Listen to your heart they say
But when does that ever end well
People always go running back to toxic relationships out of love
Indulge in binges for the love of food and alcohol
Love is a drug and it’s a powerful one
Love lies it’s not the best thing for you
What the heart wants, will probably kill it
Follow your logic not feelings
Questions appear as you do the Work
Trying to solve problems that don’t exist yet is procrastination
You may think its productive, but it isn’t
Because you never know what problems will show themselves and when you try and think of them all
There will be more
So you can never ask the question how do I solve this until it happens
And to do that you need to begin the work
Because when the wheels are in motion, problems are easier to solve than when you haven’t even begun
One word on the page, is worth a whole story planned in the head
– Michael Baldwin
A single action is better than an idea sitting in your head, a word on a page means you started the work, a single action means you did something more than most do, you took action.
Ideas overtime lose power, we lose interest and let the world distract us.
Any progress even if that is one single word on a piece of paper is better than one thought with zero action, because one word, leads to two,
Let’s look at it this way,
In the dating world, if you send a one word message ‘Hey’ for example, its better than not sending anything and at least you may get a reply…
The moral, just do something, anything as long as its not thinking about it
All a writer really has is experience
If you intend to write, start to get yourself some experience now
I get asked how I come up with content every day, I read a lot and I’m human so I have experiences
Experience, no matter what craft your in, helps you become better, even if the experience isn’t related
Experience can always be translated to something else and the lessons extracted
Whatever your craft, get some life experience
None of us know why we want to write, or not at the beginning.
But once the determination takes hold we have to do it.
– Michael Baldwin
Not just with writing, but anything in life, we often have urges to do somthing that we never would have thought of doing,
We don’t know why we got the urge, but it doesn’t matter anymore
The determination has taken over we have to follow through our it will eat away at us, plague us until we do
Has some determination taken over you?
Destiny may be calling you, what are you waiting for?
