Over the last few years, I’ve put on a few extra pounds that I’d like to lose. Despite my best efforts at exercising like a lunatic, I’ve learned that I cannot “outrun a Twinkie”.
So I spent the last several months reading about different diet & exercise plans. I’ve read about Paleo, Primal, Keto and Vegan. I’ve wasted far too much time reading blogs about diet and exercise.
About 3 weeks ago, I finally did what needed to be done – I stopped snacking on half a jar of peanut butter and chocolate several times a week.
It probably surprises nobody that I started losing weight.
Most of the time, we already know what needs to be done. We just don’t want to do it.
Luckily, I’ve found a solution to this dilemma. Just do the one thing you least want to do right now.*
It will also be a relief. Once you take the action, you can stop thinking about it and worrying about it. Instead, you’ll be dealing with it.
Taking action is something I recommend doing if you find yourself obsessing about a problem but getting nowhere.
*Hopefully, calling Inside Sales Dude isn’t the thing you least want to do, just something you’ve been postponing.
