Many of us taught our children how to commit to whatever their goals were. I guess we are a "do as I say and not what I do" society because now someone has to hold our hands and guide us through motivation and commitment.

    I'm beginning to think that I find dwelling on motivation, one way, or the other:

    * macabre
    * counterproductive
    * consuming of time that would be better spent: doing, planning, tracking, and discovering the "how of"

    Q: What's wrong with my statement above?
    A: It appears to be critical of you, and essentially my critique of you is that the motivation searching typically results in a strong "residue" of self-criticism.

    So, net, I'm saying, UNEQUIVOCALLY:

    * You're progressing.
    * You're getting closer to your goals.
    * You're refining your process for furthering and achieving your goals
    [* Clearly, I'm not as smart as I would like to be! emoticon ]

    Enjoy your success. Keep rollin'! emoticon

    I think we need to cut ourselves a little slack. Our children don't have the amount of work to do that we do. I'm motivated but have a lot on my plate.

    So true but we can also learn as we go thru life.

    Sad, isn't it?! It's just so much easier to tell others how to do something than it is to do it ourselves especially with diet and exercise when it's so easy to just go along with others' wants. (Diet is NOT a dirty word, it is defined as whatever you eat be it good or bad for you.)

    We never get to old to learn and relearn old is always a process of mastering the basic lessons in like
