WRITING – A HEAVY PROJECT

imageimageimageimage

HEAVY – LIKE SNACKING AND NOT EXERCISING WHILE WRITING!

I now have a current view of the worlds obesity problem. First, there is no secret that it is very pleasurable to eat. Second, no one forces you to eat, so it is a choice. Third, eating choices both volume and type effect body fat. Fourth, no one is keeping any of this a secret. Fifth, exercise is very important in maintaining health in general and weight specifically.

I have lost 15#’s so far and plan to lose another 15#’s in the near future. That was my original goal but after checking my closet I have some neat stuff that require another 5 to 10#’s. So, how am I doing this you ask? By following my fathers advice: “If you are fat it is because you eat too much and if you are not hungry you are not losing weight!” As a chef most of his life he had first hand experience.

Conclusion: if you want to use Weight Watchers, Atkins or any of the organized helps, that cool, but it still comes down to my fathers advice with a little self control thrown in. So please don’t blame McDonalds or Lays, I sure don’t blame all those snacks that attacked me while I skipped my exercise and blimped up! I’ll blog when I reach my goal, no pictures please, I still haven’t figured out the other aging tell tales!

The government will soon becoming out with a new department to oversee that we eat healthy and exercise, so if you ignore my fathers, advice they will be around and help?

UPDATE: 3/17/13 – – WEIGHT LOSS TWENTY POUNDS!!

PROCESS – VS – RESULTS

imageimageimageimage

 

A problem for governments and businesses alike is non-productive work, or busy work. Sweat is often confused with productivity. A cluttered desk, long hours, even dedication can be confused with results. We devote a major focus in the book to process vs results. Today my research yielded a startling new example of process (non-productive work)  robbing a business of productivity and therefore the ability fairly care for employees and customers alike. I have no way of putting a full measure to how much human effort is consumed in process that  is of no real value. Waste profits no one!

WRITING A BOOK

 

I, like many of us, have always said I am going to write a book. Supporters have said. ‘yeah, you ought to write a book’. I have always been principle driven. One of those principles has been you must confront your fears. So when sitting on the boat , alone  in the Sacramento Delta,  it dawned on me the reason I had not written a book, was because I was afraid, so it then became imperative. I began writing and quickly realized, while I had a lot to say, I was a better public speaker than writer. I called my long time friend and associate Mikie Baker, AND before I could get the words out she said, ‘it’s about time!’ As we near the finish of the project I will share a couple of thoughts.

First, writing a book is like standing in front of an audience without your clothes on!  Second, and I quote my hero:

“If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.” ~ Steve Jobs

P.S. I will share a comment from one of our  editors on the ‘Results’ Chapter, “This chapter is the foundation of a subversive plot to overturn a sluggish economy, recession, unemployment – and instigate a complete change in our government! Dan Scoggin must lead this charge! Dan, it’s never too late! Go for it! You got my vote!!! – Forrest

 

Forrest’s comments makes me feel better about being on stage but  my only interest in politics is being KING!

Dan Scoggin’s book’s working title is ‘Triceptive’. It is about the founding principles of T.G.I.Friday’s, early turn around and subsequent success. It’s about principled decision making in business & life.
