Didn’t get it done?

“When times were good, we didn’t get it done.  When we had mild recessions, we didn’t get it done.  When we were in peacetime, we did not get it done.  When we were at war, we didn’t get it done.   There is always a reason not to do it.   It strikes me that now is exactly the time to deal with this problem.”    

— President Barack Obama

He was referring to health care reform, but when I heard those words just uttered from the President’s mouth, he spoke directly to me about my own personal and professional goals. 

We have to always be aware of the fact that we are programmed to be adequate.  When our survival is at stake, we will stop at nothing to achive our goals.  But when we have food, clothing, shelter, companionship and other basic human needs met, we often get complacent to the point where we don’t “get it done.” 

If the greatest feeling in the world is feeling great about yourself, imagine how great it will feel when you “get it done!”   Whatever it is that you want to do, think about that feeling and use your imagination to make it clear and vivid.  

How great will you feel when you get it done? Go do it and find out for yourself.  As the President said, “Now is exactly the time to deal with this problem!”
