“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new.”
– Dan Millman, in Way of the Peaceful Warrior
In 1st Quarter 2016, I’m focusing as fully as I can on an income goal. This means I’m deliberately exerting no willpower whatsoever to stop myself from eating whatever I want.
But I AM going to try to develop a food-routine that gets me all my recommended daily nutrients with only whole food.
That’s going to take a big pile of veggies.
If I have room left over, I can go to KFC, guilt-free.
I believe that’s going to go a hell of a lot better for me in the long-run than trying to cut stuff out.
In your career, change is also more likely to happen by positive action (adding something) than negative action (taking something away).
i.e. Be more communicative with clients by sending more comments to them per week, as opposed to trying to cut down on the amount of frivolous comments you leave on Facebook.
