In the iconic Seinfeld episode (aren’t they all?) the Pony Remark, Jerry bets Kramer that he won’t finish his renovation to build levels in his apartment.

Of course, Jerry wins the bet and the following conversation takes place:

JERRY: So, when do I get my dinner?

KRAMER: There’s no dinner. The bet’s off. I’m not gonna do it.

JERRY: Yes. I know you’re not gonna do it. That’s why I bet.

KRAMER: There’s not bet if I’m not doing it.

JERRY: That’s the bet! That you’re not doing it!

KRAMER: Yeah, well, I could do it. I don’t want to do it.

JERRY: We didn’t bet on if you wanted to. We bet on if it would be done.

KRAMER: And it could be done.

JERRY: Well, of course it could be done! Anything could be done! But it only is done if it’s done. Show me the levels! The bet is the levels.

Does that sound like you?

Do you have goals that you have wanted to achieve, but haven’t?

Do you have a long string of convenient excuses as to why you haven’t done it yet?

Because anyone can lose weight and get in shape, few do.

Anyone can become more disciplined with their reading, few do.

Anyone can have a flourishing career or small business, few do.

My suggestion?

Stop making excuses and be one of the few who gets it done.
