This week it has become even more clear how important it is to create the habit of doing what we say we are going to do. The Service Card is really hitting home, coupled with lesson 4 about not starting something or saying we are going to do something and then not actually doing it.
- Unless you do this, you had better not start at all, because modern psychology tells us that when we start something and do not complete it, or make a resolution and do not keep it, we are forming the habit of failure; absolute, ignominious failure. If you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; if you do start, see it through even if the heavens fall; if you make up your mind to do something, do it; let nothing, no one, interfere; the “I” in you has determined, the thing is settled; the die is cast, there is no longer any argument.
I am doing some rewriting, and thinking about what I have written, did I really intend on doing it, or was I just writing it to be writing it? Thinking again about what I really want.
It has been an interesting week.
I always keep my promises
