The 2-Minute Performance Problem

The 2-Minute Performance Problem

It's rarely what we do that harms us. It's what we do too much that can become a problem. So is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Sure. For me it's cookies. Sugar isn't a bad thing on its own. In fact, it's a fundamental component in cellular respiration that we need to survive.
