Getting Everything Ready

However we keep track of things, we each have some sort of revolving list of things to tackle.

 

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.”

~A.A. Milne

 

If we work to develop a system to keep like things together or a place to gather the necessary items for a task, we will be better able to focus on completing the task to the best of our abilities.

Question those Pricks of Doubt

We all have them, the pricking, nagging insistent thoughts that crack our confidence.

 

“Our doubts are traitors, and oft might make us lose the good we might win, by fearing to attempt.”

~William Shakespeare

 

Explore the reasoning behind the doubt before letting it pierce completely through your new venture.

Noting the Complete Moment

Writers have this as an advantage, since we tend to be skilled at observation: to have a high level of awareness in a moment.

 

“Be where you are.  Otherwise you will miss your life.”

~Buddha

 

We can share this awareness with those around us.

Thinking Boundaries

We all have mental walls that stand around what we know, what we believe, what we want.

 

“You’re only bound by what you think.”

~Adam Schwerner

 

What if we carved in doors, erected ladders, or just knocked down a wall or two?

Writing Your Meaning

Having people respond positively to something that you have written is such a rush.

 

“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.”

~Les Brown

 

Set a goal to improve your writing, write it down and tell someone – and then day by day you can make it happen.

What Effect Do We Have?

Most of us have a very small sphere of influence, relatively speaking, but we do have one.

 

“I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”

~Mary Oliver, When Death Comes

 

We don’t have to get grandiose and think about our legacy, but our acts and words can have meaning.

Attempt Something New

We can be thwarted by things that appear to be roadblocks, the ending of some part of our life.

 

“At the end of your life, all the things you thought were periods; they turn out to be commas.”

~Matthew McConaughey

 

Allow for the pause and then use this as an opportunity to start something different.
