Don’t commit to an idea, commit to a tangible act you can check off of a list. Donald Miller.
This just struck me as pure genius. Instead of committing to losing 20 pounds, commit to exercise or less carbs - commit to an act not an idea.
How many places could be be invaluable? You have got to admit, we don't have the best track record in more than several areas of our lives. Diets alone have a 95% failure rate - imagine that drugs, smoking, gambling and a lot more less attractive issues, do too. Imagine if we re-thought the way we try to change (insert unwanted behavior here) and because we do what we have always done, the results are the same we have always gotten. Even more important, what if the we committed to the act of loving God, no matter what.
This fits just in line what I have been telling myself about exercise for the last week. Have been taking it day by day, just do today - will worry about tomorrow, well - tomorrow.
Sometimes, crazy good comes ways we never expected. I knew it when Miss M and I spent a few hours on Friday playing Uno, Cake Doodle and Barbie's. Never thought about it as a concept. Now that, is crazy good...
