Make Change

April 10, 2018

I’m told that only 20% of heart attack victims make meaningful long-term behavioral changes. But there’s one characteristic among them.

Before we go any further, a moment of self-examination: what changes would you like to see in your own life?

These usually fall under the categories of finance, relationships, health, career, and spirituality. And not necessarily in that order.

A Wharton Business School has long spoken of Work-Life Balance, but has recently switched to Work-Life Integration as the goal.

Again I ask you: what changes would you like to see in your own life?

So what is the one common denominator among that 20% of heart attack survivors who make successful changes? “They have someone in their life who is there for them,” according to page 22 of Your Retirement Quest, “someone to encourage them, to hold them accountable, and truly care about their well-being.”

Who’s “there for” you like that?

And equally important, for whom do you offer encouragement, accountability, and “care about their well-being” today? After all, Let each of you look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:4)

Serious stuff. Spend some time with our three questions today —


What changes

would you like to see

in your own life?


Who is “there for” you

with “encouragement,

accountability, and care”?


For whom do you offer


accountability, and care”



See you back here tomorrow.
