Tangentially Speaking

491 – Brian MacKenzie (Human Performance Specialist, Sorta)

By August 28, 2021One Comment

Brian MacKenzie and I had a good chat about how “working out” should be more like play, how psychological issues manifest in our physiology, and how rejection can hit the body like a car wreck. Brian is the Founder & CEO of Shift. He is also the President and Co-Founder of The Health and Human Performance Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to researching how breath and innate tools can optimize and help health and human performance. Brian has also co-authored the book Power Speed Endurance, The New York Times Best Seller UnBreakable Runner, and UnPlugged, which assesses the integration of emergent technology and human performance.

  • Brian’s ideas about how language is a reflection of the culture even from a physiological POV were fascinating. Makes one wonder if Western languages’ display of ‘wasteful’ words in our conversations isn’t also a reflection of our constant need for more and more energy resources.
