Do The Things You Used To Talk About...

Over the next several weeks I'm going to be dissecting a poem that has had an impact on my life.

It's not a long poem, and it's not that in-depth or hard to understand, but the points it brings up will change your life if you choose to apply them.

So, I know you're thinking to your self come on... enough build-up let's get to it.

One last thing I want to mention, I'm going to be breaking it down line by line and discussing what each line means to me, so that's why this will be a multi-week post that will all come together at the end.

Okay, here we go.

Here is the fist line...

"Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did."

Can you remember when you were younger and you'd dream and daydream about doing all of these different things in life?

When you used to think about things that you didn't know if you had time or money to do but when you thought about them they brought a smile to your face?

Or those things you used to talk about with other people and when you'd talk about them, people would always tell you...  "You can't do that" or "Are you serious... You would never be able to do something like that."

Yeah, those things.

Those are the things I'm talking about right now.

What do you think would happen if you took a little bit of time over the next couple of days and just made a list of all those things you used to talk about doing.

What if you took a little bit of extra time and ranked them from the one you wanted to do the very most to the one you just would like to do.

What if you put that list someplace where you could see it every day and read it.

What if you stopped listening to all of the people who told you that you couldn't do it and made a decision that you were going to do the thing at the top of your list in the next three months.

What if you decided to take baby steps towards doing that first thing on your list every day until you did it.

What if you didn't think about the money that it will take to do that first thing on your list and just knew that by the time you're ready to do that first thing on your list that the money will be there.

What if you realized that all of your hard work and the money you have and will have, is supposed to be used so that you can enjoy life and actually "live" your life instead of just grinding through it with nothing to look forward to.

What if you realized you don't have to be 65 before you can start doing fun things in life.

Let me let you in on a little secret my friends...

You can stop with all of the "What ifs..." and just start Taking Action.

I know I know why am I saying all of this crazy talk to you?

Because you know what... I'm tired of seeing all of these people who are like zombies in life and they are just living this life, but they aren't really living this life.

If we were meant to just grind out a 9 to 5 job each and every day for the rest of our lives we would be a machine and have zero brains or free will.


Guess what people... We aren't machines, we do have a brain, and we do have free will. 

So you know what... Quit making excuses and make a decision right here and now to "Take Action" towards that first thing on your list and let's get started living our lives.


If you want you can always just be a mindless, non-living, robot POS who just is walking around waiting to die.

The choice is yours.

If you choose to start "Taking Action" then leave me a comment below and tell me what's at the top of your list.

I'd love to know what you're going to make happen this year.
