Willpower is HARD. It’s been said that one wakes up each morning with a certain amount of discipline, but as the day wears on, that discipline starts to wear off. Sure, we can start our day off with a nourishing breakfast, but we can’t forget about lunch. With just a little planning, you can have a beautiful and nourishing meal ready and waiting, giving you the willpower to resist the cookies that your coworker INSISTS on bringing into the office, or keep you from heading into a fast food drive thru.

I set out to dedicate the month of August to Back-to-School blogs, which seemed very logical at the time. After all, it’s back-to-school season and Green Apple Supply was inspired in part by a particularly poignant back-to-school shopping experience. Yet, here I am, one week in, with writer’s block. How is that possible?!
I have spent the past week tossing and turning back-to-school blog ideas around in my head, asking for input from friends, family, complete strangers…and nothing. Although I am unquestionably dedicated to the health and safety of our children, the idea of blogging about the specifics of their day-to-day is not where I want my blog to focus. Quite frankly, the variety of blogs is astounding – I would be arrogant in assuming that I could do better than the amazing options that already exist.
I want to dedicate my blog to the core concepts behind Green Apple Supply and Compassionate Capitalism. I want to discuss how they have infiltrated my life and I want to inspire others to bring them into theirs. Of course, these concepts have relevance to back-to-school season, but I feel that was adequately covered last week. And these concepts are bigger than any one “season”. This is about bringing business strategy and sustainability, in all senses of the word, into our daily decision making.
