Time to grow some balls

when i was back in school, i always used to marvel at people who talked about how busy they were. i can remember scoffing at people who didn't have time to go get a beer (or fifteen) because they needed to study/eat/sleep/read. i realized the other day that i've become one of those people. i lament about how packed my schedule is. i struggle to fit workouts into my day. i question why i have a pile of books seven deep ready to be read. i wonder where my time goes on a nightly basis. the result? i feel unfulfilled, lazy, ineffective, unmotivated, and progressively heftier. time to turn that back on its head. morning workouts start back up tomorrow. i'm going to plan my time on a several-day basis to make room for the things i want and accomplish the goals i have. less "i'm just so busy" and more "what's next?" the theme? more investment: + invest physically: re-dedicate myself to working out extensively. i feel more productive and energetic when i've pushed myself physically. tangible goal: get back to 35 miles a week. get this running done in the morning at least three times a week. + invest mentally: read more and think more. i need to spend more time reading great writers and reading great thinkers. i also need to spend more time writing. tangible goal: read at least one book every two weeks. write in this blog about *something* at least three times a week. + invest financially: my finances are in order but i'm not satisfied by what they're doing for me. tangible goal: spend two hours every week making sure i'm on track financially. get in 6+ hours of table time every week :). + invest personally: actively spend more consistent time with people that i value on a personally. i have great friends. tangible goal: see friends more. time to get after it.

we'll both take one step at a time. :) seek out the life you want, it won't be handed over to you. i'm learning that the hard way.
