Good is the Enemy of Great
Good to Great is a book written by Jim Collins in 2001. When we settle for good, great is not a possibility because we sometimes get very good at something we forget that we can get even better if we continue to push ourselves. We need to fight that urge to catch our breath and take a break once we have accomplished a goal. We need to act and seek the next goal and challenge to grow. Enjoy the journey, but continue to seek growth, knowledge and excellence.
Good to Great leaders understood 3 simple truths:?
1. Begin with who, rather than what, you can more easily adapt to change.??
2. If you have the right people on the bus, you don’t have to motivate them, they are self-motivated by the common will to be great.
3. If you have the wrong people on your team, direction doesn’t matter. Great vision without great people is irrelevant.
“If we did all things we were capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” Thomas Edison

Nutrition Tip: Thinner This Year
Thinner This Year is a plan designed by a team of health and fitness experts in their fields assembled by the Younger Next Year authors based on the overwhelming response to their book released in 2007 of that title. These daily nutrition tips come from one of the authors of the book Thinner This Year by Jen Sacheck, Ph.D Associate Professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition at Tuffs University.
Three Fundamental Concepts:
1. Exercise alone is not enough on its own for you to be “Thinner This Year”. Exercise is the flywheel of weight loss, weight management, and the quality and quantity of energy you will have every day.
2. You simply have to eat less. Western cultures are 20% fatter now than we were 30 years ago simply because we eat 20% more than we used to. It is mostly a matter of portion control, less on your plate less in your mouth.
3. What you eat matters. In America, we eat an amazing amount of Dead Food (high caloric density, low nutrient density). Tired of feeling like crap? Stop eating it, refined sugars, rice, flour, and solid fats, along with chemicals for shelf life are sapping your energy and making you fat period.
