Do you know yourself, or do you aspire to be something you will never be?

Karl T. S. Jackson

Who do you see?

Too often we are out here busy chasing the dream that someone else presented to us and we never take the time to consider what truly energizes us. Sometimes we hear about how great the money is, but end up miserable and stressed. But, I have that money, right?

The other issue is that we surround ourselves with folks with the “can’t do” attitude when in reality they just do not have the same drive or motivation you do.

I was talking with some 8th graders last year and one told me that his parents told him he could never be a doctor. My mind was shocked, but I had to let him know that with hard work he could get it done. Without the family support, he would just have to work even harder. It is harder to break the cycle of negative minds in your own household, but those barriers must be broken.

In June of 2016, I was involved in a car accident. It affects my lifestyle daily both inside and outside of work. Over the last 16 months, I have learned to manage the pain that is a 7/10 on a good day. I do not have a chair in my office because sitting down increases the pain, so the majority of my days are spent standing or laying down. This includes when I eat. Unless you get curious as to why I never sit down, then you would never realize anything is wrong. The biggest issue is that when attending public events, this makes you look rather suspicious and puts others become uneasy.  New normal routines have been created out of the necessity to evolve and adapt, or mentally break down and potentially become depressed.

What do you procrastinate on?

Earlier, I listened to a Ted Talk my cousin sent me, Tim Urban: Inside the mind of a master procrastinator, and I found it funny for more reasons than just the delivery. It is because I could relate.

Although he carefully planned out how to tackle the task, he still ended up having to write 90 pages in 72 hours.
