Its not a secret
That being said, here's a secret I learned today. And its free.
The only way to get things done is to actually sit down and do them.I got some things done today. Finally.
Another week gone
The link for today is to Mark Sanborn's latest post on You Don't Need a title.
I subscribe to his blog via Feedburner, and it is one of only two that I actually set to have delivered to my inbox. Today's post gives three steps toward an 'extraordinary' life driven by your internal forces. First step is recognize and believe. The second step is identify. The third step is implement. Damn that third step.
Update on writing...
"Reading makes a man broad but writing makes an exact man."
I have yet to achieve any level of exactness.
Writing to write
If its true, I am far from complete. Since my middle boy just came down to my office for some homework help, its not surprising that I never take time to write. Its one of those things that I wish I would make time for.
I have Collen Mariah Rae's book Movies in the Mind - How to build a short story turned, cover facing out, on my desk's book shelf. Must of been a half subconscious effort to remind myself.
I have completely paid the tuition for the Institute for Children's literature course but have yet to complete a single assignment.
I have had this blog for years, probably since shortly after Blogger.com was launched, and only have now approached the 200 posting mark. Some of the posts were writing, but most were just links and snide comments about something.
Perhaps this is the first of more writing posts, perhaps its a stab at something I know I want but don't know how to get. Here's to hoping I figure it out.
