Life is so dynamic and multi-dimensional. As business people, we are always forced into this one-dimensional way of thinking. That we can only be good at one thing and that by allowing the focus to deviate from that one thing, we reduce our effectiveness in business (or what our core pillar is).

This was a perfect example of me not too long ago. I was hyper-focused on my business… a successful business at that, but I was afraid to step away or divert in any way towards anything else. As a result, I was overweight. More than overweight, I was bona fide fat. But I didn’t really care because I thought that I was focused and kicking ass in what I was presently working on (one of the largest ancillary service providers within the healthcare industry). The only thing that getting healthy would do would shift time away from what mattered to me most (money and providing for my family).
