The good news and the bad

So the good news is that a fair number of you related to my post yesterday about all the reasons I find not to write.

The bad news is that a fair number of you related to my post yesterday about all the reasons I find not to write.

And if you didn’t relate to the writing procrastination, you had other examples of things you are not doing. Things that make you happy but which you stopped. Ideas you have had knocking around for years but which you have not acted on.

It makes no sense that we don’t do the things we want to do – but there you go. Humans make no sense. We are our own worst enemies.

But back to the good news – we are in it together. Cheesy, I know. But true. If we want it to be.

In 2016 an American politician used a proverb that was shared widely and then debated because nobody could agree on its origins. No matter where it comes from, the proverb is this: ‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’

People have been emailing me the things they want to do. I have been inviting them to give me deadlines by which time they need to have done the thing. I have put those dates in my calendar and will follow up.

I am not playing to my strengths here – organisation and consistency are not my strong points – but I’m going to try.

So if you need some accountability please let me know.

Being accountable to you is the only reason I am putting up this blog post today. I was planning to share a longer one that’s been knocking around my head for a while – but it’s not quite right yet.

But I said I would post today and so here I am posting today.

Sometimes maybe it’s just enough to show up.

Love xx
