I just hit 350 blog posts this morning. About one every other day for two years. Candidly, for the past six months, I’ve been writing one every day. Wow.
There are two types of people in the world.
- One quickly writes a blog post every day. Easily. It flows out of you like a rainbow.
- One tries to write every day. It’s hard. You start to question yourself — did I write this already? Definitely not a rainbow happening here.
I am certainly from the #2 group. But I made a commitment to myself, my clients, and my readers that I would write every day.
I get up every morning at 4:30 AM, sit down at my laptop, and write (okay — I shower first). And I say this mantra to myself:
- Get it done.
- Don’t put it off.
- Make it happen.
As Eckhart Tolle calls it, The Power of Now. “Be present as the watcher of your mind — of your thoughts and emotions as well as your reactions in various situations.”
My interpretation — Don’t let the ‘busyness’ of your worries take over, don’t let fear creep in, and above all, don’t procrastinate.
As Nike says, “Just Do It.” So I write every day. And guess what?
It sucked at first. But now, after six months, it’s a lot easier. So I keep at it. Now to YOU:
What one thing are you procrastinating on right now? What are you putting off?
Take the first step and start getting it done. You’ll find it’s not that hard, or time consuming.
That’s just your ego speaking.
