Weekend Challenge: Stop Digging

This challenge, of course, refers to the First Rule of Holes:  What’s the first thing you do when you find yourself in a hole?  Stop digging.

We all dig a little bit in our lives.  How many of us stay in a relationship longer than is useful because it seems like the right thing to do?  Or worse, enter into a marriage only because it’s the next logical step?  Or how about going to college, not because there’s any great passion for a subject that college could provide, but because it seems like the next logical step? 

This same thinking applies at all stages of life.  Think about staying in dead-end jobs, or chasing meaningless promotions for the title or the money, or continuing to pile up debt just waiting for things to turn around.

Holes, at their early stages, are what are commonly referred to as “ruts,” and nobody likes them and tries to get out of them.  But if you keep digging at that rut, it will become a hole from which it is very difficult to escape.

This weekend, identify the holes you’re digging and resolve to STOP!
