2012-11-15 The Shoulds

Information sharing is an interesting business, especially when the information you’re sharing is information your readers already have. Like this:

You should save your money.

You should spend more time with your family.

You should spend less time in front of the TV.

You should exercise more, and do it more vigorously.

You should eat more vegetables.

You should eat less sugar.

You should talk to your significant other.

You should be involved in your community.

You should stretch more.

You should read all of these books before you read any teenage paranormal romances.

You should travel more.

You should learn a new skill every year.

You should call your parents.

You should eat more organic food.

You should eat more local food.

The problem is that all of this is a little too much to take care of. Pick one thing and do it. The more you do it, the easier it becomes, and then you can add another. Keep track of your progress, and you’ll be amazed where you get in a month or two.
