Getting Shit Done. The Rules.
It’s very, very simple.
Either you want something to happen, change, BE –
Or you don’t.
I have to tell you honestly –
Sometimes I feel as though what I write? Is SO damn repetitive. I have dreams of running an INSANELY huge book business. Of having over 100 titles on Amazon, no less! Of MAKING millions and also HELPING millions of incredible, kickass women (and men!) to truly press play.
And sometimes I feel as though I’m on my way, truly. Hey – I write a LOT! I publish a good fair whack as well! I AM on my way! But I’m also so far away, in other ways. Aren’t we always? Isn’t there always another level? Isn’t this the joy and also the pain of it all?
And in my darkest times; the times when okay it’s not actually DARK but yet I do doubt myself and wonder, as does anyone, ‘will I ever get there’, I have to question –
Is what I’m doing even any GOOD?
Does it even MATTER?
Isn’t it just all the same old same old BULLSHIT?
I find myself wondering if you and my other readers think I’m just this deluded crazy person who is rambling on and on and ON about pressing play, and making shit happen, and living the life you want; now, but yet not actually doing it herself!
I find myself questioning whether I am GOOD enough to be writing even a single book, let alone several, or more!
I find myself asking whether I have enough CONTENT … does anyone even want to hear what I have to say?
I don’t know, truly! Even though I daily receive messages thanking me. But yet it’s also never as much feedback as I WANT.
My ego is hungry.
But through it all, and no matter how ‘dark’ my thoughts about my own worth, do you know what I do?
I get up.
Not every day, that’s true.
Sometimes, the beast within wins.
Today, it dies; a little more for another day.
Today, right now – I write.
Tomorrow – I face the same damn battle yet again.
And that’s the thing, isn’t it? As Steven Pressfield says (God I love him!) – resistance is ALWAYS there. It NEVER quits. It will KEEP COMING AT YOU.
And you must keep knocking it BACK, if success is to be yours.
So, a lesson of sorts.
And very NEEDED, I feel, for all of us.
On how to get shit done, a lot:
1) Decide what matters
2) Pick a path or way in which to do it (you must pick NOW)
3) Decide how much time or resources you WILL dedicate (not what is ideal, but what you WILL give)
4) DO IT
You want to talk productivity, the rules, making shit happen, the rules, the best approach for creativity or whether or not you should wait for inspiration?
Do the work.
Whether you feel like it.
As much as you CAN.
The best WAY you can.
ALWAYS sooner rather than later.
And then repeat.
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
