Going Out to Drink and Staying Optimized
Alcohol. It’s a real factor that plays into how we feel and ultimately how we look. When you’re in business, you know how difficult it can be abstain from going out to drink with colleagues or clients. The truth is, although opting for water or iced-tea is best, there are some alcoholic drinks that you can have that will not impact you as negatively as others.
This cheatsheet shows you what you need to be mindful of the choices that you make when it comes to drinking. Reducing the affects of acetaldehyde (the toxic component of alcohol) can drastically change how easily you recover from a night out.
Getting By On Less Sleep… Easily
Sleep is always looked at as something that is fixed, immobile and resistant to change. We are told we need a solid eight hours and that that is the case for everyone. But we know as businesspeople or busy people in general that we aren’t always wired to sleep that much. Sometimes we are tired, but other times we are wired and thinking about work or how to be more productive.
This cheatsheet instructs you with tangible steps that you can take to enhance the amount of sleep that you already are getting. Maybe you’re only getting four hours of sleep? But a 100% effective four hours of sleep is much better than a disrupted four hours. What you eat and what you do prior to climbing in bed could allow you to get more waking hours to be productive.
Cheatsheet for Being Prepared
Planning is key. The secret to success in business, health, and even family is having a plan of attack to take action on. In this spirit of being able to take action and execute on things that matter, it’s critical to know what to execute on. The problem is that when you hit unexpected delays or even impromptu meetings, it throws a wrench in your plans. So the trick here is to “be prepared to be prepared.”
The purpose of this cheatsheet is to give you a breakdown of what you can physically keep in your glovebox, briefcase, or office that you can turn to when you hit an unexpected bump in the road. These non-perishable foods can be what separates you from making a poor decision that sets back your performance and your appearance at that last-minute meeting. Being satiated will allow you to make a conscious, clear decision when going into a situation where temptation has the potential to rear its ugly head.
