How many of us get caught in the same rut day in and day out? Not just the big things, the little ones too. How many of us wake up, hurriedly get dressed, and run out the door with little more than a cup of coffee and maybe a banana?
I used to do that. I would get to work in start having Low blood sugar symptoms by 10:30 or 11:00. By the time I got to eat around 12:00 or 12:30, I had difficulty thinking straight and was angry at everything. It’s not the way to work, and it’s not the way to live.
I have recently worked at eating better and started making avocado toast once or twice a week in the morning. It’s easy to do; an avocado is less than a dollar. I mash it up, mix in a tsp of salad dressing and some bacon bits, smooth it onto some toast, and I have an excellent start to the morning with a great breakfast.
What could you do before work that would make your day?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
