Answering reader mail – part 1

Dear thesethingsIamthinkingabout,
I want to lose weight, go back to school, learn a new language, and change my life. But I just CAN’T figure out how to get started.  What do you suggest?

Hey Lou, thanks for the question.  I get this question all the time.  I would start by googling each thing you want to do, and see what comes up.  Maybe other people have already done it, and can give some guidance.  There could be articles or videos or animated videos detailing exactly how to do each of those things, and they might chronicle some of the pitfalls to watch out for along the way.  I’ve used the internet in this way for tons of things, and have had really powerful results.

Sorry I can’t give much more specific advice than that.  I’ve never lost weight, gone back to school, learned a new language, or changed my life in any way.  My life has always been fine, and I’ve never felt the need to challenge myself in any way, so I can’t totally relate to what seems to be motivating the question.  Best of luck trying to “shake things up”, buddy.  Keep me posted on the progress!
