A picture of something you wish you were better at."

Where do I start....

Yesterdays work - changing the old side door to my garage to a new - I really wish I was better at carpentering although I know that the problem with this is that I do not have the right workshop or the right tools...


I would like to be better at training dogs and horses... it´s a matter of practice of course.


I can read notes and I can play simple things but I like to be skilled...



...which takes me to the conclusion that what I really would want to be better at is self-discipline. Because all those things I would like to be better at, I would be better at if I had the self-discipline to hang in there and practise/do the things required to achieve my goals.

On the positive side I can say that I DO know how to do a lot of things, I do change that door, I am an acceptable rider and dog trainer, I can play some tunes on the piano, I do meditate and loose weight (too little but...) the thing I lack is consistency.

Thanks for reading

    That's did do all those things!!! Got to let go of that perfection thing! I lack consistency, too...sometimes I think it's just plain old not remembering! Maybe I need to make up a chart like I used to have for my kids chores when they were little. That's not a bad idea. But that's another thing about me, I enjoy the creating process of an idea, it's the carrying out where I have problems. So I would put lots of effort and thought into making this wonderful chart, and then would I carry through?

    But although we don;t have it "down" yet; we are better. Our self-discipline is improving!! We are still a WORK IN PROGRESS!
