What the BLEEP are you doing? That’s a question that I asked myself yesterday. This question came after a lunchtime twitter conversation that I had with Kelly and Courtney. It first started off about PR companies and their lousy pitches to diabetics about losing weight and blah blah blah. It then turned into a conversation about how I actually do need to lose weight and it brought up some of my horrible eating habits that I know that I have.
And then I asked myself that question. How many times have I said that I was going to stop eating unhealthy. How many times have I said that I was going to exercise more. How many times have I said that I was going to blog more. Or do this more, and do that more and then I just don’t do it. This isn’t just in my “diabetes world” but also in the other worlds I live in, like running my own business. I have a to-do list of things I want to do to help grow my company about 10 pages long and none of them are getting done. Why? I know I’m short on time, but I know that I can better manage my time.
Which leads me to think about my time. The more of this unhealthiness that I put myself through the less time in the end I may even have. What the $%^& are you doing Chris?!?
I think yesterday really lit a fire under my ass. I’ve been reading a lot of productivity and time management books and blogs and listening to podcasts over the last few months to help me become a better business owner and person. It has led to a lot of note-taking and to-do’s but not action. It’s time for some action.
And isn’t it funny how one simple twitter conversation can make such a huge difference?
