Integrity

Dear Will,

It’s time for you to start having some Integrity; with yourself.

There are so many things you say you’re going to do to become the man you want to be and have the life you want to live. Why not demand of yourself the same integrity you demand from others to do what they say they’re going to do?

You are a textbook Planner, Will; you know this about yourself. You’ve planned your whole year—how many episodes you want to write; how much body fat (percentage-wise) you want to lose; how much money you want to save; how many blog entries you want to post; and how many dates you want to go on. Per quarter! You plan all day and all night. Sometimes, you bug me with how much planning you do; it gets a bit ridiculous.

Don’t get me wrong, man; there’s nothing wrong with planning things out. Most people wish they were as organized as you. But, Will, dear…your incessant planning has blossomed into a garden of Procrastination. When you have planned your work, and the time comes for you to work your plan, you drop all kinds of excuses, or succumb to laziness, and look for other things to plan out; just to remain comfortable. It’s stupid and counterproductive.

Now, 2016 was really good to you. It set you up quite nicely for a powerful and successful 2017. And, in your defense, you have done some great work so far this year on writing your show and honing your culinary skills. Seriously; Bravo! But it is time for you to step it up in the other areas of your life you so excitedly planned out in February.

Remember, all the things you’ve planned out, working together, will make you the man you wish to be. But none of it will work if you don’t have integrity with your plan. So get to it!

I Love You! You Got This!

Will :)
