"This weight won't lose itself..."

I saw someone post this on Twitter just now: "well, this weight won't lose itself, so i must go... :( off to the gym..."

It reminded me of a recent Seven Habits of Highly Effective People workshop I went to at work.

One of my favorite parts of the workshop was the language that proactive people use.

I think it can be well summed up in one example: Reactive people are prone to say things like "I have to do X" while proactive people say "I choose to do X."

I suppose there could be a lot of analyses of the statement "this weight won't lose itself so I must go ... to the gym" and how it's not proactive. I won't delve into all of them.

I must say, I kind of enjoyed the image of weight losing itself, weight getting lost, in the moment, in the exercise, in meditation...
