But we’re talking about eating—not telecommunications
For my 445th consecutive blog, I thought I would dedicate one more blog to my “4” theme. About a year ago, I posted a blog about the 4 G’s of eating responsibly:
4 “G-word” Reasons for Eating 4Leaf
- Good for your health
- Green for the environment
- Generous to others (land equity)
- Gentle on the animals.
So there you have it, a quick and easy way to remember with four G-words: good, green, generous and gentle. In the tech world, 4G is the latest and greatest fourth generation of mobile communications standards. In the world of promoting health and saving the planet, 4G is a simple, yet incredibly powerful concept. Here’s the blog where those four G-words were introduced:

“4 Leaves of Health.” Before we leave this “4” theme, let’s quickly review my “4 leaves of health” referenced in an earlier blog:
diet, exercise, rest and purpose.
Most of my work is aimed at the first one, but I must continue to remind myself that there are three other very important requirements for health and happiness.
Purpose. The first three leaves are fairly straightforward—but the last one, purpose, means different things to different people. To me, it is all about having a reason for living. For some, it is a definite mission in their life. For others, it is religion or family. And for some, it could be a combination of many things. Whatever your reason for living, I am convinced that it is an essential ingredient for true happiness. For your convenience, here is a link to that earlier post:
