5 lizards are on the ceiling. 3 of them decided to jump on a person passing by. How many lizards are left on the ceiling?
Answer: 5. Deciding to do something isn’t the same as taking action.
“I’ve decided to quit my job.”
“I’ve decided to start a business.”
“I’ve decided to stop this bad relationship.”
“I’ve decided to exercise and eat better.”
“I’ve decided to be less angry.”
It’s easy to declare those things. Much harder to follow through and actually do it.
Making a decision is nice. But execution is where life happens.
PS: I hate lizards. I hope none will ever jump on me or you.
