I’m currently reading a book (I can’t remember what it’s called) and the author was talking about how much easier it is to tackle a big project that you keep putting off by just doing “something”.
He used an example of web design and said when he needed to design an entire website, he would put it off day after day – waiting until he was “motivated enough” … “inspired enough” … “ready enough” to start. That day never came and the deadline would without fail be quickly approaching with no progress in sight.
The point of sharing this story? He motivated me & I hope to motivate you.
He ultimately realized over time that he could hack himself by “tricking himself” into getting motivated. How? He just sat down to “do something”.
He explains it as sitting down to do something seemingly small or unimportant, yet related to the bigger task at hand, such as design the header at the top of the page… then once he finished that one simple task, he’d move on to something else that seemed small and “easy enough” to tackle that day. Then, before he knew it, he was knee deep in the project, inspired and motivated to keep working on more of it.
So that’s what I’m doing here. I’m just sitting down and writing “something”.
I have so much I want to write about and share with you, that I feel paralyzed by it. I keep waiting for the “right time” or the “right words” to come to me, but I’ve allowed that to become my biggest excuse for avoiding it all together.
How can I help you discover how to help yourself if I’m not sharing my side of the story. You can’t read my mind, You don’t know what I’ve done to change my life for the better – unless I tell you.
I became a nurse because I love helping people.
& When I felt like something was missing from my career, I created this website to fill the void that my nursing career had left me with.
I wasn’t able to help people the way I wanted to within the traditional healthcare system because of the way it has been built. It’s a well oiled machine built for maximum profit with little to no time to connect with the patients, heal the patients, or help the patients like most of us originally sought out to do.
With this website I have a voice. It has reached more of you than I ever thought possible.
& Here I am letting all of that go to waste by waiting for the “perfect time” to tell you the “perfect story” with the “perfect solution”. I’ve wasted alot of time waiting for something that’s never gonna happen.
Nothing happens overnight. If motherhood has taught me anything these last 4 months … It’s that the seemingly small, mundane tasks that we do repetitively on a daily basis – those are the things that ultimately lead to big progress and great outcomes.
Here’s picture proof.
I’m able to share my story and the things that I’ve learned along the way with this blog, all I have to do is “do it”. & In doing so, I will unknowingly help many of you overcome similar obstacles and or help motivate you to tackle your own battles in your own way – because of something I’ve said or done.
That’s why I’m here.
That’s why I’m coming back.
It’s February 1st, 2020 – I’ll be back tomorrow.
