Breaking Out of the Rut

Breaking Out of the Rut from the book: Lists to Live By

1. ASSUME responsibility for your own life. Refuse to be either an excuser (rationalize failure) or an accuser (blame others). Instead be a chooser, and choose to break out of the rut you're in.

2. BELIEVE you can change! Stop saying "I can't" and start saying "I can."

3. CLARIFY what you really want. Write down specifically how you'd like to change.

4. DON'T WAIT for ideal circumstances. Stop saying "When things settle down,,," Do it now! One of these days" is really none of these days.
