Check out this interesting book (available for free as an e-book) by Rick Butts: The Big Butts of Life: Get Off Your Excuses and Do Big Things. It’s practical and motivating—and an easy 85-page read. http://www.rickbutts.com/free/BBOL.pdf
If you read it and want to commit to his recommendations, let me know. I’d like to connect with people who are ready to move beyond excuses, to create structure strategy and support for setting and reaching goals.
