Get After It: Be True To You

Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476

"If you really want to do something,

you'll find a way;

if you don't, you'll find an excuse."

~ Jim Rohn

Your action for today

is to take something

you have been making

excuses for not doing,

and either do it

or stop saying you want to do it.

(This removes self-imposed pressure;

you delete unnecessary resolutions

to focus on a truly beneficial New Year's Goals).


Design An Extraordinary Day!

Hello Thomas - finding excuses seem to be a dime a dozen.  Perhaps there is a relationship between the two.  Hmm. . .

Hi Thomas - people don't plan to fail but they fail to plan.  Set a goal and execute.

Hi Thomas,
As you may know, Jim Rohn was one of my favorite motivational / inspirational speakers.  As Yoda would say. "Do or do not. There is no try."

Hello Thomas,  I guess that why I write it down and use a check mark when I get it done.
