Well after a long hiatus from the blog, because of 13 hour
work days, and food consumption that was out of control I’m back on my second
day of my Medifast Diet. The last two
months have not been easy, and have been very trying on my
I now get what the life “guru’s” talk about when they say that you have to read
your goals everyday, if they are not consistently being brought into your consciousness
they fade like a distant memory of a good friend. Trying to find balance between work and my
personal life last month was just not feasible.
With the “weight” of millions of dollars in bank notes on my shoulders I’m
compelled to move forward regardless of my health. It’s almost ironic that I found the motivation
for weight loss in my work.
Last month I was a speaker at a regional industry trade
show, this obligation forced me to attend an otherwise unnecessary event, and
it is at this trade show that I saw a friend speak who reinforced an idea
already being bounced around in my internal monologue. As small business owners our business health
is a direct reflection of our personal health.
It sounds absurd but if you think about how essential the success or
failure of a small business is linked to the actions of the owners, then you
realize that if the owner is not running at 100% then the business can not run
at 100%. Would you be able to maximize
the throttle on your cars engine if there was significant carbon build up on
I feel weighted down constantly, both mentally and
physically. My business operates like a
fat person, sometimes we run great without any hitches, but the next day we go
to shit and operate in the excess.
Cutting costs and maximizing efficiency is like losing weight, and exercising. I have taken to heart that any type of
balance in my life can’t be achieved without the weight loss that I’m pursuing.
Because of the past two months set back I am changing the
dates of my goals.
