You know that old story about how to boil a frog, right?

If you put the frog in boiling water, it will immediately feel the temperature difference and hop out.

If you put the frog in room temp water, it will be as happy as a …well…frog. You turn up the temperature gradually and the frog is no wiser until it’s too late.

The moral of the story is that if you allow those seemingly “under the radar” things to slowly heat up, all of a sudden you find you’re in a world of hurt.

The answer is to make sure your most important areas of business and life, including your mental and physical health, are not allowed to sit in a pot of slowly boiling water until bad things happen.

Create daily disciplines to make sure your business strategies, your financial goals, your security, and your lifestyle are all under control and soaking in a hot tub, not a boiling pot.
