Don't Wait

The bell rings—ready or not.

Believe it or not, lunch and boxing have a lot common. For example:

The bell at the beginning of a boxing round rings and the fight starts whether you’re ready for it or not. But it also ends—ready or not. People seem to think that “saved by the bell” is a good thing and that the boxer must ALWAYS be ready to be done. But if you’re winning, you may not want the fight to end. If you’re losing, you may want just a little more time to turn things around.

Personally, I don’t want to be at the end of my life’s rounds wondering why I didn’t start fighting as soon as the bell rang and I had the chance, or sad that my time is up before I could do whatever it is that I needed to do to win. The bell’s not going to wait for any of us.

Use your lunch today to do that thing or be that person you want to be. Don’t wait.

There's never a wrong time to start.

The thing about lunch is that it happens whether you’re intentional about it or not. So there’s never a wrong time to start. It’s not about creating the perfect lunch. It’s about a better one, and that can happen anytime.

But if you’re a person who likes to start at what feels like a “clean slate” point in time, today is both Monday AND the first day of the month. If you’re not already using your 15+15 for you, what’s your excuse? Start today.
