After failing to lose weight in three consecutive years, I realize that setting some goals as a resolution doesn't really work.
This year, I decided to take advice from doctors and experts: make some changes in life and keep them as a habit. "Behavior change is a learnable skill, and you can learn it".
A few advice which worths taking:
1. Drink more water. The first thing after waking up is to drink some water. And drink more water in a day.
2. Add protein to the breakfast: Add an egg. Sometimes eating an apple is ok.
3. Take a walk/jogging 2-3 times a week.
Good habits can last long and be beneficial in the long term. The fact that I failed to lose weight in three consecutive years probably means that it is a habit and behavior issue and I need to solve it in the long term strategy.
Another big failure comes from my career. It's our 6th year. In the first three years, it grows. However, after 3 years, Fooyo still stays as a small company, and no radical breakthrough has been made. This drains lots of energy and passion from the core team. We have to make changes.
"Things don't change." After talking to a senior who is a co-founder of a local legendary consulting firm, I realise that it is very difficult for an organization to make changes. There are two possible scenarios: 1. if it is a structural issue, it must come from a major bomb that changes have to be made. 2. if it's a behavioral issue, then we have to make changes from habit/behavior perspectives.
Unfortunately, I think it's both a structural and behavioral issue. We have to change. I think the same principle of weight loss could possibly apply to the organization level as well. Let me figure out how this could work.
