There’s a time to think and a time to do. When you have a major life decision, it’s time to think before doing. If you have a project you are working on, maybe you just need to start it. Begin the process and let it unfold, and then think about it. If you are buying a house, start looking, notice how you feel, then think. If you are writing, start writing and see where your story takes you. If it is going nowhere, then take a few minutes to think, take a walk, go to the coffee shop, or move to a different space.
I’ve been writing a scifi novel for about two years, I’ve had a very general idea for a novel for about 10 years. I’m moving very slowly. I think too much, and I wait for an idea or inspiration. It’s fun! This year, I decided to take the NaNoWriMo, challenge. In the past I chose not to do it because it seemed impossible. This year I was a day late but I signed up. Will I meet the challenge to just do it and write more.
On the NaNoWriMo website, I can tally my words for accountability. The website says at the rate I am writing, I will meet the 50,000 word goal May 3, 2018. Am I discouraged? No. I have been writing everyday with the exception of one day since November 2nd. I’ve written more in two weeks than I did the first year of writing the novel. That’s an accomplishment!
If you are a thinker like I am, you can take the leap and start something you have been thinking about doing or work more on something you have a passion for doing. Take the challenge. Need organization, accountability, or help getting started? Give yourself a sense of urgency. Send me an email and set up a conversation. Need more? Invest in yourself and consider hiring a coach. You are worth it!
I would like to say call me, but with all of the unwanted calls, I just might not pick up. Then how would you feel? I would like to give you a positive experience and make good use of your time.
Creative work may take inspiration or ideas although sometimes it takes the discipline to just do it, check it, and share it.
