Make A Plan



My head is filled with thoughts of things I ought to do or want to do, and yet it seem time passes week by week until another year has slipped away, and still I sit in my chair at night and ponder the things I'd like to do.  I ask myself when, when am I going to make the transition from thinking about doing it, and actually doing it... taking that first step, that first action.  Why do I let my mind freeze me into immobility?  Is it lack of energy or fear of failure?  I fear it is just much easier to sit here and ponder rather than to actually embrace a plan of action.  Yet I know that it's the first step that's the hardest, once I actually get going, the momentum builds.  I am not one for making resolutions, but I think that this coming year is the year that Josie must get off her butt and return to the land of the living, do some of those necessary chores and fun things that I've been putting off way too long. Time to just go for it... make a plan and do it.  I think I can, I think I can... I can!

  1. I am in the exact same boat, and have been for a while. I am in the same frame of mind - should I keep contemplating or get up off the keister and do something??? Right there with ya!!!

    1. I am tired of all the excuses I make for my failure to effect changes in my life, so I've decided to hold myself accountable in 2016 and "just do it"!

  2. Break it down into steps you can handle, and there's nothing you can't do!

    1. You are right, Mimi! In the past I've identified concepts... "I want to's". This year I am going to identify steps... "I'm going to's"!!

  3. I so know what you are saying and feeling. There are things I want to do and a few that need to be done. I love the planning and dreaming part...not so much the doing. Last year was weight loss this year is keeping it off and exercise. I went for a walk today, a short one. Of course, I thought about it for a good while before I actually did it. As for you...whatever it is on your mind,I know
    you can! 2016 will be a year of doing. Thank you for linking to In Other Words.

    1. Planning definitely comes easier than actually implementing the plan. You did great with follow through on losing weight, and I hope to follow that lead with making some of my plans become realities I can feel good about. I know from past experiences that maintaining a goal once reached is the hardest part by far, you taking a walk today says that you are committed to the lifestyle change. This going to be the year for me to become a doer! :-)
