Is Health Advice from 100 Years Ago Applicable Today?

Posted by on in Blog | 0 comments

As you will soon see, 100 year old advice is very applicable today. This is the 100th anniversary of a classic book by Col. Wm. H. Hunter – THINK. I inherited it from my Grandmother and it was one of our favorites to read. Each chapter really makes you think. It is amazing how far forward he was thinking in 1918. If you request the full version you will get the whole story about Granny and the book.

I wanted to share chapter 32 to see what Col. Hunter had to say about exercise in 1918. You will see not much has changed: sedentary lifestyle, labor saving devices, using technology to make life easier, our reliance on doctors, fad diets, lotions, potions and pills.

If you would like to get a PDF of the entire version of THINK I will send it to you for free, just email me at Chip@GetSwitchedOn.com. It will make you think. I recommend 15 minutes a night.

Building Commitment at Conventions and in the Office

Posted by on in Written Blog | 0 comments

How effective is your team making and living their commitments? Having a culture where people hold themselves and others accountable is essential. I came across a simple yet powerful idea this week that will build commitment and accountability at your next convention and in the office.

I was chosen to customize my Get Switched On program for a large pharma company this week in NJ. They are working to have their managers drive empowerment to their front line teams.  I saw an interesting idea I had seen before. So often at the end of events or conventions there is not a clear call to action. Have a Wall of Commitment created like the one in the picture. Commitment cards are printed for everyone (quality card stock, 3×5/4×6, company logo, room for My Commitment and Why). Talk about this during the event so people can begin thinking about what they will write. Also have them choose an accountability partner to stay in contact with.
