One of my wife’s favorite meals is a meat loaf I make (heavy on the vegetables—we call it beetloaf) and roasted broccolini with a spicy lemon and pine nut dressing. If I made it once a week she wouldn’t complain. That makes my life easy. Meal planning can be a real bugger. For people who love food, it’s easy to fall into the trap of needing to make something new, interesting, or exotic every time you make dinner. And nothing…
Dani Weaver didn’t weigh herself for two years. She knew she was overweight, but she didn’t want to know the number on the scale. “I had always assumed I was around 275 pounds,” said the five-foot-seven Dani. In September of 2017, she decided to find out for sure. She stood on the scale and watched it spit out a number: 307. “It was a slap in the face. I didn’t think I could ever weigh that much,” she said. Seeing…
Working from home has never been more common. While it has been growing for years, 2020 brought a whole new era of remote working. For those who have been stuck in an office for their entire career, perhaps the thought of being able to work from home was a dream come true. It definitely has its advantages: no commute, no dress code, no constant supervision, and more flexibility to mix your personal needs with your work day. It would be…

So we've decided to share a story with you — a story that will help you understand our own journey in starting the Whole Life Challenge and how we ended up where we are now. EVERY JOURNEY STARTS WITH A SINGLE STEP... Most times you don’t even realize you’ve taken it. The opportunity is to…
Have you ever just had one of those moments where you felt like you needed the relaxation that meditation might offer but you either don't have the time or you don't have the mental energy to do it? Well today I offer you a simple technique that contains much of the calming power of meditation without any of the drawbacks. You don't need a lot of time (it only takes one minute!) and you don't have to worry about the…
For everyone taking part in the Fall Whole Life Challenge, welcome to Day 1!! As we get underway, I wanted to give you some words of advice (in the video above) on how to make these next six weeks the most successful they can possibly be.
We must do certain things simply to sustain our lives. We eat, sleep, move, and we connect. These are not habits: They are required. Without them, we wouldn’t live. While these activities determine whether we live, our habits surrounding them determine how well we live and the quality of our lives.
We believe excellence is a habit.
We all want extraordinary results overnight, so we can be tempted by fads and snake oil. The reality is that overnight-change doesn’t happen. Even when it looks like it does, it almost never lasts. The 7 Daily Habits that constitute the Whole Life Challenge not only improve the quality of our lives, but also give us the foundation to eliminate habits that harm us.
