What's Your Favorite Pig-Out Food?
I’ve noticed this question in fluffy celebrity interviews. No one has asked me yet. But just in case I have my fluffy answer ready. It’s pizza. I could eat pizza at least 4 or 5 times a week.
You may not share my pizza passion. So imagine the question come up in your fluffy, celebrity interview. Allow me to ask you…
What's YOUR Favorite Pig-Out Food?
If there were no negative consequences, what would you choose to eat multiple time per week? Or even per day?
Why do I ask?
While our favorites may vary, we all have them. And we tend to choose them more often than our less favorable choices. Our food decision making can provide clues to our workday decision making. Let’s take a closer look.
What about our work choices?
What is Your Favorite Work Related Task?
As with our favorite foods, we can fall into the trap of over indulging in choosing to do things we’re more comfortable doing at the expense of the uncomfortable tasks. What part of your job do you enjoy the most? How does that effect your routine?
What is Your Least Favorite Task?
What are the things that land on your plate that you’d prefer to avoid? You’re unlikely to ask for a second helping. When you avoid them, what are the consequences?
A Coaching Moment
When I started in this business in 2002, I had zero clients. But I had one coach. In one of our coaching sessions, I confided my least favorite task. It was cold call prospecting. I hated both the inefficiency and the frequent rejection. Despite my distaste, I was reasonably skilled at it. And I had a family that literally needed to eat.
My coach listened to me whine about not enjoying the task. His profound response stayed with me for all these years. And it inspired this post.
You know Tom, I really love chocolate. I could eat chocolate all day, every day. BUT sometimes I know that I need to eat my broccoli.
That was the last time I ever whined to Arnie Rintzler. And I proceeded to pick up the phone and reach out to strangers which gradually built my practice. Many of my clients have, in turn, learned to eat their broccoli.
We all owe a debt of gratitude to Arnie!
What is the broccoli that you need to be eating more frequently?
