I am exited to post this first post on XiberHealth.com. I have been pondering on how to cut through the trees and see the forest of healthy living. It is a big topic, and many jump on the latest fad. So you find sites with organic, medical, yoga, work-life balance, and many more. You know what I mean.
Then suddenly it struck me: Change is change. Having been a change manager most of my professional life, I realized the same principles apply to making healthy lifestyle decisions. Unless you have a systemic approach (call it holistic) and use that systematically, you can get you head around the mess and the clutter.
Healthy Life Style Performance Model.
I call it – Healthy Life Style Performance Model. Gleaned from Dave Hanna’s Organizational Performance Model, it gives you a clear process for diagnosing your health and life style situation, and allows you to design your lifestyle with intent. With your intent, not the one that someone else dreamt up for you.
We don’t Know what we don’t know
Our biggest problem in taking care of our health is our lack of knowledge. In training terms, our unconscious incompetence – we simply do not know what we do not know. So we are lured from one point to another, depending on what gets advertised to us on TV or multimedia. Without using a model, you are “up the creek.” Worse, you may have happily lived your life and suddenly someone tells you are having a “disease.” Without a Model, you will be in the hands of the “specialist” – if it is a surgeon, he will want to cut you open. That is his job. If it is a general practitioner, chances are that you get the latest drug the pharma industry has wispered in her ear – maybe 10 years ago… And so on – you get the picture.
In the coming Blog posts we will got through this model, from diagnosing your health situation, and looking why you are where you are, and then move into the step by step approach of getting the new you in place.
Our membership program will give you access to the templates and training videos for each step. Every week, you get the next step in the process. This is not about quick fixes. If you want that, this is not for you. This is about creating a lifestyle that fits your needs, supports your life vision, and has all the ingredients to give you the opportunity to create a happy, healthy and long life.
Mind you – whether you are 30, 40, 50 or 60 – you may think that people who are 90 or 98, like my father in law, are old. You actually have to potential be become a lot older. Take steps now to make sure it will be a pleasant journey.
Also expect that I share articles that are “sticking out,” things to think about and seriously consider to make part of your lifestyle, and bring you to the next level. We live in such exciting times. We have access to solutions that our parents couldn’t even phantom. Cut through the crap, let us help you to make decide on healthy life changes.
I am looking forward to your comments and inputs!
