Sorry I’m late guys!
Hours Days of my life have been sucked away into the Black Hole that is watching Game of Thrones, and I’m ashamed to say I *may* have forgotten about my W post this weekend. Can you blame me though?
The good news is, I’m all caught up now, which means I can have a life once more (and write timely blog posts).
Anyway, on with the show.
Today I wanted to share a quote with you that I’ve found invaluable as far as getting me motivated in the morning. I realise that having wasted most of a weekend watching the battles and politics of Westeros unfold, I am not the most qualified person to talk about not wasting time – or maybe I am, as a time wasting expert.
It’s so easy to get waylaid, to procrastinate, to find things that need doing. There’s always tomorrow, I’ll wait until Monday to start, I need this *perfect* situation (which never comes) to do what I need to do. We’ve all been there.
It doesn’t have to be writing, it can be any long term goal – all long term goals are best achieved by chipping at it a little every day.
I find this quote very powerful. It strips away all the anxiety about publishing (or the non writing equivalent), about success and failure, it removes any pressure, any fears. It brings it all back down to the bare essentials. There is only today, and today we must write.
I thought I’d share it all with you in case you needed a little motivation too. Are you going to write today?
Do you have anything you use for motivation? If so, I’d love to hear!
