Wednesday Revisit: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Diabetics


Wednesday Revisit has returned.  It’s about revisiting the past, revising what I wrote, possibly editing it, because we all grow and change and that includes what we think about life with diabetes.  Plus, I find that I catch more typos if I edit my stuff months after I wrote it.  So inconvenient but better late than never!

This post is one of the most popular on this blog since I wrote it.  It’s obviously inspired by Stephen Covey’s book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.  It’s one of my favorite posts because I reread it from time to time and it always helps me back on track.  That Stephen Covey is one smart guy.  So if you didn’t catch it the first go round, I’d be honored if you read it now and maybe give me your feedback on it…  Happy Wednesday!

Wednesday Revisit: Diabetes, Self-discipline, and Paradigm Shifts



I just reread this post I wrote on November 15th 2009 and realized I needed a refresher.  This is one of the most read articles on this site.

It’s about the powerful notion that when we change our perception about things, the right decisions for our health can also be the easier ones.  It’s a journey, not a sprint, however.

Anyway, have a great Wednesday and check out: Diabetes, Self-Discipline, and a Paradigm Shift Part I (the end of the post links you to Part II if you’re interested)
