Biting Off More than You Can Chew: A Retrospective

Biting Off More than You Can Chew:

A Retrospective




Change.

Change can be needed and invigorating.

Change can be cheerless and exhausting.

It doesn’t matter your personal preferences about change… Change happens.

Sometimes it happens fast. Sometimes slow, But change is an always a constant.

SO HOW CAN CHANGE BE ASSIMILATED MORE EASILY?

It can help as you are planning the necessities of change for you to remember these two postulates:

Just like in the game of Mother May I, baby steps are easier to accommodate than big leaps. Leaps usually have consequences, whereas baby steps- slow, methodical, and directed- will get you to your target.

Never bite off more than you can chew. Sure, you might be able to get the job done… but it will be messy!

Broken Goals



How many excuses can you name to not exercise?

  • It’s too hot…
  • It’s too cold.
  • I’ve had a rather busy day…
  • Such a cloudy day; I think it will just depress me.
  • Both of the kids are home this evening
  • I think it might rain.
  • Stupid alarm! OK, right after work… After supper…
  • What’s skipping one day…? I deserve a break. Tomorrow will be a better day.
  • I’m just not a morning person.
  • Sorry, once it’s after 5pm… I’ll never be able to go to sleep.
  • It just doesn’t seem to work for me. It only makes me want to eat more!

Famous People



People seem to go out-of-their-way for their fifteen-minutes in the spotlight.

YouTube seems to have allowed everyone their own personal spotlight.

The grand-finale last-second basket shots or the incredible last minute spin-kick-scoring soccer points… I enjoy.

The Reality-TV superheroes… not so much.

I really don’t know which is the worse: the people who star in shows like How I Fell in Love with My Parakeet and Divorcees- The Fifteenth Time Is the Charm or the people who are glued to their television sets or mobiles and watch the trash.

A Small Celebration



“I am sure it is a little premature to celebrate a grand book deal for my first novel, but maybe a small celebration is in order.

I do know who my main character throughout the story is now going to be.

I’m sure the rest will be easy-peasy.” said the first-time novelist who knew next to nothing at all about completing a novel or publishing one.

But he did enjoy a good celebration!
