Experiment with your life

How many of us are living our best possible life?

I know I’m not.

I’m guessing you’re not, either.

And yet, most of us don’t want to change what we’re doing.

We’re lazy.  Unmotivated.

But if we don’t change anything, how are things going to improve?

You don’t have to change everything at once.

The changes you make don’t have to be permanent.

You don’t have to wait for a new year.  You can start today.

Find one thing that bothers you about your life.  How could it be better?

Change one thing about it to make it better.  Stick with the change for a month.

I’m trying to blog every day.  This is day eight.

At the end of the month, see if the change was good for you.  If so, it should be pretty easy to keep.  If not, try something else.

Don’t try to change a lot of things all at once.  It’s overwhelming.  You won’t be able to stick with it.

Some people can manage a handful of changes at once.  I wouldn’t recommend starting that way, though.  If one seems easy, maybe try two.

One small change at a time is very manageable.

Eventually you’ll get the results you want.

I’m intelligent

I could count to 20 when I was two years old.

I could read at a fifth grade level when I was in kindergarten.  At least that’s what my mom says my kindergarten teacher told her.

My senior year in high school I took AP Physics.  We did an experiment on projectile motion.

The experiment used a spring-loaded cannon which would launch a metal ball.  We were supposed to launch it through some hoops.  We had to calculate the right heights for the hoops.

I did the math for our team.  We finished first, and we were the only group to get it right the first time.

I could think of other examples, but I think those are sufficient.
