Until this morning I didn’t realize how much of my life I spend in “but”….”I’d love to get into better shape, but I’m busy”, “I’m  excited about my new keynote, but now that I’m back at school…” and “I’d love to travel more, but I’ve got kids and responsibilities”.

The list goes on and on and on and on and on.

I was challenged this morning by my good friend Claude to replace the word “but” with the word “and”. Suddenly everything changes. “I’d love to get into better shape and I’m really busy”, “I’m really excited about the new keynote and now that I’m back teaching…”

The words are small, the difference is huge and already I’m seeing a LOT more possibilities. I’m changing my vocabulary and getting rid of but, I’ll keep you posted.
