The 30-Day “Just Do It” Challenge

Dear People,

From here on out, I’m going to do 2 things as I wake up:

  1. Watch this video:

2. Think of something, quietly stand up, and — well…


Sure, this is a real experiment. Try it for yourself. I don’t care.

I think it could be a very useful and productive use of 60-seconds.

Just know that if you’re gonna do it, you actually have to do it.

And if you can’t, well you’re just a piece of shit by default.

The world needs more motivation; we could all use a little dose of Shia LaBeouf in our lives — especially early in the morning, with his forceful, almost aggressive, commands of overly positive statements. It’s strength for the universe.

“Just do it.”

How moving.
