We've all heard the old saw: You are what you eat.
Increasingly, research is proving this old axiom to be profoundly accurate.
What we consume in the way of food impacts our physical wellbeing immensely, down to the cellular level. What we feed our spirit impacts our peace. What we feed our minds shapes our worldview, our understanding, our wisdom, our mental health.
Conversely: Garbage in, garbage out.
Organizations are nothing more than collections of human beings. Thus, organizations are also living, breathing organisms that have their own version of body, mind, and spirit. The health and wellbeing of the organization, too, is dependent on what we feed it.
What are we feeding our bodies, our minds, our spirits, as individuals?
What are we feeding the organizations to which we belong (their bodies, their minds, their spirits)?
In both, we choose - minute by minute, day by day, bite by bite, interaction by interaction.
