Only one thing matters

“Everything matters… until you get ill, then only one thing that matters… your health”.

It’s an adage I’ve heard many times before.

I was reminded recently, during a rare period of fever and illness, how frustrating it is to have zero productivity and feel like trash.

The science of mitigating health problems is clear; healthy living


  • Sleep at least 8 hours a night,

  • Avoid sugar and processed food.

  • Exercise daily.

  • Get outside often, and walk whenever possible.

  • Surround yourself with amazing people, laugh, play, and have fun.

It is a painfully simple formula that seems impossibly hard for many people to implement.

There are no shortcuts, as each one takes effort, time, discipline, and most importantly prioritization.


By contrast, a snapshot of our population will show the opposite of the advice above. Overweight, tired, unhappy looking citizens have become the norm rather than the exception.

Ask people about their routines and you will hear a plethora of excuses as to why they can’t train, eat well, or get to bed on time.

These same people will likely not mention their hours of staring at phones, sitting on couches watching TV, or their multiple take-out meals per week. 

There are no shortcuts, discipline is hard. Take action one small step at a time, and with patience and consistency, you will be a walking billboard of the heath you prioritize. 

  • Now that’s a peak ethos.
