It wasn’t unkind. It wasn’t malicious. It was a simple statement - “You’re not doing these things you said were important to you because you just don’t want to do them.”


You’re not doing the things on your to-do list because you don’t want to do them. It’s that simple.

It could be that the process of doing the thing is just hard.

Well, it might be. You might have to learn to like things that are hard.

We have trusted advisors who can call out our blind spots. And “blind spots” are called that because we can’t see them (even if they seem obvious to others).


Think about what you’ve had on your to-do list and what has and hasn’t gotten done. 

What you’ve done, you did to get accolades or approval from someone else or you’ve done them to make a difference to yourself.

And do follow through with being honest with yourself.

See you here next time.

Keep making your magic!
