In many ways, our lives are not much different than a business. In running a successful business for a long period of time many activities and decisions are carefully considered. One bad decision, the inability to adapt quickly, not resourcing or budgeting strategically, losing sight of the big picture, making results the only thing that matters, or not getting the vision right can hurt or ruin a business.
The same is true for us in our lives. In the quest to live a vibrant and healthy life, many decisions will need to be made daily. Often, we become overwhelmed with the competing priorities and inundation of information about living a healthy life. Applying business principles to our lives can help us to strategize and align what we do with what we want. Remember, the business of your life will be the most important business you will ever run!
