Well? Do you have your prongs? I know, I know - you're probably thinking 'What the heck does that even mean?' "Prongs" are a euphamism that my girlfriend and I use to encompass the idea of inspiring self improvement plans. Dongs are things that distract and mislead you away from...well, your prongs. Several summers ago I realized that I needed a plan in the summer months for what I wanted to accomplish, so that Labor Day didn't roll around with big disappointment. So I began making plans each spring for what needed to get accomplished, and madly sticking with it. Sometimes it's things like reading all of the books by an author, or learning a new skill. Last summer I did volunteer work for two causes I believed in. You'll have to trust me, in the fall it feels good that you did it. It helps to have someone checking in on your progress and making sure you don't get distracted from your plan. So today my girlfriend and I are meeting for lunch to do a prong check, and make sure we're starting the summer right! Do you have your prongs in line?
