One Thing

"I'll post more," he said.  Takes him two weeks to post something, and it's not even smash related.  What a noob.

Anyhow, I felt like posting something I was thinking about that applies everywhere.  It's about self-improvement, learning, and achievement.  It goes according to a rather significant quote:

"Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't."  -- Jerry Rice

I'm a fan of the "one thing" methodology, which is pick a single isolated skill, technique, or habit, and ingrain it within yourself until it becomes your instinct.  Then pick something else, and repeat until you're done.  Don't try everything at once.

So here's your homework, readers.  Pick something today.  It can be in Smash or school or work or whatever, doesn't matter what.  Pick one thing, just ONE, that you don't normally do, or you think "I really ought to," and do it.  No excuses, no johns, it's just one thing.  You can manage it.  It's that one thing you CAN do, but don't.  Go do it.

And if you have to, be ready to do it again.  That's it.  You're identical to your old self except for this one thing, which you do a bit better.  Now, overall, YOU are a bit better.

Now do it again.



  1. Time doesn't expand for me yet, but I am definitely getting this type of vibe from all your blogs so you're definitely consistent. I respect the idea a lot.
