Go Do It! — the Two-Letter Word Song

Many years ago I heard a song which I found amusing, catchy, and true… but I did not write it down at the time. I thought about it and tried to remember it and have tried to look it up on the internet several times, to no avail. I cannot remember the name of the singer who sang it, although I do remember where I heard it. It was at a concert at the Somerville Theater, in Somerville, Massachusetts. The headliner was Don White, a wonderful local comic singer/songwriter. This was not Don’s song, though—it was sung by the guy who was his warm-up act… whose name I cannot remember.

Well, not being able to find the song, I went about the task to put it together again, myself. However, I don’t have a tune for it. If this song looks familiar to you, and you know whose song the original is, please share! If you have your own tune that you can put together with my words, please share.

This simple song is full of wisdom. Here it is—please leave your comments!

The Two-Letter Word Song, or “Go Do It!”

Is it go, or is it no?
Is it no, or is it go?
If it is to be,
It is up to me.
So go do it!

Enough said.

The Shortest Distance Between Two Points

Everybody knows that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Seems kind of obvious… but how often do we forget this simple “law”? For me, this has often been a challenge.

Does this ever happen to you? It’s time to clean up. OK, gotta wash the dishes… but what are those papers over there on the table? Better move them first. I’ll put them in the basket of stuff that needs to be filed. Oh oh, forgot to brush my teeth. Better do that. OK… so what was I doing? Ah, yes… I was washing the dishes. Right, I’ll go back to do that. I see another paper in the wrong place… oh—I remember now… I left those other papers in the bathroom when I brushed my teeth. Better collect those and put them where they belong… and so on and so on. I can start a small project and make it a big one because in putting something away I can decide that entire closet needs to be reordered, which means removing everything from it… and once that is done, I have to go through it all and decide on whether to keep it and where the right place to put it is—which may mean I have to reorder another closet.

Another great example of getting side-tracked is email, or the telephone. You sit down with the intention of getting to work on something, then notice that you have email or voice mail, and then have to check it. Once you’ve checked it, you have to respond. If you respond to email, there may be some links in there that will take you to the internet and then you’ll be falling into that rabbit hole.

The worst place for this kind of distraction is when we are distracted from what our life goals are. If you decide you want to be writer, but then realize you need a job, and you get a job with a lot of responsibility, and then feel too busy to write, it’s going to be difficult to achieve that goal. So you need to think about ways that will help you go in as straight a line as possible to your goal–if you are really serious about your goal. This is going to mean that you will have to devote some time to it on a regular basis… daily, weekly, monthly. You may need to use some imagination or ingenuity to think of ways to work on your goals. Can you learn to be a better delegator? Have you learned to stop when something is “good enough”? Are there things you can read, write, or listen to as you are  commuting to and from your job? Is there something you can do during your lunch break? Is there a place and/or a time that you can set aside at home, after the kids are in bed (if you have kids), or even early in the morning? There is very little chance of achieving something without putting in consistent (and persistent) action.

Even if you do not have 8 hours a day to devote on your ultimate goal… do you have one or two? Do you have 30 minutes? What do you have? What can you put into place so that you are thinking in terms of that straight line—of getting from point A to point B? What distractions can you eliminate? What time can you carve out for your goals?

How Do You Get From Point A to Point B?

How do get from where you Are to where you want to Be?
People who want to move forward in their lives, achieve more, and live life to the fullest use a life coach.

How can you benefit from having a life coach? This is what one of my client says: “There’s value in working with a trained coach rather than ‘just working it out for yourself’; for some of us extroverts, if you don’t tell someone else about it, it didn’t happen. Actually articulating your thoughts to another person makes them real and let’s you hear them.”

A life coach gives you the support, clarity and action to:

  • bring more success into your life
  • create a personal development plan
  • live your fullest life
  • get unstuck from old patterns and limitations
  • live a balanced and abundant life
  • explore your true life meaning
  • manifest a life of joy

I would like to be your personal life coach, your greatness coach, your success coach, your self-realization coach! I would like to help you tap into life’s abundance and learn about manifesting your life goals. If you need to build self-confidence, improve your relationships, work on self-actualization or even total transformation, I can support you. I can help you nurture your spiritual growth and find the daily inspiration that will keep you moving forward. My life coaching is all about helping you to be your true authentic self, helping you to discover what you value most, and helping you align with those values. Life coaching is about motivating you, encouraging you, acknowledging you, moving you through limitations and old patterns, and getting you into action.

Together we’ll explore your life’s passions and uncover any blocks you may have to achieving what you most want in your life. I see my job as your personal life coach as increasing your awareness of options and moving you to take meaningful and constructive action. You, as the client, set the agenda. You decide what you want to work on. I, as your life coach, help draw out the answers, your answers, not mine. I believe in your greatness and uniqueness and ability to know at some deep level what it is that will work best for you to achieve your life goals. My coaching is based on a process of inquiry, asking you questions which will open the space within you to discover what the answer is for you, what is true for you, what will work for you. I will help you clarify and set your intentions, and then I will help you stay focused on your intentions.
