Achieve can be such a scary word. It signifies something done, something reached for and achieved. It's the end of the 'do' process.

The hubster and I were talking the other night and I was wondering out loud why it seemed I had such a hard time finishing projects...getting that letter into the mail...uploading those photos I promised someone...baking the recipe I'd been dying to try. This isn't just being too busy, or forgetting something once in a while, but constant negligence. And he said it was because I wasn't a do-er.

I heartily concurred..I'm a dreamer. If I can imagine it, I feel just as accomplished as though I had done it in real life.

Are you a dreamer? Or a doer? On a Saturday morning, are you the type to finish 5-6 things before lunch? Or read a book and curl up in bed all morning?

I told him a few of my dreams for the future, things I hope to accomplish. I asked him, "Do you think I can do it?"

He said, "Yes."

I said, "But do you think I WILL do it?"

The answer was debatable. So for a few weeks I've been pondering that much can people change? If you want something badly, can you change enough of your fundamental character to be that kind of person? Can a dreamer become a do-er? Or could a do-er ever slow down to the pace of a dreamer?

The dreams and goals I have for the future require a lot of do-er persona so for the month of October, my focus is DO. It's not achieve (yet!) but the steps up to it.

What's your focus for October?
