My development is arrested…I’m the crazy one

I was just thinking today that I probably don’t thank people enough.

Hell, after all, I have a website, which has a podcast and blog. I can, and do, use this medium as a way to reach hundreds of thousands of people a month.

I know this because I have fancy programs that tell me how many people are paying attention, and exactly where they are on the planet. Ain’t life grand?

When I want to thank someone, I can generally do it in a pretty big way, just by using my own resources.

For years people have asked me to write a book about my experiences in the fitness and weight loss game. Though I had written a book once before, about a totally different subject (it wasn’t even for adults, it was a children’s book), I didn’t want to do it.

I guess you could say it was sheer frustration. You see, I can’t stand the very industry I work in. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve met some nice people over the last thirty years.

My problem (as anyone who’s listened to my podcast knows) is that I work in an industry that would prefer to tell you a lie when it is just as easy to tell you the truth.
