Some of us have grown up with the Nike slogan in our head and often use it in conversations…but have you ever really thought about the saying?

This summer I am trying to accomplish many things – we are thinking about moving, I’d like to take some courses, our fall programs here at Good Learning Anywhere are just around the corner and there is a lot to get ready, as well as I’m trying to make it a fun summer for my kids and spend as much time with them as I can! Add on to those all those things we are supposed to do frequently to be “well-rounded” people – spend time with friend, exercise…who has time for it all! There are days it’s just overwhelming! I had a friend say to me yesterday that her and her family are looking at their priorities and what they want their lives to be about….this got me thinking – what is important and what should I be focusing on!

The end of summer brings on September – the time for a new school year and new beginnings. As it approaches, I challenge you to take a look at what you want your life to stand for and the things you would like to accomplish – do you want to go back to school? Join a club? Start a new project? Volunteer at you child’s school? Get a promotion? Make more time for you?

I came across this video the other day, and thought it hit home for me… stop making excuses as to why you can’t do the important things in life, and “Just do it”.
