It’s Labor Day!
I did what I do every day for six days a week: I arrived at my office at 6am and I will work until later this afternoon, possibly into the evening.
See My Office Complex Above?
Yes. That’s my car.
See how many other cars are there?
Get Ahead, Catch Up, or Never Fall Behind
The last thing I’d do is take off for Labor Day as I would for holydays.
Jayne and I got a major setback over the past couple of years due to health problems and my elderly Mother whom we had to come to Tulsa to stay with.
The health problems are far less severe than before. I’m in about 200% better health than I was for the past 15 years now. I had no idea that I was having brain fog and other issues. I do now. I was doing almost everything right in my eating for the past 15 years, but having shockingly little success. I now am at my college weight.
So why work on Labor Day?
I don’t celebrate Labor Unions. You shouldn’t either.
By being at my office six days a week, at 6am almost every morning, I am catching up to what the past years’ of problems slowed me down at. I’m not caught up. I had major goals for 2017 that appear as if it’ll be 2018 before I see the fruit of those plans.
But by working consistently when others don’t, I’m not falling farther behind.
By working consistently when others don’t, I’m going to reach my work goals sometime in 2018.
By working consistently when others don’t, once I reach my goals, I’m going to springboard past others with similar goals who have no work ethic and who do nothing proactively to learn if they can improve their health.
What are you doing today?
Does your place of work have only your car in the lot? Or does your place of work have somebody else’s car in the lot, somebody who is getting a consistent edge on you constantly?
