New Year is traditionally a time of assessing where we are and where we want to be. Many people take this time to create “resolutions”…

  • I’m going to lose weight.
  • I’m going to exercise more.
  • I’m going to stop getting upset about dumb stuff I don’t control.

Sound familiar?

Totally cool.

But let’s be honest, how many people actually FOLLOW THROUGH ON THEIR RESOLUTIONS?

…I’ll wait…

Don’t worry. I’m not asking this question to JUDGE you or to tell you what you should or shouldn’t do with your resolutions. However, I am here to say that there’s a science to GETTING STUFF DONE and it’s called…


You see, the reason most people FAIL at their resolutions is because they don’t have a PLAN, let alone a “REAL” PLAN.

So before we go into what a REAL PLAN looks like, let’s just get real about what resolutions ARE…

Resolutions are just DESIRES or WISHES that you make of the UNIVERSE thinking that it will respond by giving you what you want…ON DEMAND.

But here’s the thing. The UNIVERSE ISN’T your MAGIC GENIE.


We live in a UNIVERSE OF sowing and reaping…



  • A PLAN.
  • A SPECIFIC SET OF ACTIONS that you will take that are MEASURABLE, ACHIEVABLE and RELEVANT to your DESTINY here on Planet Earth.

Mailed to you every month for $7.

KICK ASS and CHANGE LIVES. For the price of a LATTE?

So, let’s say your DESIRE or WISH is “I’m going to exercise more.”

Try this instead:

“I’m going to wake up on work days at 6am, go downstairs to my office, do 15 minutes of a very specific set of exercise followed by my morning meditation.”

Now, that’s a PLAN.

  • It’s ACTION SPECIFIC: What exercises will you do?
  • It’s TIME SPECIFIC: What time will you do them?
  • It’s LOCATION SPECIFIC: Where will you do them?
  • It’s FREQUENCY SPECIFIC: Daily? For how long? Where?

That’s it.



And you know what? That’s the ONLY New Year’s Resolution that I have.

The ONLY one. And it’s pretty kick ass.

Now of course, I have other GOALS like I’ve stated in here and more in-depth in my War Room group. Here’s a few of them just so I’m on the record again because ACCOUNTABILITY is another SUREFIRE way to DOMINATE your RESOLUTIONS and ANNIHILATE your GOALS.


(1) Open a 4th location for my clinic in a South suburb of Houston and get my West Houston associate going down there with 20 patients a week in the first month (totally doable with the network and resources we have at this point).

(2) Get to 100% paperless intake and charting process without using some monolithic EHR system.

(3) Produce several booklets and other printed materials from both War Room and 5-Element Functional Medicine trainings that will be used to further spread the goodness on those two programs.

(4) Get my podcast going with the help of my man Jonathan Rivera who’s going to help me CRUSH this.

(5) Complete the War Room Training Portal version 2.0 which is going to be a total game-changer for the program and our members – with even MORE streamlined and simplified processes for creating a powerful mindset and message, running ads, crushing it in clinic with efficient processes that deliver heart and leadership to patients and employees…

(6) Get the general endocrinology and reproductive modules done inside 5-Element Functional Medicine and continue to refine and lock-in our process on the Clinical Rounds calls we do every week (which are AMAZING already).

Those goals are RIDICULOUSLY BIG.

They’re not resolutions. They’re PROJECTS.

And for me, my resolution of EXERCISING more is going to be CRUCIAL for this — it’s actually going to be like the HUB of this wheel. It’s going to be the SOURCE of the energy, focus, and drive to make sure I stay on track with these other goals.

So… question remains.. what is YOUR very SIMPLE, very SPECIFIC resolution for THIS YEAR?



Can you tell me…

  • Who?
  • What?
  • When?
  • Where?
  • Why?
  • How?

And Let’s CRUSH IT, together. ???
