Seth’s Blog: Crash diets and good habits

The secret is showing up.

Your audacious life goals are fabulous. We’re proud of you for having them. But it’s possible that those goals are designed to distract you from the thing that’s really frightening you–the shift in daily habits that would mean a re-invention of how you see yourself.

Organizations can always benefit from better habits. Every day. Do that first.

the step-child blog

Well hello, long time no chat. Yes, I have concentrated much of my efforts on this blog at octavity.com and at simpleweight.com.

It is not that I don’t much to say, its more I use the time to say it constructively tackling other projects.

We’ll see. I might move this to a tumblr or posterous type blog rather than wordpress to make it easier for me to post. Although WordPress is simple. I just like the idea of being able to post via email. I know I can set that up in WordPress. I just choose not to for security reasons.

Can this step child blog, find the fairy god mother and turn into royalty?
