Every single success I've ever had in conquering mountains of: 1. fat, 2. debt, 3. clutter, 4. emotional crappage began and continued by making small, incremental changes. Every day raised the question "Is what I am doing today moving me closer to my goal?"
My next set of obstacles is overcoming procrastination, fear, dread, whatever to become a more complete, responsible adult. Specifically, I have some fiscal tasks that I need to complete - getting a rider for an insurance policy, increasing liability insurance, getting a new policy for Reata South, get some legal paperwork cleared up, take some other actions outlined in my financial plan, and a few other odds and ends. I've been postponing this. Or ignoring. Whatever. So my public challenge this week is to write down (in no particular order) the actions that I need to take in the coming months. I just need to get all of these things corraled and in one place so that I can start culling the herd.
In tackling these things, what I am really doing is assuming complete responsibility for my own actions and life. No one else is going to do this for me. No one else cares about it as much as I do.
Action Item for this week: Rather than fret about all those things floating out there that I need to do, I will quantify it. I will make lists so that I have a starting point and a reference point.
Anybody care to join me? What's your vision for your future? And is what you are doing today moving you towards that goal?
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Create a vision and the follow-through, with small, easier-to-manage steps.
