Life Axioms – Part 2

Earlier this year I read an entertaining book called “Living with a Seal” by Jesse Itzler where he literally hires a Navy Seal to privately train (and live with) him for a month. It’s a hilarious read to be sure. There’s an offhanded comment in the book about how Jesse only eats fruit till noon. I had never heard of this concept and was intrigued when I read it. He said he got it from a book he read almost three decades before.

That book is called “Fit for Life” by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. Of course, I then had to read that book as well (I love it when good books connect me to other good books!). The book is about nutrition and specifically how your body processes the food you eat. There’s a number of interesting concepts in the book (I don’t really follow the other ones) but the primary one is about only eating fruit in the morning. I decided to try it myself and this has since become an axiom I live by.

Life Axioms – Part 1

I’m going to begin a new blog series on something I’ve been thinking about lately. We all have ideas that shape how we act and why. I’ve been trying to recognize what those are for me and put words to them. Once you recognize what they are in your life, you can decide if you like them as is or if they need to be refined.

I’m still working on my list, but I think they’ll make for an interesting blog series. These are in no particular order, and I’m not even sure how many I’ll ultimately have. Without further ado, here’s one for you.

Life Axiom: Talk to people in your home only when you can see them.
