For ages I’ve been saying that I want to learn spanish and it occurs to me that I’m going to spain at the end of june, so, today I reminded myself of the solution to everything in life:
1) Decide exactly what you want to achieve
– to speak spanish by the time I go to spain
2) Work out what you need to do, to go from where you are now to your goal
– buy a “learn spanish” cd/book
– work a bit through the course each day to make sure its completed by spain
3) Do it! Take a step towards the goal as soon as you think about it, otherwise you’ll faff.
Today I bought “instant spanish” a 35min per day 6 week course to learn spanish, cost £15 and read the day zero.
Tommorow I will get up and begin to learn spanish.
nb: faff – verb, “to faff” meaning to procrastinate or waste time, see also faffing or faffer.
