For my life up until the last two weeks I have been fighting the battle with myself the wrong way. When I knew I had to do something I don’t like I have tried to push myself through keeping the negative attitude, hating what I had to do, and trying to last until it was done.
In the last two weeks I have discovered something I have probably heard for the last 50 years but have chosen to arrogantly ignore.
I focus now on how I will feel when I am done with the distasteful task. I think about it and keep thinking about it and it motivates me to do the task and complete it. This includes: water flossing my teeth, cleaning my computer screen and keyboard, snowblowing the driveway.
The possibilities are endless I now see.
“Old too soon, smart too late?” Old too soon is true. But it is never to late to learn.
