i'm a big fan of john maxwell, he's a brilliant man who speaks and trains globally on leadership. last week i listened to him talk about the three things to focus on in your to-do list: what is required, what gives the greatest return, and what is the most rewarding. he went on to say that when you can get required, return, and reward to line up then you know you've really found your groove. well, john maxwell didn't say groove, i add-libbed that one ;).
i had one of those in the groove days on saturday, when i had the priviledge of educating a few hundred people on life gluten free. it is so much fun to have that chat with a bunch of folks at once, and know that people leave with the opportunity to take better care of themselves. did you know that in america, 1 in 133 people have celiac disease? that's over 2 million people, and that's not the crazy part. the crazy part is that less than 10% of them know it, which means that 1.8 million americans have celiac disease and have no idea. not to mention the amount of people who have non-celiac gluten sensitivity - which, by the way, there's been a great turn in research for this month! at the university of chicago they've identified a marker that is present in those with gluten sensitivity which gives so much hope for a more conclusive testing process in the future!
apparently i was talking about this really big topic in this picture....looks like serious stuff!
on that note, i hope that what you're doin' is eating wonderfully delicious, gluten free food today,
talk to ya soon -
