What a weekend! First off, it was a long weekend where I live (Monday was a holiday) and there was much visiting and driving around involved. My favourite part of the weekend was that my sister drove up from Toronto to visit for a couple of days, and my aunt, whom I have not seen in quite a while, came up for a visit while my sister was here so she could see the both of us. It was lovely… always nice to catch up with people you really care about.
And on top of that, I spent all day yesterday putting the final touches on my new book and getting it published to Kindle, which is why you didn’t get a blog post yesterday. (That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it… 😉 )
Which brings us to the topic of today’s post: why you just have to do it. Because I have a challenge for you this week: pick something you’ve been messing around with for a while, a goal you have or a project you’ve been “meaning to get around to” but just haven’t done so yet, and get it done! This week! Start today and just get it done. Your deadline is next Monday.
Your “why” for this challenge? It’s because you’re going to feel so freaking awesome when you get that project of yours DONE. And it’s going to inspire you to do even more. Energy is going to be unleashed and things are going to start moving. That thing you’ve been putting off is blocking your energy flow, and pushing through and making it happen, even if it has nothing to do with your bigger vision, is going to clear that murkiness up and get you back into the flow of things. So pick a project and make it happen!
As I said, I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome it feels to get this book published. It’s not the book I originally intended to publish, but I decided I wanted a “practice run” to learn how Kindle operates and how to do all the fiddly little techy things needed to publish an eBook on Amazon. So I wrote this book and got it done. And now I know how Kindle and Amazon work, and I am so psyched to get my “big” book finished and published, too! I didn’t realize how exciting it would be to actual have a published book on a site like Amazon… but holy cow, I was bouncing around my computer last night from the moment it went live, and I’m still bouncing this morning! Excitement! Energy! Motivation! Determination!
Just from getting that little project done.
And that’s what you’re going to feel when you get your little project done, too.
And that’s why you just have to do it.
So get to it! Get going! Pick something and just get it done! Be productive! Be creative! Be freaking awesome! And be sure to come back and let me know what you got done in the comments section below so I can join in your happy dancing! 🙂
P.S. If you want to check out my book, you can get it on Amazon…
