467 Steps to a Better You

Just kidding.
Check out any headline or click-bait and you’ll see numbers attached.
People seem to like when things are broken down into bite-sized chunks.
And numbered.
But 467? Seriously? That’s crazy. I’m pretty sure a professional could describe brain surgery or rocket science in that many steps.

That’s not advice, that’s one more distraction. Excuse. Crutch.
I can’t possibly be better yet, I’ve only addressed 113 of the 467 steps.

I originally considered titling this blog Mind Your Own Business.
Good ole MYOB.
In an effort to practice what I preach, I then entertained MMOB.

I genuinely believe I’d be happier if I minded my own business.
I can’t do everything. I can’t be everywhere. I can’t change things beyond my control.
So I shouldn’t waste time trying.

I should spend time on my own business.

One step to a better me.
I can see the headline now-
ONE STEP TO A BETTER ME!
I’d click on that.

Maybe you, too?

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
