Jim likes to tell people “Stop shoulding all over yourself!” Shoulding is unproductive and creates misery. Shoulding keeps you from doing what you really want to do.
It’s not easy to eliminate it from your vocabulary. We’re conditioned to take on obligations that “should” lead to happiness (I should go to school. . . should make lots of money. . . should start a family. . . should buy a house). Meanwhile, all this shoulding all over ourselves creates huge demands on our time, and brings our youthful dreams to a screeching halt. Then one day we wake up and realize we are trapped in the “Someday Syndrome.”
We can all use some help finding our way back to our dreams, and Alex Fayle’s new book, “Someday I’ll Get Around To It” is the perfect place to start.
Alex is a “Someday-busting Coach.” He helps people dust off their dreams, sort them out, and create a plan for obtaining the life they really want. His new e-book, “Someday I’ll Get Around To It” shares his strategies for someday-busting.
In this 100-page workbook style format, we learn how to make conscious choices to create happier lives that more closely reflect our dreams. Alex walks us through ways to overcome inertia and understand our limitations and obstacles. We learn how letting go of control will free up time and enable us to achieve our goals. And finally, his useful worksheets in the back of the book will help us draft simple, doable plans to help achieve our dreams in step-by-step increments.
Life is short. Live your dreams. And remember, you can’t justify putting your dreams on hold, by listing all of your obligations.
Because like Alex says, “In not pursuing your dreams, recognize that you are choosing not to pursue your dreams.”
If you are at all doubtful that Alex can help, just read about his life here. You can also read his interview with Jim and I.
Don’t wait for Someday.
Sell your crap. Pay off your debt. Do what you love.
