So I’ve stopped talking about what I’m going to do

will tell ya when I'm going to celebrate, but not until somethings been accomplished

Man, we spend our entire lives talking about what we’re going to do. And how much of it actually happens? So I’m no longer content with talking about what I’m gonna do. Instead, if someone asks, then I’ll share what’s been done.

Does this thought process ever cross your mind?

  1. Patty, I’ve found excuses get way to much leverage on shoulda, woulda and coulda. Instead, did, done, made it happen.

  2. Jeff,

    I know – this is a post from a couple of days ago, but it is still on my mind.

    You are right. I spend time telling people about what is going to happen (whether personal or professional), and what I have found is that I spend a bit of time in frustration when either the situation or myself doesn’t meet with the expectation.

    That’s a lot of stress I put on myself! I need to re-think some things. 🙂


  3. Bob, I make myself ill sometimes thinking about all the stock I place on the gonna do syndrome that’s followed me all my life.

    Yeah, rethinking has merit.
