I recently celebrated an exciting milestone. I have officially gone one full year without eating sugar! Now that’s not 100% – everything has sugar in it these days. But I stopped eating what I call “avoidable sugar,” a term that I adopted from one of my mastermind students. In other words, I cut out the desserts and the snacks – cakes, cookies, pie, ice cream, and one of my personal weaknesses, peanut M&M’s. I don’t think it’s an overstatement to say that I was – and probably still am – addicted to sugar. I didn’t think that a milestone like this was possible!
I know some people who are able to maintain moderation. They eat a little bit here and a little bit there. The problem is, moderation isn’t easy for me. I’m much more an all-or-nothing type guy. Quitting desserts cold-turkey was the only way I was going to be able to make a real change, and I’m so glad I did!
This idea of going all-in is important in our businesses. There are some things in your business that either can’t or won’t be accomplished through moderation. For instance, if you’re trying to do your “on it, not in it,” time in moderation, chances are it’s not going to happen. Sure, it might happen for a little while, but not long enough to make any appreciable difference. Instead, it’s important to go all-in. It’s time to fully commit to improving your business, to put the necessary time in to really make a difference. You’ll be so glad you did!
