I love the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. In the movie, there is a scene where Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and The Kid (Robert Redford) are being pursued by a small but skillful posse. At first we see Butch and the Kid try to out run those in pursuit. Then they try trickery and hiding among the mountains. Eventually our heroes come to a point where the only choices are be captured or jump off the mountain into a raging river. At times responsibilities and pursuing goals can feel this way.

We run, we avoid, we try tricks and eventually our only choices are to admit defeat or JUMP!

The Famous Jump

I certainly can’t speak for everyone, but my favorite trick for avoidance….the internet. I can spend hours in ‘research’. Or another ruse is ‘let’s go get lunch’ or ‘run errands’.

How much easier would our lives have been had we just jumped from the start?

How much more could we accomplish if we took the bull-by-the-horns first? What if instead of making excuses or rushing to meet a deadline we did things early? Imagine a world where instead of wasting time in avoidance we had time for the things we love and want to do.

Try it today.
