Health and Lifestyle
Most of you reading this are entrepreneurs. When you run your own business, it’s very easy to put yourself last on your priority list. There’s just so much to do! You don’t have time for [insert activity here]!
Most of us have more control over our own lives than we sometimes want. I mean, don’t you sometimes feel like saying, “Here, you make these decisions for me. I’ve got enough on my plate”?
The paper today carried a front page story about a local cyclist who was killed by a car. Two cars, actually. I’ll get to that. It’s such a tragedy. He had just recently graduated college, his friends say he wanted to make the world a better place. The first car that hit him, kept going. Then a second car hit him.
Everything we feel or do is a syndrome now. Have you noticed that? It seems like every personalty trait can be described as a disorder. Morbid jealousy disorder, paranoid personality disorder.
Here’s what my students learn: Enter a room with confidence, head held high. If you don’t think you’re worth someone’s time, why should they? Look people in the eyes. If you shake hands, use a firm grip. No floppy fish and no vice grips. Again, confidence.
Oh, no! Say it ain’t so, Joe! That grand all–America pastime is bad for us? No more burgers fresh off the grill? Or chicken or fish? Or a steak, if you’re into that. And grilling has something for everyone. Portobello mushrooms “steaks” and vegetable kebobs taste better cooked that way.
Two weeks ago, I had some reconstructive work done on my nose and the doctor doesn’t want me to work out again for another two weeks. This is difficult for me for several reasons.

Anyone who doesn’t like getting older isn’t doing it right. Life gets nothing but better with every passing moment. Okay, maybe not “nothing but,” but I stick with my statement. If you don’t find that the maturity, wisdom, calm, experience, and everything else you gain as you mature doesn’t far outweigh anything you might be giving up, then you have a problem that has nothing to do with age.
