Hamster Wheel

I feel like I am on a hamster wheel. I wake up long before the sun six days a week. I go to the gym some of those days, but not enough. I come home in the evenings, tired from the day’s activities. I want nothing more than to eat dinner and go to sleep, but I know that if I sleep too early, I will wake up too early and be more tired the next day. I end up going to bed late and not sleeping enough most days.

There are so many things I want to do, but indecision prevents me from taking the first step. It is time to put my foot down and take that first step. Remove myself from the hamster wheel and live the epic life that I was meant to live.

I have been thinking this for some time, but what should I do? Take it as it comes. Every day after work, do something. Go for a walk, even if I went to the gym already. Work on the novel. Write on the blog. Write a short story or a poem. Any kind of activity will do. It doesn’t have to be complete.

A goal cannot be achieved if no progress is made and it is not actively pursued. Ask myself “what did I do today to get me closer to my goal?” Being too tired is an excuse. I have gone to work plenty of times being tired. I know what I want and I know what I have to do to get it. Why am I not doing it?

Jump off of the hamster wheel that is going nowhere and start running toward those goals. I need to make a daily schedule for myself. I have done this in the past to great success. Come up with a formula and stick with it.

Keep on keeping on
