…then “STOP IT!”
This is not something new to me, but it’s something that just hit me in the face, yet again.
I’m doing something that really isn’t helping me get where I want to go in life right now. So I need to stop it. And I am!
What am I doing? I’m reading a book.
A book that I think is actually written fairly well. It’s about zombies. And I like zombies. And the world war that was caused by the zombie plague that struck the earth.
The book is World War Z. I got it from the library yesterday and I’m already 120 pages into it (which is completely shocking if you understand my turtle pace reading speed)! I like the way it’s written like it’s an interview of eye witness accounts. I find the descriptions very interesting and cool, if somewhat disturbing (I mean come on! we’re talking about zombies here!).
And I have about 66% of the book to finish.
And I’m not going to.
I’m taking it back to the library either later today or tomorrow.
Why, you might ask? Because it’s not helping me right now. I’m enjoying the book, but when I read I really chew through the topic I’m reading. I play it over and over in my mind. I try to see it from different angles.
And doing this with basically an apocalyptic zombie war is just making me have a bleak outlook. I find that I’m more “down” today than I was yesterday or the day before, and the big difference is the book I’m reading.
So I’m done with it. I don’t need help in getting “down”, I need help in getting “up”! I need inspiration, encouragement, and motivation!
So I’m done with this book for now (although I might read later and I will see the movie when it comes out).
There are other things I’m doing in life right now that aren’t helping get where I want to go. I’ll be addressing them in the near future, but not here, today.
Today, I want to know what are you doing that’s not helping you get where you want to go? What do you need to stop doing because it’s actually taking you away from your desired destination?
Because I believe we all do things that hamper our progress from time to time and it takes us mentally stepping back and assessing the situation to realize it. Take the time today. Step back. See if you’re hampering your progress in any way. And if so, focus on eliminating just one of those speed bumps from your life.
Then jump in the comments and let the discussion begin!
