“If you don’t like the road you are on, plow a new one.” This has been my motto the last couple of years. It’s been a mix of emotions, but I have to say…I’ve never been sorry or wanted to turn back. I encourage you to keep with your plan as you began your new year. Maybe you’ve seen a flaw or two in your plan ~ well, reconsider and figure out a way to tweek it so it works better. You can, in today’s world, learn how to do anything you need to do as you come upon to new challenges on your journey…I do want to point out one thing though…if you plow a road, then you need to plow as straight a road as possible.
The advantage to the internet is that you can find the answer to almost anything…the disadvantage to the internet is you can get distracted by almost anything. You will find dozens of people who all advertise they have the latest and greatest. Don’t get lost on the web all day moving from one set of instructions or program to another….none of them will work without a plan, action, and repeated action every day.
Decide where you want to be next month, break it down into daily steps to get there, and then commit yourself to doing each step, each day – just like you would if there was a grade being given by the professor the next day! How many of us remember late nights studying for an exam or writing a paper? It’s the same thing – you’re going to lose a little sleep. No it doesn’t matter which day you start…what matters is that you decide where you want that road to lead, plan your course, break it up into steps, and complete each step in a timely manner.
If you do exactly what you have been doing every day – you will be in exactly the same place a month from now, a year from now….
If you don’t like the road you’re on, plow a new one…and get started today!
Live simply, Laugh daily, and Grow gracefully…
