Doing the Work

Advice about growing up and about staying out of trouble…for starters, growing up isn’t easy and it’s something that continually happens, regardless of whether or not we want it to happen. Life really isn’t a walk in the park, it’s a series of events that progressively move you forward based on the decisions you make. Think about it this way, life is fairly predictable in that for the most part, if you want something, it’s typically pretty easy to figure out how to get there or get something. The harder part is actually doing the work that goes into arriving at that point or acquiring that thing. So the first thing you really need to do is figure out what you want. Forget about trying to figure out how to stay out of trouble and think about what you want. Do you want good grades, study hard…do you want to get good at something, practice…you get the idea. I think far too often, folks try so hard to stay out of trouble that they still get into trouble when all that needs to happen is changing the focus. Hope this helps.
