It’s THAT simple.
You ever hear someone consolidate directions down into a very simple set of steps... only a few dozen. That’s all! Easy, right?
I once had a peer who was trying to help employees with the mistakes they’d made in entering point of sale transactions on the terminals at Bally’s. She created a “cheat sheet” with ONLY 39 steps. I had to laugh. Why only 39? At that point, why not put 139 in there? I imagined, “step one - look for the mouse; step two - place right hand on mouse (if injured or missing right hand, please see appendix 22c).” There’s effective. Then there’s distracting overkill.
With regard to health and fitness, I hear many people say, “I know what to do, but don’t do it.” Then you don’t know. You are inundated with the “very simple” 493 step process you’ve cobbled together over the years. That’s distracting overkill. How’s that working out?
Let’s actually simplify and find effective. Pick one single behavior you’ll trip over which leads to other healthy decisions. The all-in versus all-out false dichotomy isn’t working for us as a society. Integrate something small, like ONE step.
Or, just follow this simple 493 step process. You know it by heart.
