Permission to give up!

Life imitates life, never is this truer than when people attempt higher levels of positive personal action.

I see it all in the psychological game that is fitness.

Smoking, drinking, eating, moving, rarely are these supported by those around the subject trying to change them. People are strange they profess support but apply sabotage.

Yesterday I had a meeting that started at 09:30 and finished at 11:45. I had a 75 minute drive to get there. 10 mins from my house I hit stupid traffic. 08:15 traffic! Enough said.


15 mins into my journey I knew I was not going to make my meeting, I then realise that I have left content needed for my 12:30 meeting in my other car. IDIOT!

I pull over and text message the co-ordinator to say I will be late. “NO PROBLEM” is the reply.

30 minutes later I receive another text telling me not to worry if I cannot get to the meeting (PERFECT GET OUT)

It would have been very easy to just ease off and change my planned route. I know the organiser very well and just text back with the word “SSH”

I got to the meeting at 11:00. There were 25 people already set up and taking part. After the obligatory piss taking from my lateness subsided I thanked the group for their understanding. I then listened to a piece delivered by a copywriter on ‘credibility’ and how your website needs substantiated and credible claims not over exaggerated bull s***.


At the end of the meeting, I thanked the organiser for giving me the opportunity to NOT attend if it had now become inconvenient and difficult.

I have a very good, bad reputation for making people either DO what they say they are going to do OR excepting responsibility for talking s*** and not doing what they say they are going to do.

When I say I am going to do something, I DO IT!

If I didn’t then I would have NO credibility.

I appreciated the organisers offer of “PERMISSION TO GIVE UP” in my efforts in getting to the meeting, I ignored the permission as I never give anyone least of all myself ‘permission to give up‘.

If you are one of my clients I will never give you permission to give up.
