked packs" section with the free to read articles and if I click once without reading it, then I can't access it again
Love this app. Easy, fun read on the tube. Fresh items out all the time. Tells me everything I need to know about what's going on in the markets, plus loads of deeper items about FB, Amazon etc etc. Podcast versions is cool feature too. Hold it up.
Flat out method too primary in all that it tries to do Overall the idea behind the company is good. But it's delivery, lack of substantial or true applicability, and depth of subjects is so severely lacking that I cannot even give this a 1 star. The scope of subjects are okay, but again limited in applicability as everything seems more rooted in stock picking mentality, story weaving, and economics about see the trees and not the forest. Which to be fair is understandable when you're target shop is the masses or people with an inability to think for themselves in any meaningful way. The entire platform is built for mobile based browsing through an application only. This is utterly ridiculous and would force me to give a 0 star right away for this fact if I could. Unfortunately I am forced to give one star. This is absurd for those of us who use the phone as a tool it is meant for instead of revolving our lives around it. All links force you to their www service in a browser, then create you begin the application and find for exactly what could have been linked and opened to in the app. Again, poorly thought out if you're entire business model is predicated on mobile application specific based browsing. Then there is the complete lack of applicability to the true world. The entire focus is on ideas and stories. What you should focus on are true globe tangible and applicable solutions and tactics that can be implemented easily. Stories and trends are amazing to read for fun, but have small value in financial markets outside of such story based (aka hyped err read over-valued) equities. Again, small applicability for the masses = waste of time and money.
Finimize is a unbelievable method to learn about finance and the implications of globe news. Concepts are taught without the complex jargon and news is simplified into laymans terms. I love this application and the content on it. Highly recommended!
Our generation lacks accurate financial education sources and I think Finimize application has a amazing potential of closing this gap. Overall, I think it has valuable content that is of amazing support to someone who wants to sharpen his investing skills. Really appreciate the method content is written - accessible for people who are not in the finance field.
I’ve been using this application for the latest couple of months, and it has really created a difference to my confidence in getting investing! I started off reading and listening to the content on my commute, then joined a group where financial experts helped me obtain my knowledge to a point where I felt comfortable putting away some cash each month. It’s actually given me a true interest in the markets, and I am starting to understand how things that happen in the globe affect my money.
Been a finimize subscriber for years. Downloaded the application so i can access my everyday briefing in one place, but can't access everyday briefings and instead constant attempts to obtain me to sign up to paid membership. I'm guessing no content in the application is free. If it is, then its not straight forward because i can't access it.
A easy yet very enlightening book. This is a amazing reading material to begin enhancing your mental prowess. The info is sufficient to help the title of the book on how to increase intelligence: from the proper diet: eating brain- healthful meal such as nuts and fish; exposing self to Vitamin D and loading the body with Vitamin E etc. Definitely, worth every cents.
You wish an smart lifestyle don't you? I know that an smart skill set is something we all should strive for shouldn't we? If this is what we wish why wait let's obtain our copy now. You're intelligent aren't you? Invest in your self for a change why don't you?
My favorite is the brain meal part. I've learned from here the foods that can support my brain cells and tissues be healthier and more active. So I will for sure incorporate these in my diet. Most of them are yummy so I'm excited to try. For me this book has given a amazing deal of info to support us enhance our brain cells, thus making or keeping us smart and smart. I enjoyed reading it.
