Welcome to episode 91 of Optimal Health For Busy Entrepreneurs.

Someone steps on the scale and sees they’re 15 pounds heavier. Someone gets some blood work, and their blood sugar and cholesterol levels have risen. Or perhaps someone who has low energy and their everyday performance has dipped. The typical person would focus intently on these issues. But these are simply the symptom, not the cause. In this edition of Mental Model Monday, I’m sharing with you why treating the cause and not the symptom is the approach you must take and some questions to help adopt this mentality.
