I know I am right, so why should I change?

As I reflect on my conversations around LOGOSYNTHESIS, I recognize that we often hold a great deal of emotion in our beliefs.

THE HEALTHY LIVING PLAN  is a forum to share my learnings and perspectives on personal development with the aim to stretch all of our thinking beyond our comfort zone so that we can build upon but are not limited to our habits and the teachings of our parents and our professions.  I am a dietitian but this is not in the scope of dietetics practise.  I have an MBA and although organizational behaviour theory has certainly plays a role, this is … Read More
