Can I tell you something? It’s not easy for me to say but I feel like you’ll give me a fair hearing, so here goes…
I’ve been putting off writing this month’s blog post for at least 2 weeks because I needed to make it perfect.
There, I’ve said it.
I feel like I should know better, be able to ‘fix’ myself somehow so that I don’t procrastinate like this. But guess what – I’m a perfectly imperfect human and I can talk myself out of all sorts of things if I try hard enough (and I can be very persistent – ask my husband!)
So this is me, telling you what I’ve been doing. A sort of ‘Confessions Of A Life Coach’ if you will.
The good news is I am actually writing a blog post. I am! I’m doing it right now. As I’m writing this I’m thinking about how it might help you one day – to know that I was putting this off but I eventually did it anyway.
I didn’t use any fancy schmancy technique either, I just thought about you and what you might want to hear today and the writing started happening. But that’s not the real key. The real key is I stopped thinking about me (and all my thoughts about mistakes I could make and what you might decide about me). As soon as I did that, I let go of perfectionism, opened up a blank post and started writing to you.
I don’t have a cool ending or a ‘call to action’ for you. There are no pretty photos or clever quotes. There’s no moral of this story. I’m just sending this out in the hope that maybe, just maybe, this might help you get something done today. And if nothing else, at least I’ve finally written something and published it!
until next time…
