A Meditation on Life: Give Me a Reason

Experience teaches me again and again that the reason I fail to achieve a challenging goal or to break an unhealthy habit…

… is not that I am stupid or lazy.

… is not that I am untalented.

… is not that I am a quitter or a procrastinator.

… is not that I lack discipline or will power.

The real reason is that I lack something deeper, higher, and more fundamental: clarity of purpose.

That said, one of my tasks as a human being is to find something to care about… so much so that I am willing to suffer for it.
