Responsibilities in a notebook

What Responsibilities Are You Using As An Excuse?

Before I start with this topic, let me assure you that I am very guilty of doing this myself and this post comes from the last 2 years of me making tough choices to completely change the course of my life. I put it off for far longer than I should have because there were things I had to “take care of first”. Sometimes that’s true. Most of the time it’s not. In my case, it mostly wasn’t true.

“The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, ‘I’ve got

Effort vs Results – Learn to Love The Process

I was recently watching an Ido Portal documentary and he said something that put the final puzzle piece in something I’d had rolling around in my head for a while. I had been thinking about effort vs results. I don’t remember Ido’s exact quote, but it was along the lines of learn to love the process because the goal is bullshit.Continue reading

Create a 30 Day Challenge and Smash Your Goals

If you’re any good at settings goals, you know what you want and you’ve even figured out how to get there. Now for the hard part. You have to implement your plan.

Even when you do have time, will you have the energy? The trick to getting your you-time is finding your why.Continue reading

Maybe We Should Rethink Quitters Never Win

Vince Lombardi said, “winners never quit, and quitters never win”. I suppose that’s true in a sense but I think it gets taken out of context and applied in ways that make things worse. I heard someone say, “I’m all for quitting things that are making me miserable”. I tend to agree with him.Continue reading

2017 Baselines

After yesterday’s goal declarations I thought I better put out some baselines. Without baselines, it’s a lot harder to track progress. I’ll put out monthly updates so that I can see my progress toward my goals. I don’t think I’ll be filming my 5 mile run. Sounds boring.Continue reading
