Seth Godin on crash diets and good habits

Genius marketeer and businessman Seth Godin nails it again.

Take a look at his post on “crash diets and good habits.”

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War  has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Outhas also done well, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

      I know… As much as we all wish and look for an easy way, or a shortcut, or an “easy button,” they unfortunately don’t exist…

      BTW, I need to go check your site out and see if I need to give you a hard time or not!

        Come on over, Stan. I’m changing things, slowly but unsteadily.

          Wow. Million times better. Have you had any others mention that they agreed with the changes? (I’d hate to be steering you wrong…)

            No, you were right. I got a lot of feedback saying the same thing. Thanks, Stan.

              Just remember that if you make it big and I don’t. Like to at least attend the awards ceremony with you…

    Forming good habits is key. The hard part is when you break them. It becomes another uphill struggle to get back into them.

      Yep. So much easier if someone’s riding your ass.

      I’ve told people that in some ways, college is harder than Boot Camp.

      In Boot Camp, you WILL do what you’re supposed to do, or else. In college, no one gives a shit if you do or not. A totally different challenge and it’s more applicable to life.

      Why do so many former military folks end up out of shape after staying in tip-top shape for twenty years? We both know that answer…
