The Work

It’s so easy to give up. All you need to do surrender to the circumstances that surround you; to the daily distractions of your life. And just like that you are part of what Chris Guillebeau calls the Unremarkably Average.

You know what I am talking about:

  • You spend more time on Facebook than doing the work.
  • You spend more time criticizing than doing the work.
  • You spend more time coming up with excuses than doing the work.
  • You spend more time planning for the work than doing the work.

You have a limited amount of energy. You have a limited amount of time. And when these precious resources are gone… they are gone. I have lived with the regret of wasting too much energy and time because I thought there will always be tomorrow. But here is the rub, tomorrow is not a guarantee.

You and only you shoulder the responsibility of getting the work done. You must take the awesome responsibility to fight for what you want because no one will do it for you. You must begin today without equivocation to do the work that will allow you to become the person you have envisioned.
