Happy (unofficial) fall. It’s that weird time of year when we sadly say goodbye to summer days by the pool but it’s still hot enough for tanks and outdoor dining. I’ve never been a fan of the cold months so I’m motivated to hold on to the spirit of summer until the last possible moment. Speaking of motivation (see what I did there?????), I’m working to find mine. I could say I took some time off from blogging during the last two weeks because my career gobbled me up. Technically, that is a true statement but the real truth is I knew it was coming but lacked the discipline to prepare so the blog could keep moving despite me being busy doing other things. What else is new?
That lack of discipline derailed my fitness goals, my balanced diet, my writing and a lofty home organization project. Everything is on the “To Do” list but nothing has been crossed off. I even took to putting some things in my calendar. Guys, I have literally been pressing snooze on a project in 2 hour increments for 2 weeks. No joke.
I figure there is no time like a new season to recommit to being motivated and disciplined. I’m using a mantra to kick off the fall.
The time is now.
And it is for literally everything in our lives. Thinking of starting a new business? The time is now. Want to lose 30 pounds? The time is now. Want to write a book? The time is now.
Life moves quickly. Before you know it, a year can pass and all that has grown in your life is your “To Do” list. Why not get serious and start crossing things off?
