Boring Rats on a Boring Treadmill

Everyone wants more out of life.

Everyone falls into habits in life; many of those habits are bad ones.

We get used to a certain way of doing things and usually don’t have much “free time” to improve beyond our current conditions.

We want more things, but we just can’t find the time to take the actions necessary to get those things.

We are rats on a treadmill.  We keep running, but don’t get anywhere.  When we are done running for the day we rest.

The only way to stop running on the treadmill is to break the darn treadmill.

We don’t think we have time to do anything but run on the treadmill and then rest, but if we don’t find time to destroy the treadmill we will always have to run on the treadmill.

What we must realize is that one part of the illusion is that there is time to work on destroying the treadmill.  There is time, because THERE HAS TO BE TIME.

You must find and make the time to destroy the treadmill.

This might mean less time for television.  This might mean using your lunch hour to go to the gym or to research, plan or implement business ideas.  This might mean spending time late at night or on weekends working out, building income sources, going out to meet new friends or business prospects when you are tired.

There is time and there is energy for these things because WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE?

Either you break old habits, take action when you are tired, sacrifice things that don’t take you to your goals….

or

You stay stuck on the treadmill.

The good news is that as you build momentum with your actions it gets easier.  The actions feel less tiring.  You don’t miss your TV time as much as you thought you might.  You may even start to enjoy the feeling of progress.

Not taking action to destroy the treadmills of your life means you are choosing to stay stuck on them.

The treadmill might be your job.  It might be your habits of eating.  It might be your lack of an exercise plan.  Your treadmill might be watching television on the weekends instead of socializing.

Whatever your treadmill is, the results are the same: NOTHING NEW, NO PROGRESS, NO CHANGE.

Identify what you want.  Find ways to get closer to it; even just a little bit closer.  Claw, bite and scratch with your little rat paws and teeth for every extra moment and action that you can take to destroy the treadmills in your life.

One you destroy the treadmills you will be free.

Don’t rest too long though: Life always has newer treadmills for you to destroy.

Keep clawing…

All the best,

D

    Good article, I find most people have no idea how to organize their time. If there is something you really want to do in the day, you can almost always manage to do it.

    Where there is a will, there is a way!
