Sometime I get caught up in plans, planning, longing, and yearning for what I want to be, who I want to be, and who I know I am meant to be. I’m a great planner. I make lists. I write appointments to exercise in my calendar. I buy groceries with every intent of eating right. I sign up for races I don’t complete. I sign up for classes I don’t finish. But somehow the best laid plans end up being nothing more than big sticks to beat myself with.
Does anyone else do that? Am I alone?
Why isn’t it as simple as determining “this” is who I want to be/how I want to act/the best way to live my life in order to accomplish my purpose and then putting it into practice? Why must I get mired down in all this other crap? Do I expect more than is realistic and that is why I am thwarted? Am I just lazy?
How to move from being a planner to a doer? Any insights?
