I know I can squeeze in a half hour of writing time.
If I start now.
That’s really key. Starting now. And it works with anything you might need or want to do, anyone you might need or want to become.
Starting now works with chores, large and small. Exercise. Diet. An earlier bedtime. Better skincare. And cooking dinner.
Starting now moves my pieces around the game board, so I show some forward movement and overcome my own personal inertia.
I sit with my dreams far too long. So starting now gets me up and on with it already, making a shift from … I don’t think I can … to just watch me. Stubborn petulance can be one of my biggest motivators. My husband thinks its cute.
If I start now, I’m choosing. I’m active. Successful or not, pass or fail, win … lose … or tie. But if I wait, one more minute’s passed along with another opportunity.
(And who knows what I’ll have to say to myself about that?)
Are you ready? Are you ready to start now?
