[MMM] Choosing Your Own Career Luck

March 21, 2016 | The “Choices” Edition

Good Monday Morning,

I’m all about finding simple ideas to improve.
Research shows that by reducing the amount of meat you eat, one can not only reduce weight but also reduce your carbon footprint & improve your long-term health.  Thus, I have been consciously reducing the amount of meat in my diet.
A National Cancer Institute study of 500,000 people found that those who ate the most red meat daily were 30% more likely to die of any cause during a 10-year period than were those who ate the least amount of red meat.
The idea? V.W. – Vegetarian Wednesdays.
Foodie trucks: they are all the rage, but unless you want to eat poutine, it is pretty hard to find a healthy vegetarian meal.  Not any more. Just beside my office, a new Thai foodie truck has been cooking up a storm. Since it was Wednesday, I ordered a Vegetable Pad Thai. When I came back to pick up my lovely meal, she offered me a fortune cookie.

The difference was that she let me choose it out of the box. Unlike all previous experiences where the waiter brings the cookie to you, she let me choose among the dozens of scrumptious folded biscuits. A simple idea, but definitely an improvement on the usual experience.

By implementing new simple choices in your life, you can really choose a better future .

What did my fortune cookie say, you ask?

 “An upward movement initiated in time, can counteract fate.”
