Start to be Great

“You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great”

Apparently, in the spring of 2017, I was one of the few people who did not utterly consume S-Town, a podcast  from Serial and This American Life, that was downloaded more than 40 million times in its first two months. It tells the story of John B. McLemore, resident of Woodstock, Alabama, a complex genius, clockmaker and tinkerer. When I finish the seventh and last episode, I was yearning for more… I was left with more questions than answers. The story was not wrapped up in a nice little bow where all the mysteries were solved. Instead, it left me thinking and wishing I could know more. It reminded me that life is not a series of pretty little bows, it’s tangled, sometimes gnarly and sometimes calm.  While we yearn for the calm, it is in the chaos that change happens, as i realized in this podcast.

Change: you’ve been talking about getting a new job for a year now, eating healthier, saving money… If you were able to achieve these goals – great… but if not, are you stopping to ask yourself why?  Goals can be lofty OR you can start smaller and build from there. This is a very digestible article from Nicolas Cole to give you some ideas to get changing:
