“A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.” —John Burroughs
. . . .
I’ve been drinking a lot of Starbucks lately. I know I need to go easy on this habit, and I realize I’m not going to quit it cold turkey. So, it’s all about finding a happy balance. Usually, I try to make a rule of thumb.
Starbucks. Only on the weekends.
But lately, with guests coming from out-of-town and me being on the road quite often lately., it’s hard for me to resist the Starbucks habit. And I know this all goes back to when I was touring on the road with bands.
But, at this point, I’m going to make a stand and say to myself, “no more Starbucks until the weekend”.
But on top of that, it’s really hard for me to eat “ideally” when I’m on the road. Very hard.
So, I now have a couple of days where I can get back on track. No excuses.
