Go Chuck Yourself: In fitness – Let’s say you’re 100 pounds overweight, out of shape, and just getting started with exercise. Are you gonna try to run a marathon, pack on 50 pounds of muscle, get great at Yoga, and compete on Ninja Warrior…all at the same time? Chuck no – that’s a recipe for disaster! Put your focus on weight loss; get really good at eating right, exercising regularly, and staying consistent. You can deal with the other things you’d like to accomplish once you master that first goal.

*From the Indecent Proposal “money shot”, to feeling like she was shot in the head. Life goes fast. Make sure you are ready for the afterlife.
Alfred Peet 1920
I always had good personnel. I paid more than the going rate. But I worked too hard, because I couldn’t delegate. I wanted to oversee everything. I said, “I know exactly where I want to go, but I can’t explain every thought, every idea I have for the future of this company.” Many people left. I was burnt out, so I had to sell. Do you know what it’s like when you’ve given so much, there’s nothing left?
*Whether it’s at work or as you start to build your business, find a way to delegate something today that you would normally do yourself.
Carrie Underwood 1983
No matter what, remember what matters.
In “Jesus Take The Wheel” and “So Small,” we can reevaluate our lives and realize what is most important to us. It is in our most dire moments that we realize what matters to us most. We should never take for granted those nearest and dearest to us, and it is through our struggles that we become who we are.
*Listen to Carrie Underwood while doing her leg workout, which can be part of your “ELAMM”
Jon Hamm 1971 – brown sugar bourbon ham
“I am very cognizant that I am playing a character. Don Draper is a pretty dismal, despicable guy, so why I would want to take him home with me I don’t know… It’s a strange thing. People tell me they look up to Don, like they look up to Tony Soprano or Walter White [in Breaking Bad]. People have these weird fascinations with people who in reality you would not want to be for a second. There seems to be that vicarious thrill. Maybe it is the fact of doing everything wrong and getting away with it.”
*Remember “ELAMM” and stick to one slice of bourbon ham and wash it down with just one bourbon.
