Excuses

If I want to do something, I do it. I wasn't always like this.

I used to be a charlatan. I would talk big and wouldn't follow up. How many people do you know that say "I'm would like to go Thailand someday" and then never do? It's not because they can't. It's because they don't want to. How hard would it be to save up some money, plan for the trip, and then actually go? 

This is the same with people who say they want to lose weight. Make more money. Get a new job. Learn a new skill. And then never do. Don't just say you want to. In fact, don't say anything at all. There's a study that says if you tell people you're going to do something, you're less likely to do it because telling it to people satisfies your brain enough that you never have to do it. 

So my question to you is: what's that one thing you've been putting off? What's that thing you keep telling people (or even just yourself) that you want to do and you haven't even started. You don't need more time. You can start right now. Time is a man made invention. It doesn't really exist, but the present is real. It's all we have.

The best time to start was last year. The second best time is, of course, right now.

What are you waiting for?

I've been writing this newsletter for a while now, every monday. And i've never missed a monday! Until this week. I had so many things to do with school and work, but i always keep my promises and here it is. A day late, but I hope you enjoy it.

But most importantly, I hope you do something with it. 

 

-Happy Tuesday-
