In keeping with the time of year to be thankful, reflective and to look ahead to a bright future, I received the e-mail below just before Thanksgiving from Michael Dalton Johnson, author of the book Rules of the Hunt. I subscribe to his mailing list from his website: www.SalesDog.com
I have read Rules of the Hunt at least three times cover-to-cover now and it is more useful every read. I highly recommend it! Buy it for yourself, buy it for your kids and family, your best friend, your employees…just buy it
It is jam-packed with great info like the content of the email (which I have printed and put into my planner, btw) I received below:
|This rock solid advice is a thoughtful pass along for friends and family that will be remembered. It was excerpted from my book Rules of the Hunt and has gone viral on the Internet twice. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving.|
|Make Small Commitments. Get Big Changes.
By Michael Dalton JohnsonTaking Care of You.Drink plenty of water.
Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.
Eat more fruits and vegetables and eat less that is manufactured in processing plants.
Avoid eating food that is handed to you through a window.
Live the 3 E’s — Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy.
Play more games.
Read more books than you did last year.
Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
Sleep for 7 hours.
Take a 10-30 minute walk daily. And while you walk, smile.
Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
Call your family often.
The worst promise you can break is one made to yourself.
Keep these rules handy and review them from time to time. Follow them and small, almost imperceptible, changes will accumulate into something big. Your life will change.
