A couple of days ago I was at IHOP trying to pack on some pounds prior to Saturday’s weigh-in for the 90-day fitness challenge. The guy sitting in the booth across from me was on his phone.
(I know, I know…you’re probably like me, when you see folks on a phone in a restaurant you want to go grab the phone, walk into the kitchen in the back and drop it into the deep fryer….you don’t think that? Is it just me?)
Anyway, whoever he was talking to was evidently giving him a spanking because the side of the conversation I—and everyone else in the restaurant—heard was, “I should have stayed on top of it. I should have stayed on top of it. I should have stayed on top of it.”
Something had gone off the rails and this guy was at the bend over and grab your ankles stage.
Look around in your life right now and ask yourself this question: What should I stay on top of?
If you have more than three things you’re trying to stay on top of I can tell you unequivocally that you are not doing a good job of handling any of them.
So, what are you on top of? And, in which areas do you feel like Mr. I’m Sorry! at IHOP?
Have a great weekend! See you Monday.
