I know the title of your article is supposed to be descriptive of what is in the article, but I didn’t make up that rule so … how do I make a smiley face with the tongue sticking out!
I read a great motivational article today called “Arm Yourself Against Excuses – Winning the Fight Against Yourself”. I expected it to be the usual 7 steps or 6 ways starting with step 1. Put your clothes out the night before … blah, blah, blah! I’m getting very jaded aren’t I. The author instead described his morning struggle to get up early and run 5K in terms of a boxing match.
Now this is the sort of thing that works for me. I am a highly imaginative person so any time I can use my imagination to take me out of a situation I find difficult and fool myself into getting the job done is great. Of course doing it the hard way might gain me some personal growth and maturity. Hmm, Nahhhh! This article really spoke my language. I will never be the person that puts ten things on a list and gets them done by checking them off the list. I don’t get it. I don’t understand that. I don’t know why that would work. Boring!
Anyway too bad I read the article after I was already TKO’d by the excuse that I have been very tired lately and fighting off a cold so I should give myself the day off today. I have to admit I feel GRrrreat right now. That is partly because once I did leave my cave this morning I discovered that winter was gone and spring had arrived. Yeah I know it is temporary but let me live the dream for a while. All the snow was gone overnight. The air was fresh. The dog presents were now revealed on my front lawn!!! I don’t have any dogs! Oh well, we will soon have a nice freeze and I can shovel this mess up.
