I really believe anything is possible. You only need two things to do anything: motivation and time.

Motivation is the tricky one.

Sometimes people want something, but not all of it, and think they can separate it. I’m a pretty fit guy, but it is because I want both to be fit and I like to be active and eat healthy. My friend is fit, but hates it, because he just wants to be fit. He has no motivation to become or stay fit.

A classic old line, “I don’t like writing, but I want to have written,” captures this perfectly. Motivation is simple when it all fits together. I love to write at least as much, if not more, than being able to say I wrote something. I think most people are amazed by those that are motivated for the entire set.

Time is the one that gets me.

I can have motivation dripping out of my eyes, but without enough time, nothing happens. Motivation to act, without action. I think that’s the definition of frustration.

(I love the saying, “I’ll make time for that.” I really want that time-making spell, but I think I would abuse it horribly.)

But patience, or stubbornness, can make up for limited time. Even if I only carve out an hour a day, at the end of a year, I will have “made” over 360 hours. That’s 9 forty-hour work weeks. Two months is a lot.

If you really want something, you can do anything.

If you had two months to do whatever you wanted, what would you do?
