alert icon


I’ve been on the other side of the spectrum since the beginning of this article. I have the “alert icon” because I am now aware of how many things I could possibly be doing that I currently am not. In the past, I just kind of went through the motions. I never thought about all the things I could be doing that I don’t want to do. With awareness comes the realization that I could be doing a lot more than I have been.

The alert icon comes from our last article, but that was about people who are constantly doing things that they don’t want to do. I don’t really feel like I’m one of those people. But awareness is what I’m talking about. And I’m talking about it now because I’m on the verge of some major change.

When people start thinking about the changes that they want to make in their lives, they feel compelled to act. And they feel compelled to act because it’s what they feel they can do. But when you start thinking about the things that you just dont want to do, you start to regret what you have done, you start to have a hard time seeing how you have the energy to change your life.

Ok, this is a great example of why I think we need to be aware of our reactions. When I was a kid, I felt I was a total failure. I lived a life of constant unhappiness, constant struggle, and constant anxiety. I was constantly thinking about the things I didn’t do and how I could do better. One of the ways I could get a handle on myself was to start to focus on the things that I wanted to do.

Ok, so this is an example of the difference between a hard habit and an easy habit. A hard habit is one that is so ingrained that you have to get out of bed or do something every morning to remind yourself you need to do it. A hard habit takes you down a path of self-pity that becomes really difficult to change.

This is exactly what happened to me. I had this habit of not doing anything. I started to get so annoyed at myself for not doing things that I did start to think, “I should do this,” and then I did it. What I’m saying is, that when you have a hard habit you can choose to either consciously keep doing it or if you keep ignoring it, you start to think that you should be doing it.

You can’t just ignore the bad habits and be a good person. You need to be as aware of them as the rest of the world.

In the meantime, I have a suggestion: Try getting a new habit. For example, start to read more. That will help you with your problem of not doing things, and it might help you with your habit of not reading.

There is something new to be aware of in the wake of the recent news of a man in his 20s who has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The man is now being treated at the New York City Medical Center because the disease has progressed so much that he is unable to care for himself. He has to be in a care facility for the rest of his life. At this point, it is more likely than not that he will be in a nursing home.

Alzheimer’s is the 8th leading cause of death in America. So if this man becomes a resident of a nursing home and dies at age of 51, that’s a lot of years. If this man is the oldest person in the world, that’s a lot of years.
