The above quote is my contribution, to like, humanity. (Hey, I mean, I’m just 26, cut me some slack haha). I feel like the best books in success literature are just the ones that give you that one main idea expressed so succinctly that you just go “Yeah; holy shit that makes a lot of sense.” And for some reason, even though you hear something you already KNEW, just worded perfectly, you finally take action on it.
I remember having a spirited conversation with my friend Patrick in NYC about “girls”, and I just recall hearing him say so many things that just made my head thing “This guy is NEVER going to do anything about this.”
“Well I once I do … things will be OK.”
“Starting sometime soon I’m going to start doing …”
“If only …”
“I want to learn more about … first.”
These are all fucked in that they:
(i) live in some imagined future when laziness somehow just disappears
(ii) don’t really involve taking action in the real world
I don’t really remember MUCH about this conversation, but I definitely remember the frustration I felt hearing my friend talk about what he wanted, knowing that he wasn’t going to be getting it anytime soon. I see this kind of shit a lot. And frankly, the reason it pisses me off so much is that I used to do it so much…and I still do it…just seemingly less so than before.
Anyway, I do remember telling my buddy Patrick this:
“To get extreme, you gotta go extreme.”
And, well, its time to shine the light upon myself. Get on what I’ve been putting off. Time for some extreme fat loss. Shall we?
(FYI all this heroic self-righteous bullcrap is the HOT-ROX talking, not me, K?)
