Two of my three brothers would not get vaccinated. I came up with a strategic and tactical plan to change their minds and get the jab.
One of life’s philosophies that I swear by is applying business principles to my personal life. It works surprisingly well. I even co-founded a mastermind group many years ago based on this methodology. I’ve seen the members of our group do this every month with successful outcomes. So I approached the idea of convincing my brothers to get the Covid-19 vaccination like writing a business plan.
I frequently hear my friends and authorities on…
After two years confined to a 42 square meter (450 square foot) living space, Anne Frank was murdered.
Yes, she officially succumbed to typhus and there were many events leading up to her death. Of course, there were the Nazis and the Dutch neighbor who reported Anne and her family to the Nazi Grüne Polizei who arrested them and deported Anne to Auschwitz and then Bergen-Belsen and forced labor and starvation and even the lice that transmitted the typhus if you really want to get down to it; but Anne Frank was murdered by the Nazis.
One could use this…
I LOVE this. I already typed out my own personal challenge! I broke it down into daily, weekly, monthly and weekends categories and then added a beforehand category which is to edit my comprehensive budget. Then once a month I compare my expenses with my budget.
Sorry for your loss. I appreciate your storytelling. It's therapeutic to read about something that many of us are going through. I grew up on a farm in a rural area that is almost 100% Trump supporters - including my entire family. I've always been good at compartmentalizing and I think that has helped me deal with this issue. I am not going to let Trumpism ruin my otherwise amazing relationship with my family. I'm just not willing to give him that win.
I love your idea of eating more protein and healthy fats and substituting some cardio with weightlifting. But do you really think eating only one meal a day is sustainable for most people? Do you think you can achieve the same results by still eating three meals a day?
I’m not a venture capitalist but I have started and bought many companies. Some failed. Most succeeded. On a recent trip to my alma mater I stayed with friends and had the good fortune to meet their daughter who was the executive director of a VC firm in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, North Carolina area known as the Research Triangle.
I asked her the above question.
There has been a lot written on about this, but I wanted to hear it first hand from someone in the trenches so to speak.
Here were her simple answers: Besides the typical…
Thank you for your wonderful insights and suggestions. Many years ago, I personally met Susan Jeffers who wrote, Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway. She lived in the same building as a close friend. She invited me to her place and gave me a whole stack of her books. She sadly died of breast cancer not long after our meeting, but her wisdom lives on in all her books.
My mantra that everyone could use: Exercise and Portion Size. Period. It’s so simple.
I lost weight in the pandemic. My BMI is 19. Mostly that’s because I had the time to work out more. I also ate all my meals at home.
When you cook all your own food, it’s easier to make it healthy and in small portions. Don’t buy junk at the grocery store. Don’t buy junk for your kids either. You’ll be doing them a favor. …
I used an app called, apptracker, that easily allowed me to log the time I spent on everything. I did this for two months. The results were enlightening. I recommend everyone do this for at least a couple months. The truth is always in the numbers and if you don't know the numbers, you don't know the truth.
