The Moment

Perhaps all of life comes down to the moment over and over again. Successful people act in the moment, others don't. What is the moment? How would you recognize it?

Here are some examples:
  • Sunday morning, waking up and feeling rested - Do you get up and exercise or lounge around in bed watching TV?
  • Weekday 3 PM, sitting at your desk and feeling tired - Do you go the vending machine for a soda or do some stretching at your desk?
  • Weeknight, before dinner - Do you stop and get pizza on the way home or do you toss a salad and cook dinner?
  • Weeknight, after dinner - Do you sit on the sofa and watch reality TV or take a walk with your spouse, kids, pet?
By and large, people that are healthy and fit use the moment to make the choice that best supports their health. Health doesn't come in one big dose. There isn't a pill to take and you're not going to wake up one day 20 pounds lighter. Health comes from making the "right" choice 80% of the time. The other 20%??? Have some fun and be aware you're doing it on purpose.

Health comes in the moment. Each and every one of them.
