Re: Perhaps the tide is changing.
Nice post Chris. Times and trends (fads) sure are changing. Do you think the phenomenon of "instant gratification" has anything to do with it? Maybe I'm just getting old, but it seems that both in martial arts and work circles, a lot of people seem to be reducing goal timeframes - no such thing as long term goals any more. "If results can't be achieved quickly, its not worth it" seems to be the general attitude.
