IF YOU HAD TO IDENTIFY, IN ONE WORD,
THE REASON WHY THE HUMAN RACE HAS NOT
ACHIEVED, AND NEVER WILL ACHIEVE,
ITS FULL POTENTIAL, THAT WORD WOULD BE
I have a lot of 'meetings' with myself. I do a lot of thinking, worrying, analyzing, trying to see all sides of an issue, attempting to put myself in this scenario or in that person's shoes. I also do a lot of talking to myself. Whether it's pumping myself up or tearing myself down, there's an awful lot of yapping going on.
And maybe this is part of the reason why I haven't achieved all that I want to achieve. I spend too much thinking and not enough time doing.
Don't get me wrong - I'm a "considerer" at heart. I'm not about to just jump into something without some sort of loose plan. I'm old enough to know this about myself, and smart enough to accept it. But I can certainly put more of my ideas into action. I can give those ideas legs, and breath and energy and a pounding heartbeat and a soaring spirit. I can - and will! - do all of that…as soon as I reschedule that next meeting with myself.
By all means, let's keep checking in with ourselves and making sure we're on the right path, following our dreams, setting goals. But this week, let's also put one of our ideas in motion - make that call, pick up that book, join that club, apply for that job, try that new recipe. Take action!
And speaking of action, I'm taking a blogging break this week to finish preparing for the A-Z Challenge that starts April 1st. I'll be around, but this will probably be my only post this week. Have a good one!
