I’m so busy. My life never stops. I can’t get a day off. I work sun up to sun down.
The excuses go on and on in our head. If you haven’t noticed, it’s been three longs months since I’ve posted on here. Why? Because I haven’t made time for it. Despite not posting, 1,000 readers have been kind enough to read what has been posted in the past and for that, THANK YOU! You give me great encouragement.
Like myself, all readers and writers need a little encouragement now and again. I hope the following few lines are that for you. I’ve been thinking about why I haven’t posted here on my website. I thought, I’m so busy! But was I? Not really. I thought, my life never stops! But does it? Yes. So after delay after delay, self imposed I might add, I finally made time to get back here.
What does that have to do with you? Let me tell you.
We all have things we need to get around to do. Maybe it’s writing, maybe it’s reading, maybe it’s a home project, maybe it’s work, maybe it’s exercise. This list goes on and on, along with the excuses as to why you haven’t started.
Stop right now and think of two things that NEED your attention but you haven’t gotten around to it.
What are your two things? Now, say them out loud. …unless there’s someone in the room that thinks you already have that unfinished project done.
Now that I know them, how do I get them done?
1. Stop what you’re doing and do it. I was enjoying a Cardinals game on TV and stopped watching to grab my computer and sit down to write. …it probably helped that they were losing and it was boring. But sometimes you have to put away what you love, to do what it necessary. It will be worth it in the end. I promise.
2. Find someone to encourage you. Today I met a guy through Jon Acuff’s blog named Chandler. We exchanged a few messages on Twitter and he made me realize, I need to get back on track. Go check out Chandler’s story at http://www.ChandlerCrawford.com. Go get some encouragement from someone and get it your projects done!
