This might sound strange but this approach is the best way for me to get the most for my fitness while on vacation. Let me explain why.

Health and Money: Two things no one can do for you

Why do I write about both money and health?

This is why I wrote about health and money.

Compounding in your life

Your actions affect other areas of your life. Figure out what changes you want to make in your life and what actions you’ll need to make to get there.  

A big reason why I talk about both health and money is because both are powerful drivers for every area of your life, improving one aspect of your life helps all the other areas improve too. A rising tide (of intentional improvement) lifts all boats (in your life). Much like your body is a complete organism with various systems that all influence each other, so it is with all the various aspects of your life. A choice you make in one area of your life has ripples throughout your entire life.

Big Rocks

What are your big rocks

There’s this thing my mom used to always tell me, so much so over the years that it’s drilled into my head. “Take care of your big rocks.” she’d always say. She illustrated what she meant one day by setting a jar, some larger rocks, gravel, sand, and water on the table. It ended up being quite a lot of stuff. She asked me if it was possible to fit everything in the jar. I wasn’t sure if it was possible.
