When DIY Becomes OMG!
"Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them." Proverbs 26:12
This passage reminds me of one of my DIY projects that became an OMG project - all because of my foolishness.
Years ago I had a plumbing issue at one of my rental properties.
Since I had grown up working in a hardware store and have some basic plumbing knowledge, I thought "Why hire a plumber when I can fix this myself?"
Two weeks after I had "fixed" the plumbing issue, I received a call from my renters. They were frantic. Water was gushing out of the wall and they were in panic mode.
To make the story even more OMG, it just happened to be a weekend which meant emergency rates to have a plumber show up and fix the problem.
The OMG didn't end after the plumber showed up. Even though the plumbing issue was fixed, we ended up with a mold issue.
My "wise" DIY decision turned into an OMG moment costing me a lot of time and money.
I learned my lesson. Never again be the 'fool.'
This story translates well to New Years' resolutions. Did you know that by February 1st 80% of people have given up on their fitness and weight loss resolutions?
Why is this?
Like my plumbing project, most of us think we can do it on our own when it comes to achieving our fitness goals.
The reality is most people don't have the time, energy, or knowledge to put together a SOLID program. It's hard for them to stay motivated long enough to see results. They choose not to 'call the plumber' and 'be wise in their own eyes.'
This usually turns into their own OMG moment of poor health, lack of energy and sometimes even catastrophic illness.
Don't let this be you.
Do you feel yourself losing steam and ready to give up on your 2021 fitness goals?
I don't know plumbing but I do know fitness. I can help and promise not to charge emergency rates.
