1. know what you want to do/ where you want to go
2. know where you are now
3. know what you have to do, to get where you want to go
4. do it.

[ From David Taylor, the Naked Leader, and various entrepreneurs saying the same thing in different ways over the years in numerous business management books]
Same message.

*Know where you want to be/what you want - SPECIFICALLY define that thing in clear and unambigous, measurable terms, whether it is to create a bestseller, learn a new language, build a shed, go to Paris in the spring, or lose 20 pounds of blubber.

* Define the gap between where you are now and where you want to be/want.

*Decide if you are willing to pay the price to get there. Greater the pain, the higher the price. Only you can work that one out in your life.

* Decide to pay the price and make it happen. No bleating. Your decision.

* Do it. Starting right now.

This is what seperates the folk who say - oh yes, I could write a book if I only had the time, from those who have finished work sitting on editor's desks. Published or not.
Other folk are not willing to pay the price.
We are.
And we should be **** proud of the fact that we have paid the price and made it happen.
No going back. No surrender.

" Past is destiny; you can't change it. Future is free will; it depends on the choices you make today." Author Unknown.
Today is Tuesday 18th September, 9am. What difference are you/ am I, going to make by 9am tomorrow?

Now all we have to do is make it happen. I love Paris.

What's playing on my YouTube right now? Natasha Bedingfield - I bruise easily.

Good morning. Ah. Self denial comes into that one I think, and nobody likes that feeling.
Best of British. At least you do not have the cold weather food to sustain you/encourage blubber production as nature intended.
LOl and enjoy the sun.
