Life is all about lessons – not mistakes – but lessons we can learn from to improve ourselves. For Kristian, 2014 was a big year for lessons. Today we lift the lid on what has really been happening with Kristian over the last 12 months or so and really get into the gritty about what lessons he learned and how you can avoid similar experiences. Stress management is about learning to identify stressors in your life that you can control, and focusing on those to avoid the overwhelm of stressors that are simply beyond your control. It is about being adaptive and responsive,  not reactive and we discuss some super important lessons on stress in this episode.

But before we do……Some exciting news! Our 100th episode is fast approaching, and we want to celebrate. But we want you guys – our awesome listeners – to be a part of it. So we are holding a design competition: design a “Fat Black Podcast” riding kit (bibs and jersey) with whatever clever, creative, purely awesome design you can think of, and the winner will receive that kit! We are launching the kit-production as a bit of ‘kickstarter-ish’ campaign, so we need a minimum if 20 kits confirmed before we can produce. If we don’t hit our number, then no one get’s charged.

Got to

More on those awesome details very shortly.
