008: Broccoli and Sweat

Most of us are spending too much time searching for a better way of doing things, and not enough time actually doing them.

Yes, there might be a better, more efficient way to lose weight than eating more broccoli and breaking a sweat at the gym.

Eating better and working out more works. And it probably works better than at least 70% of the diet systems, weightloss books, slimming widgets, fatloss supplements that all add up to a multi-billion dollar industry.

You already know what to do. You just don’t want to do it.

And the same is true for most things in life. We already know the answers to most of the really important questions. We just don’t like them, so we’re looking for something easier.

That’s the trap.

So take one problem you’ve had for a while and ask yourself: “What’s the simplest way to solve this that at the same time I really really don’t want to do?”

There you have it. Your answer. Now go do that 🙂

Don’t wanna? Well, welcome to the club.
