So over the last week or so i was considering taking part in Movember but in the end i decided not to.

Why not?

I spent last week letting my top lip’s ample furriness grow out a bit and then on Friday I trimmed all but the tache. I realised i looked like a dork but i also realsied something a lil more disturbing. My focus on this was for wrong.

My motivation was not based on helping those who have been affected by prostate cancer at all. My motivation was based in wondering how I would look with a mustache. Mainly a handlebar. This makes me a bit of an idiot. So instead of doing something half baked I’m going to drop it completely and concentrate on the stuff i do well and effectively.

It’s scary how fickle and whimsical I can be in some things. I like to try a lot of things but sticking to them is harder. There are a lot of unfinished projects out there by your truly and it troubles me that this wasted time could have been put to use in a much better way.

At the very least i can try harder to be more purposeful in my choices and activities.

I thought i’d mention it to the world in-case some one random happens across it and wishes to take part.

Have you ever done anything for the wrong motivation?
