Keep the "main thing" the "main thing"

That's seems to be one of (many) challenges I have. Staying focused. I'm sure it's a challenge that a lot of us face.

I definitely lost focus around the holidays. I was finishing the house renovation. I moved in 4 days before Christmas and I'm slow in rebounding. It's been weeks since I've been to the gym and my new best friend (along with my brother-in-law) has been Miller High Life. We're purveyors of the High Life. Not good.

But wait on the horizon there is a light...a ray of hope!

I just ordered Tom Venuto's new book The Body Fat Solution: Five Principles for Burning Fat, Building LeanMuscle, Ending Emotional Eating, and Maintaining Your Perfect Weight. Sounds like just what I need. Ending emotional eating (and drinking) for sure.

True to form I've already started to mess with my head. I'm like, "great I'll get this book, then I'll apply the principles of TT and use some of Jon Benson's training tips and start listening to Tony Robbins Personal Power again".


Read the god damn book and apply what it says.

The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.

I know Venuto talk s a lot about setting goals which is a weak area of mine.

Robert Heinlein said - "In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it."

Makes sense to me.

Happy New Year everyone.
