A schmear, by yiddish definition, is a little bit of something tasty applied to something big and tasty. (a bagel with a schmear of cream cheese for example)
When you ask for a schmear of chopped liver on a pastrami sandwich at the 2nd Ave deli, they will translate that into about a quarter lb of some of the best stuff on earth on a sandwich the size of your head.
You won’t lose weight, but you may die with a smile on your face.
I’ve digressed before I’ve even begun…
Ok, here we go…
Imagine if I called you on Thursday morning and left a voicemail saying “Meet me in New York City on Monday” and then offered no further information.
Driving to Manhattan and wandering the streets in the hope that we would just find each other?
You wouldn’t even get in the car for that prospect.
The unanswered questions regarding time, location, and the reason for the meeting, really matter.
The absence of information not only creates a vacuum but feels pretty frustrating.
If I want to meet you in New York, I promise to get specific.
See where I’m going?
Oh the things you want to accomplish, acquire and change…
Oh the frustration of longing, wishing and hoping…
I get it…
The first step to getting what you want is about getting specific.
Telling yourself that you want to lose a “bunch” of weight is like saying “meet me in New York on Saturday”.
How many lbs do you want to lose in the next two weeks?
How many dollars do you want to be earning weekly in the next six months?
Why do you want to lose the weight?
What do you want the money for????
What will it be like if you don’t reach your goal?
What food must you eliminate to reach your goal and is it really worth it to you?
What one thing could you do in the next hour to get you closer to what you want?
Determining the details of what you actually want, why you want in and when, is a great place to start.
