Information vs. Application

It’s easy to use “the latest science” as a guide for your healthy living plan.

The problem: don’t conflate new science with proven science.

Science is fundamentally built around a series of questions.

The first answer to a question is not always the right one.

And in health, the first answer tends to lead to 5 more questions before you truly know what you need to apply to your life.

When the same question is asked over and over and over again — and the answer provides clarity — that’s when you’ve arrived at a good conclusion.

If you are always reacting to information, then you are always changing, shifting, and rarely consistent.

You might consider it informed.

It’s just as easy to look at it as unstable.

A healthy mindset is flexible in the face of convincing evidence. No one wants to follow a broken plan that simply had flaws that were previously invisible.

A dangerous mindset shifts with every new piece of information.

When you learn something new, consider its context and depth. Every new piece of information is not worthy of application.

If you keep on changing, then you’re more likely to keep on chasing.
