"Opprotunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work" ~ Thomas Edison
I've been having issues with an extremly lazy co-worker (or two) and was in search of a quote to post on our white board to give a 'hint'. As I was writing it down, it hit me... This applies to aspects of my own life, and actions. I work very hard at work, go above and beyond, and do more then I should for the good of the company and to keep our customer's happy. I hate the laziness of my coworkers and the lack or work ethic in people that have had their life handed to them on a platter and never actually earned anything in their lives. It makes me furious.
So, in the process of writing the above quote in bright blue marker on a large white board next to my desk for all to see it hit me. I'm missing opprotunties to be healthy, thin, and just plain feel good because it looks like such hard work. I eat healthy for the most part, however give in to the office doughnut here and there because it's to difficult to just say no. I exercise, but not as hard or as often as I should because, honestly, part of it is lazyness. Flat out. I can almost always think of something else I need to do, or somewhere to go that is 'more important'. I have time to do it. Really. I could get up an hour earlier like I used to, but "I'm to tired", "I didn't hear my alarm"... It's always something. My great work ethic that I pride myself on needs to be carried over to my health. I think I need to make losing weight a 'JOB/Project' I need to have done and put my hard work forth at something outside the office.
This is my new motto, and I'm posting it everywhere I can to remind myself that I can't let this opprotunity pass me by again. This could be my last chance.
