Kind of talking to myself here, but bottom line . . . I SAY a lot of things but struggle to actually DO them all of the time . . .
My goal is to have a higher percentage of accomplishing DOing what I SAY I going to do . . .100% would be a good thing . . .but at least get the ratio up from the sorry result that I had been achieving . . .


that didn't last long . . .at my core I am still selfish and have a difficult time putting little things, that are really big things into action . . .

This morning watched a great video, one section about the addiction of cell phones and how they can destroy relationships . . . even mentioned to my wife how true the words were . . .then about four hours later show total disrespect to my wife by listening to a message on my cell phone while she is talking to me . . .what does that communicate to her . . .that she doesn't matter and is not important to me . . .what positive value does that line up with . . .none!!!

It communicates the same thing that watching porn did . . .to seeing prostitutes . . . on the surface nothing close to the same as looking at the phone, but in reality . . .the same when it comes to building relationship . . .so sad . . .I continue to need to focus, actually put into action the values that I SAY I have . . .
I need a much higher SAY/DO ratio!

Here is the link to the video I mentioned . . .although not a mention of sex . . . some real truths related to addiction and working toward recovery!

Then commit to following through on at least one thing to promise to do every day. Big, small, makes no difference. Just get into the habit of finishing what you start. It's not what you finish or follow through with, it's whether you follow through at all, so get into that habit and slowly increase your activity.
