Music did not reveal all of its secrets to just one person. - Ralph Vaughan Williams
Learning from the Best
Change the word "music" to leadership...to nutrition...to anything you choose. It's still true.
I have learned about nutrition from many people. Many people spend their time learning about nutrition and health. On Saturday mornings, I listen to The People's Pharmacy on my local NPR radio station. I learn a massive amount of stuff every week. Here's the link to their site: http://www.peoplespharmacy.com You can get podcasts of their programs for free. Why wouldn't you want to listen to a program where experts share the latest knowledge about nutrition and health?
Leaders are healthy and eat with care because they know that their diet will impact their ability to perform sooner or later.
Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary, M.D. has had a massive influence on the thinking and dietary discipline for me and for my wife. Here's her profile on her site at http://drkulreetchaudhary.com - Integrative neurologist Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary discovered a beautiful side effect to the eating and lifestyle tools she gave her brain patients–spontaneously shedding excess pounds. Excess weight is a result of the body being in a toxic, inflammatory state. If your body is not prepared or ‘primed’ for weight loss, you will fight an uphill biochemical battle. Our bodies tell us what we need for nutrition, if we know how to listen to the messages.
An article in Psychology Today discusses how food affects our brain. Almost everything you choose to consume will directly or indirectly affect your brain. Obviously, some things we consume affect us more than others. Read the article HERE.
If we know that a healthy diet helps us function at a higher level, then why do we eat things that compromise our functioning?
Transformational Leadership is moving our functioning to the highest level.
Why don't we do it?
