From Umm to Umph!
There is huge difference between wanting to do something and actually doing it. There are so many goals I have for myself. I want to improve in many aspects of my life. (time management, exercise, writing, and the list goes on!)
But once you have decided what your goals are and even gone a step further and written them down, how do you get to the part where you actually work toward them? I want to go from point A to point B but somehow I never leave A. What stops me? What stops you? How do we kick that roadblock out of the way?
Well my problem is where is that roadblock? If I knew what was keeping me from moving forward I would jump over, go around or push it to the side. What impedes progress? Is it laziness? Is it a lack of wanting it? What is it?
Frankly, I don’t know what it is, but instead of saying to myself “OK tomorrow I am going to do this!”
I am now going to say: “Right now is the time to go workout!” “Right this minute I will clean out that messy closet!” Not tomorrow, because tomorrow may never come!
What in your life do you need to go from “Ummm” to “Umph”? Let’s do this! Take that goal and start today, right now!
