What Did You Sign Up For?

November 23, 2014 in Jim's Journal

I was talking to a friend, who I hadn’t seen for quite some time, recently.  You know, it was one of those conversations where you catch up on ten years in ten minutes.  During our conversation she used one of those words/phrases that always gets an immediate knee-jerk reaction from me.  It’s in the same family with “trying,” “interesting,” and “can do it.”  When I asked her how things were going she said, “Hanging in there.”  Knowing me and the way I think, what do you think I said next?  You’re right!  I launched into Mr. Energy.  “When did you sign up for ‘hanging in there?’”  “That’s like saying, ‘I’m ok,’ ‘I’m going through the motions,’ ‘I’m a work in progress,’ or ‘I’m just going through the motions.’”  None of those phrases suggest action.  Yes, they’re all excuses for inactivity.  What have you signed up for recently?  What excuses are you making for staying stuck?  Oh, let me guess.  It’s out of your control.  Really?  Remember, you’ll always get, what you’ve always gotten, until you become the person you’ve never been.  Perhaps it’s time to find a new sign-up sheet.
