“I’m going to write every day for at least 15 minutes.” The next time you look at the calendar, a week or two has passed.
“Those eager prospects are only 10 or 11 numbers away, or at least an e-mail away. I’ll get to them and 10 more this week.” Wow, those numbers and e-mail addresses seem to have gone the way of the pet rock.
“The new employee needs me to pay attention to her questions; I’ll be more available and accommodating.” But alas, you become bogged down in minutia and don’t really get to her.
What causes you/us to set up those intentions – write them down even – and yet not take action? Maybe we do get to a percentage of them, and yet, let the others fade away like fog.
Are you committed to personal and professional growth? I know I am, and yet…! It’s as if my fingers have anathema to the phone or Google. Why? I wish I knew the answers.
