Izzy is my personal trainer. She teaches me how to do things in the gym, what a “plank” is (seriously, I didn’t know that a year ago), and how to lift weights without hurting myself. She also gives me nutrition advice. But one of the most important roles she plays is keeping me honest, and making me show up. I am extremely deadline-driven — if somebody gives me a deadline and they expect me to do something, I will prioritize that thing. It took me decades to realize that I had to treat my health the same way I treat my work. I had to hire somebody who would expect me to show up and deliver on my health promises. I didn’t realize that this deadline thing applied to my health in the same way it applied my career until last year. I’m glad I finally did.
