Why do people quit too easily?

Hi there,

Whilst swimming yesterday I was musing about some of the other people who go swimming on a regular basis.

I have been going regularly twice a week for over three years to my local swimming pool but cannot recall anyone else who has also been going there so long.

There are a few people that have been going for some time but most seem to come along and swim seriously for 2 or 3 weeks then completely disappear never to be seen again.

Obviously some of these people may have moved, gone elsewhere etc but most just quit.

The same thing seems to happen with starting most projects. There is a lot of initial enthusiasm which after a while wanes. I suppose it is because we all expect instant gratification these days.

Thought for today: Do you have the stamina to keep going especially if things get tough?

Joke for today:- What's the use of happiness. It can't buy you money.

On this day:- 19th November

In 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers landed at Cape Cod.

In 1828 Franz Schubert died.
