FLASHBACK ARTICLE FROM MAY 2010
So, I’m on deadline for this month’s article, and I don’t know what to write. John Young sent me an email asking if I’ve got one prepared. “No, I’ve been sick and I’m backed up with work….blahblahblahblah….” You get the idea. So I ask if I could slide for a month. John wrote back and said that would be ok. I felt guilty and told him I didn’t know what to write. I asked for his help on a topic.
That topic is in the heading of this column.
I had to laugh when I read it. I’m not sure if he meant that as a dig to me, or if he was interested in what I had to say on the subject, but whatever the reason, it made sense.
When it comes time to do something that you may find difficult, start putting one foot in front of the other and GET GOING. No big deal. Just do it.
Your attitude determines your success. Your frame of mind will dictate your outlook on your world. Here I felt tired and listless because I was OVERWHELMED with stuff to do. Kind of funny how that works. I tried to “eat the elephant” with just one bite. Can’t be done. John knew that. So, he did what any great motivator would do: He allowed me to come up with the drive I needed to sit down and write this column.
I feel a little ashamed that it happened. John just keeps getting it done and publishing his DJ newspaper each month and he relies on us to bring you interesting content. So he did what any great motivator would do, he didn’t tell me what to do, and he even offered me a way OUT of doing my work. But these simple words, “The Show Must Go On” propelled me into action and I’m glad they did.
Now it’s your turn to make the “Show Go On”! What do you do when you are unmotivated? What causes that? Is it laziness? My guess is yes. I protect my downtime because I tend to do too much in a short amount of time. I also think the damn cold I caught last week kicked my butt for 2 days and hung around for another 7. So, here I am baring my soul to you hoping you won’t fall victim to the same malaise. Do it. Take the extra step. Get up. Do SOMETHING…..work, have fun, plan. As they say in the song “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life” by Monty Python:
Some things in life are bad
They can make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle
Don’t grumble, give a whistle
And this’ll help things turn out for the best…
And…always look on the bright side of life…
Always look on the light side of life…
I also read the story of a beautiful young woman dying of cystic fibrosis. The title of her blog is “65redroses” because that’s what she called it as a little girl. Well, I spent lots of time on her blog reading about her impending death. Here is the address: http://65redroses.livejournal.com/ This was the most difficult part for me:
Our beautiful girl died this morning at 9:30. She is at peace.
Read. Absorb. Open your heart. Learn that what we are dealing with is MINOR and the way he handle the little things can make us look like spoiled brats. I felt that way. Amazing what some inspiration will do for your outlook.
So, there you are. Thanks John for the incentive and more importantly, the kick in the pants to get me going. I hope this column will help motivate you to greater things and that the really painful things in life you are dealing with will somehow seem smaller and more manageable.
