“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.”--Peter F. Drucker
Those who know me, know that I'm a very strong willed person. Once I get an idea in my head it's very hard to stop me from getting to what I want and I'm very let down if I don't achieve it. It sounds like a bit of a 'spoiled brat' mentality, I know.
There are times, however, that I tend to stand in my own way. In recent weeks I've managed to put a giant roadblock right in front of myself. I've become complacent in my job, complacent in my heath and complacent in my life.
That is not to say that I do not live a charmed life! The last thing anyone needs to hear is another white American complaining about how they're unhappy with their life. It's not like I have to commute on the Gaza strip to work each day, or walk 5 miles to get dirty drinking water. However, as an American, it's my civil duty to strive for more!
So here I am. It's spring. Time for more f**king change. No more complacency. My needs are simple: a career that does not make me want to self harm, a healthy body and chocolate that has zero fat and calories but still tastes delicious. I know I can achieve the first two, and hopefully science is working on the last one.
