That Itch

One of the rules of adulthood is that life doesn’t wait. Life only waits for you to take action.

We may call it luck, but people are successful because they’re prepared and they ride the wave of opportunity.

Of course, it helps that you can identify what you like doing so you focus on doing it every day. Love and labor move in parallel.

One way to identify what you enjoy doing is to identify your itch. For Michael Jordan, that itch was basketball. Basically, the itch is something you know you’d rather be doing when you’re not doing it. It’s the same feeling you get when you don’t brush your teeth.

What’s itching you? Maybe you should spend 5-10 minutes working on that today.
