249: Ending Excuses – I’ll Start Tomorrow

Oct 27, 2016

Today is about ending excuses, especially that tried & true excuse of, “I’ll start tomorrow”.

Here’s the reality: it doesn’t matter how motivated you are, it doesn’t matter how great your plan is or how much you want it if you are in the habit of talking yourself into delay, deferral or excuses.

Instead of focusing on what to eat, when to eat or the latest, greatest diet, I encourage you to look at the ways you talk yourself into not doing the work, and focus on overcoming those limitations.

We’re doing that together in today’s episode. Don’t miss it!

Ending Excuses: “I’ll Start Tomorrow”

Yes, tomorrow exists. However, it has nothing to do with what you can do today.

When we put off our plans, when we defer our goals to tomorrow, it’s just a way of making ourselves feel better about not doing the work.

We don’t want to say “I’m not going to eat healthy” so instead we say “I’ll do it tomorrow”.

What you can do tomorrow doesn’t have anything to do with what you can & should do today.

When you defer the work until tomorrow, you reinforce a pattern of delay.

The more you use that excuse, the more likely you are to continue to use it.

Become increasingly aware of when you’re avoiding taking action.

Replace thoughts of what you pledge to do tomorrow with reminders of what you’re capable of now.

Tell yourself, “I’m a person of today. Right in front of  me is an opportunity to make progress and I won’t pass it up.”

Do not delay until tomorrow what can be done today.

Nothing will ever be attempted
if all possible objections must first be overcome.”

— Samuel Johnson

If you look for an objection or reason to delay, there will always be one.

Stop searching for excuses and start looking for opportunities to act.
