i don't think i have ever given 100% to something i really did not want to do.
whereas i accept nothing less than perfection excellence as a student and as a leader, i tend to half-ass things that don't "make the cut" in my life.
how appropriate then - when violating both my health/fitness AND no-buy challenges - was this fortune i received in my take-out order?
i always have excused not following through on goals i set for myself that were uncomfortable. i could always easily rationalize late night binges, lack of exercise, or impulse buys given my busy and stressful lifestyle, but then i'd cry later about being fat and having no money.
i am far from perfect, but i cannot continue to accept mediocrity in these areas in which i really need to grow. i must begin to treat them like they are important because they truly are. health, both personal and financial, are real-life issues that must be addressed, and will not just disappear with time.
so for today, i am committing not to perfection but to the beginning of a new mindset in which i approach these goals intentionally and with fervor. i cannot expect to realize these goals if i keep making exceptions.
