This May Be A Mistake

Have I not been pretty good at keeping the topics here at Lane 8 about Health, Motivation and Impossible Goals?

It feels like it, and therefore, I’m taking editorial license to post about something that has to do with all three, but perhaps in a way you’re not expecting.

I’ve had the link for some time and have not found the right time to share it. One of the privileges that a serious blogger gets is to say something particularly personal.

There are many incurable diseases. And all of us have been impacted directly and indirectly, by them.

Crohn’s disease has no cure.


It is an Impossible Goal to help raise enough money, to give away, to those who can find the cure.

As a parent, it’s ultimately going to become a full-time job.

For now, this humble and thankful parent, just wanted to open the door a little bit wider.

Will you change the way you think about diet and exercise?

Or will you give up, like you always do?

Hey, you’re an adult.  You get this. I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know.

Don’t do it.

Don’t cave.

Don’t give up.

You can do it.

Be smarter. Think differently. Act differently. Don’t do it all in one month.

You have the rest of your life, but only if you get started and never quit.

One day at a time.

Start small and simple.  Think long-term. Dust off your indomitable will. Never quit.

When you die, then you can relax.  You good with that?

Ready to Fight?

Are you ready to fight for your life?

Then, and only then, will you start to see the changes you’ve always dreamed of.

May I introduce your opponent?

It’s you.  You are the challenge. You are the problem. You are the opportunity.

It’s time to kick your own butt.  Seriously, it is.

If not you, who?  if not now, when?

Ps.  I’m dead serious about this.

“You talkin’ to me?”

“Yeah. I’m talkin’ to you.”

It’s a funny observation, human behavior. Always has been, hasn’t it?

Ever go to the park, to center city, to the mall, or just about any public place, and “people watch“?

This time of year there is an annual lying match to see who can tell the biggest lies. Crazy thing though, no one knows about it. And those that do know, could care less about the prize.

Why? Because there is no prize.

No prize for lying that is.

But there is a prize. It’s for resolve. And for creativity. For, indomitable will.

And when we stop lying and start the battle of our lives, then the prize will take care of itself.
