For too many people, the true answer to why they are not winning is due to bad choices. Simply put – people choose not to win. Excuses are people choosing not to win.

I have decided that one of my daily POMODOROS will now be a squishy one. Simply put, of all the things I need to do each day, I will choose the most disgusting, rotten, smelly thing and just do it instead of pushing it over until tomorrow.
So take one thing. Choose a pomodoro worth of work. Stop waiting for a better time to do it and just get it done now.
My heart is saying I don’t understand or accept or desire it enough to do it now. My brain just needs to figure out why. Stop looking for another reason more complex than fearing the truth.

Actually I was going to entitle this post dealing with idiots/jerks, but then reconsidered 😉
Everyday, humankind is constantly challenged. Hatred is relearned. Violence spirals like hurricanes from the inside out. We talk […]
First competitions are coming up for the new archers. While I have been competing for decades and absolutely love the buzz …some newbies and some veterans alike are not so inclined.
One specific feeling word that pops up is anxiety. This is a real medical problem for some people when it leads to panic attacks, hyperventilation, and fainting (yes I have been first responder on archery fields with such incidents so be prepared).
