Find out in the new, amazing, FREE eBook, “What’s Science Got to Do With It?”
Some of my knuckle-headed friends like simple explanations that are not “rocket science.” Hey Connors, “You’re into all that health stuff; how do I lose a lot of weight real fast?” At which point I suggest they, “put on a fully loaded weight vest and sprint up sand dunes in the afternoon sun. Everybody’s doing it. You’ll look great in no time!”
There’s a nearly 100 % chance your IQ is higher by some magnitude than some of my friends. You might actually question my advice instead of saying, “OK, cool. I’ll give it a try.” If critical thinking is not a skill set, at some point one does something stupid because it was easy to understand, and that’s the way everyone is doing it.
Over the past couple months I’ve been watching billions and billions of episodes of “COSMOS, A Space Time Odyssey,” hosted by Neil Degrasse Tyson. This stuff is rocket science. And it’s wonderful.
“Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton asked why?”
It seems the greatest intellects throughout history have wanted to understand WHY things happen the way they do. Once they figure that out, it becomes a mission to share that knowledge with the world — and often against great resistance. WHY is scary, mysterious, life-changing. Knowing WHY leads to new ways of WHAT and HOW.
Science Gives Us the Answer to WHY
If we don’t know WHY workplace wellness hasn’t worked, if we don’t get real and come up with ways to make work healthful, we will fall behind as individuals, as organizations, as communities, and as a nation. Do you really want to spend your days running up sand dunes with a weight vest on? That is what workplace wellness is today.
Read the new eBook, “What’s Science Got to Do With It?,” and get some answers.
Here’s an excerpt from the summary:
…we feel it is our job to first answer the question WHY before we ask you to make changes in the way you think and the way you do things. When the WHY is understood and embraced, we believe you will you be better ready to engage in the WHAT to do and have confidence in the HOW to go about it.
