Follow The Navigator

Posted by on May 25, 2015 in maintenance, self help | Comments Off on Follow The Navigator

Maybe the navigator of our health care system is over rated. Americans spend more money treating the side effects of medication than the cost of medication itself. There was a ship in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.  On this large ship was a gruff, heavy set captain who was shortsighted, slightly deaf, and very opinionated. He and his crew followed the principles of majority rule on decisions about navigating the ocean. On board the ship, they had a very skilled navigator who knew how to read the stars on voyages.  This navigator was better than anyone on board at getting the ship to it’s destinations, but the navigator was not very popular and was rather misunderstood. One time, in the panic of being lost at sea, the captain and crew made a decision based on majority rule to...

The 80/20 principle can be applied to everything Be pro-active and take medicine as last resort like the 20% believe Have you ever heard of the 80/20 principle?  It’s actually Pareto’s principle, named after the man who came up with it. The 80/20 principle states that while 80% of a population is doing one thing, 20% of the population is doing something differently. The 80% is the herd, and the 20% are the leaders, the innovators, and the people who are able to think for themselves. For example, 80% of this country believes our health care system is great and there are no problems with it.  Unfortunately, the statistics show they are living an illusion and are not living in ‘reality’. 20% of this country knows our health care system is failing and they seek out other treatments besides...

Our health care medical model is failing us in many area. Iatrogenic, doctor mistakes and medications, are not 100% safe, people die. I want you to imagine with me for a second that we lived in a world where in America three jumbo jet airplanes crashed and killed everyone on board, every three days. Stated a different way, imagine 122 days out of the year there are three plane crashes with complete devastation and loss of life.  Imagine if every year 366 planes crashed leaving no one on board alive. I know this is a scary thought, but what if it were true?  The question I have for you is if this were true, Would You Fly On An Airplane? Some of you might actually say yes.  After all, hundreds of flights take place throughout our country each day and you might...

Today I’d like to share with you how to become healthy without tricks, gimmicks, and schemes. Let’s go! You may or may not believe this, but what I’m about to share with you is probably the most important bit of “advice” you’ll ever receive from me.  It’s not anything new, nor is it anything complex.  To the contrary, it’s as old as time and incredibly simple. But, don’t let its simplicity fool you. It’s timeless for a reason. It works. One of the biggest roadblocks to success in terms of your health (or anything else for that matter) is a LACK OF MOMENTUM. biggest #roadblocks to success is lack momentum Click To Tweet...
