Found this old daily attitude email, figured we could all use a reminder to be a little weird where it counts.
“Some are born weird, some achieve it, others have weirdness thrust upon them.” ― Dick Francis, To the Hilt
While on vacation I saw a woman running. She was running fast, had all the gear on, etc.
I thought to myself “she must be one of the weirdos that actually likes running.”
And then I thought “maybe I need to be a little more weird.”
And then I thought “maybe I could send out a daily attitude email about this.”
And then I thought “better make a note so I don’t forget.”
And then you thought “get on with it, you weirdo.”
Anyways, achieving something meaningful or breaking through our self-constructed barriers usually involves getting weird about something.
The person who ends up with a fortune first had to be the person who was a little weird about making and saving money.
The person who loses the weight and keeps it off first had to be the person who was a little weird about the food they ate and how it was prepared.
The person with all the great friendships first had to be the weirdo who talked to everybody and invited himself over.
We are all a little weird in our way.
But maybe we should consider adding to it. Adding a little weirdness where we need to make a change.
Make it a great day.
