8 easy steps

I was just listening to Alanis Morrisette’s song Eight Easy Steps (http://www.alanis.com/). Aside from being a kick-ass song, it’s also a clever parody of the quick fix world we live in. Got a problem? No problem! Take this pill. Read this book. Listen to this CD. Come to my seminar. Unwanted flab? A quick nip and a tuck and you’ll look like a million bucks… well, OK… $5K.

An old Monty Python sketch had a good laugh at the same subject: …This week on ‘How to do it’ we’re going to show you how to play the flute, how to split an atom, how to construct a box girder bridge, how to irrigate the Sahara Desert and make vast new areas of land cultivatable, but first, here’s Jackie to tell you all how to rid the world of all known diseases…

We like to believe there’s a quick fix for everything. There isn’t. It takes more than eight steps and they’re not always easy. Unfortunately, sometimes when that truth comes crashing down on us, we give up. Well don’t despair. Here’s another truth: we don’t have to make everything in life perfect. We simply have to improve… to make things a little better every day.

inpowr® was developed for just that reason: to help people make their lives a little better every day. It’s based on a couple of important ideas: 1) our well-being is directly affected by our daily actions; 2) we develop by understanding how our actions affect us; and 3) we learn and grow by engaging with ourselves and with others.

If you’re a member, you’re starting to see how your actions affect your well-being. Cool, huh! In a short time, we’ll be launching the remaining sections of the platform so you can make the most of your inpowr® experience. In the meantime, we invite you to keep working on your goals. Don’t forget to go back and rate your well-being every now and then. And please tell your friends about inpowr® too! The more members we have, the more we’ll all be able to learn from one another.

If you’re not a member yet, remember: well-being isn’t a destination, it’s a journey and, as the old Chinese saying goes Even a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. And the first step is easy: register.
