The "You Oughta" Club

June 14, 2017

I’m thinking of starting a new club. Every time I get together with friends or family, somebody says to somebody else, “You oughta…”

Even when the advice is good, though, people rarely take it. We say, “I just needed to vent.”  

I think we should start a “You Oughta” Club. Every week or month we can check in and see if anybody has taken that first step. (Like, “I looked up that career online, and there’s nothing that disqualifies me from doing it.”) Then we could encourage that person, or get encouragement ourselves, to take our “You Oughtas” a step further. Who knows how far we could get?

Yep. I oughta start a club.
