“I know exactly how to fix my life. I know one hundred and five percent exactly how to fix almost everything in my life. I know the answers. I know where to find the ones I don’t have. I have experience with many forms of therapy and more forms of woo-woo bullshit. I know what works in most cases. I know what is new-age (rhymes with sewage) garbage designed to separate you from your money in a moment of weakness or crisis. I know how I can turn it all around inside a year. Probably less.
I don’t do what works because it’s hard work. It’s exhausting work. It’s got the high potential for failure. It requires discipline and perhaps more energy than I can summon on a daily basis. It requires that I have the confidence, presence of mind and energy to pick myself up off the floor on a regular basis. It means getting up and doing even when it’s not imperative that I do so.
It means respecting the difference between Urgent and Important.”
