To me, it's simple. Either you are or you aren't.
You are A) Going to do it or, B) Not going to do it.
And whatever that thing is, commit to it. There are times when multi-tasking is necessary. But if you say you’re going to do something, do it. It’s just that easy.
Say, you want to join a group. Singing, dancing, sports, Chess Club, whatever. Do it and follow through. Don’t be that punk that sits in the front row with their feet up acting like a badass, like you’re too good for it. Because 99% of the time, you’re not.
Is this a little dramatic to be relating to the Chess Club? Possibly. But everything translates. Do you think that somebody is going to hold your hand all the way through life? Reminding you that you need to sign this paper work, or call this person, or be a good parent? No. There won’t be.
Because it’s all relative.
And if you are somebody that’s like this, don’t complain when suddenly nobody wants to put up with your bullshit. Because you know what? You brought it on your damn self. And you have nobody to blame but that person staring back at you in the mirror.
