Quote from Scott:
Don’t make the mistake of locking yourself in the basement in order to generate money for your online business. It’s this type of ‘out of balance’ living that often times leads to a downward spiral where you lose out on the things that really matter most to you.
A list of some of those things that you may lose:
- Loved ones. (The divorce rate for homepreneurs who are obsessed with their business seems to be pretty high, just looking at my friends in this industry.)
- Your physical health.
- Your mental health and well-being.
- Years of your life that you can’t recover.
- Missed time with your kids that you can never get back.
You’ll also lose your creativity & focus & stamina which will ensure that you are less productive and earn less money. So, get off your computer butt, do your quickies, get more done in less time and be less stressed, too.
REMINDER: Try to do your two quickies at different times in the day, as it will serve to boost your metabolism twice in the day, rather than just once.
QUESTION for SCOTT: I was watching a show where very unhealthy very overweight people were brought into a house with a personal trainer who watched their diet and put them on an exercise program. Anyway, she had them do three – 30 minute periods of exercise during the day to boost their metabolism – one before each meal of the day.
My question is “Do you recommend that we schedule our quickies before our meals, too? And, does that help us to decrease our appetites and also burn the food more efficiently?”
After I saw the show, I got to thinking about a morning walk before breakfast, and doing my quickie a bit later, and then my cardio after lunch. So, you tell me, Mr. Personal Trainer to the IM world, ridding us of Computer Butt — what are your thoughts on that?
