I’m big on the whole lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise. Those of you that follow me on social media have a good idea just how much. My basic philosophy is that we should live lifestyles that make us harder to kill and that good health does that.
A buddy of mine was telling me about apple cider vinegar (ACV). As if that didn’t sound bad enough he used words like ‘mother’. Drink the stuff with mother in it, he said.
That just sounds nasty. Like a taste-filled booger sliding down my throat that smells like stank butt.
But I did like the sound of the potential health benefits from it, so I wondered if there were alternatives.
There are. I’ll tell you in a second, because that’s not the main point I want to make.
This is. How often do you consider a complete other direction point-of-view of the things you do? I’m talking completely in the opposite direction. In tactical terminology we called it asymmetric warfare. It can make a huge difference in any area. You’d be surprised by how often the complete opposite way of doing things works.
I’ve also heard it stated as “Slow is Fast. Fast is Smooth”.
Try it the next time you get stuck on something.
Now back to the butt-tasting, apple cider vinegar with mother drink.
Companies came up with the idea of making ACV gummies. We all love gummies. Gummies are awesome. ACV is awesome. Why marry the two in a perfect union of awesomeness?
There you go. Assymetric thinking. Gross and nasty meets yummy to make awesome.
You do that next time. Take a problem or issue, turn it on it’s head, shake it up and down, and see what falls out.
