You Already Know What You Need To Do

by John P. Weiss on 7/22/2014 7:14:42 AM
6 Comments

So here's the deal - we are all in different seasons of our lives. Some of you are raising little ones and others are empty nesters. Maybe shift work is making it really hard for you to get more exercise. Whatever the scenario, a lot of us love to play the "some day" game. Don't do it. Take a good hard look at your schedule and figure out where you want to make changes. Get up earlier, learn to say no to people (nicely), shut off the television and close the liquor cabinet. You don't have to retire or finish raising the kids to chip away at your dreams, goals and passions. Remember, you already know what you need to do. Now, go do it! [...]

I remember that I love the paintings that I create. I take that deep breath… then walk in their door. [...]
