It’s not ALL or NOTHING

You know I hear sometimes??  “Welp, I ate donuts and pizza all day today so I might as quit and eat unhealthy all the time from now on.”  Or “I cannot give 110% to my business, so I’m quitting.”  Or “I didn’t work out at all this week so I might as well stop working out forever.”  Would you give your kids up for adoption if they take up too much of your time?  NO!  That is not the answer!  I’m telling you!

Give less of the time you do have and keep doing what you can.  Maybe you can only give effort 20% of the time, fine…  Do 20%!  There is always something going on in life.  Right?  I mean moms are especially busy during certain times of the year with their kids activities (I’m WITH you…..my daughter is in volleyball and destination imagination and my other daughter is in Girl Scouts) or women have a busy season at work because it’s tax season and they are an accountant.  Can I get an AMEN!?

There is nothing more disappointing then when someone quits entirely.  When you quit, you end up feel bad about yourself, like a loser, like you can’t hack it at life.  Know what I mean?  Just pull back a little for a bit.  But don’t quit all together!

When you care about someone and they quit on ya, it hurts right?  It’s like they are saying “I don’t care about ME as much as YOU do.”

For me, I know that I really get a sense of satisfaction when I am doing right by myself and I am sure you feel the same way.  Instead of being dishonest with people by pulling the disappearing act and stop answering them or slowly ‘fade into the night’ in hopes that the other person will forget all about you just communicate.  Communication is the KEY!  And you can apply the 80/20 rule….  What have you applied the 80/20 rule on in your life?  Can you comment with an example?
