It Can Only Get Better (I Hope)

I’m a fan of motivational books, and one of the mantras that appears in several such books is “Make today better than yesterday”, or put another way, “make tomorrow better than today”.

So today being New Year’s Day, I thought I would give it a shot.

To make it easy on myself, I did absolutely nothing today. I never left the house, never put on my shoes, and in fact, rarely left the couch.

So it shouldn’t be too hard to make tomorrow a better day.

My plan is to at least open the front door and look outside.

And the day after that, I may put one shoe on.

Baby steps…

  3. I agree with Beth. You may want to slow your roll young guy. Let’s start with thinking about doing something, before we start running around just doing stuff all willy nilly… This hit home as I don’t think I left the couch much yesterday either!

  4. You’re going to need to conserve your energy for when you try opening the front door: I’d advise not wasting it by picking up any more of those books – they’re written by charlatans!
