My guest Tracy Timm, is a Yale graduate with a behavioral psych degree.
She’s a human capital advisor for Dallas’s fastest growing companies and a career coach for executives and young professionals.
Tracy said, we spend more hours every week working than doing anything else. Our mindset around work effects our ability to perform in every other area of our lives.
If we hate what we do, but we spend all of our energy pretending to like or just getting through the day, then we have very little left to give to the people in our
lives who really need us
By being honest with ourselves and honest with the people around us that we want more and are made for more, we live more authentic and meaningful lives and
build up stores of energy that can sustain us through the hard times but also allow us to be the best version of ourselves

If they had, they could have learned about the results we/I was having with my clients more than twenty years ago.

Millions of people buy infomercial exercise equipment and eating programs because they believe they're going to look like the person on T.V. They also feel entitled to have their desired body while disregarding all of the consistent hard work that goes into transforming thoughts and behaviors to realize the outcome they desire.
A new norm isn't created because you purchased an exercise device, or diet program. A new norm is created through repetition and use of tools designed to move you in the direction you want to go…in any facet of your life.
How does a company like Fitbit motivate owners of the device to actually use it, and to do so with consistency?
What changes did they make to motivate people?
A UK, Australian and U.S. survey shows an estimated 30% of Fitbit owners do not use them.
The show took some turns we didn’t expect but it was all salient commentary to guide you in the right direction for the change you seek. We recognized the importance of individuality and case-by-case scenarios rather than a blanket statement of what people “Should” do to affect change
