“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”

I’m sure you could come up with a few others.

Habits

February 28, 2011

Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.” -Warren Buffett

I ran across this quote today as I was researching Temp employment companies. I like it. I’ve got some habits, some bad, heavy habits. I am aware of them, and I am working on them. One habit I have is the need for everything to be just right…uhm…I mean perfect…if it’s not, I have trouble moving forward. Another bad, heavy habit I have is I make excuses instead of taking responsibility, but I’m sure that’s not my fault. I’m also in the habit of procrastinating. I’ll work on that tomorrow. My point is, even though my bad heavy habits are making me crazy, I still need a job so I have to push through…tomorrow…if everything lines up…

Thanks for listening…do you prefer paper or plastic?

“Commit yourself to constant self-improvement”

So six months ago I put out the word I was looking for a treadmill, cheap. I friend told me he had a client giving one away to make room for a new one…even better. All I had to do was get it. I did. It’s an older model, no frills, no bells or whistles either, but it is in “Mint” condition and built really tough.

For the last six months I’ve been walking almost everyday. I started slow, but I’m not a very patient man, and it wasn’t long until I was walking an hour each day. I also stopped going to McDonalds and most of the other Fast food places. I still eat pizza and Chinese and ever so often I’ll get a burger at a real restaurant.

So far, I’ve lost 20 pounds, and I went from a tight size 40 jeans to a loose size 38. I’m sleeping better and I feel better. I’m not sure that I’m totally committed to self-improvement, but I am committed to continuing to walk on my treadmill and loosing weight.

I pulled this pic of the web, it’s the same model, but mine is Mint!

Close your mouth and listen. Open your mind and think.

Write. Do.

“If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.” ~Benjamin Franklin

Either is good. I’m gonna try both.
