I think there was or is a card game by that name but I've never played it and I don't even know the rules. It's one of those words that the more you say it the stranger it sounds. Sometimes I feel like it should be the title to my personal them song.
I started analyzing the word and realized that there might be a way to turn a setback into a positive thing. What if when I experience a setback I take a moment to set (sit) back and reflect on my goals, my plan for reaching them and what actually causes my setbacks.
What happened yesterday? Setback. Not a major one, it was afterall only one day. But I know myself and one day turns into two or three and then my bad days out"weigh" the good. I think I was just having too much fun to care. I definitely let myself get too hungry. There was a serious lack of grab and go healthy snacks at home to take the edge off.
What can I do today to prevent another setback? Go home and cut up those veggies to snack on, pick up some snacks to put in my desk at work so I don't leave the office hungry.
