Tough love time.
I have an elderly neighbor who lives at the end of my street. In fact, the entire neighborhood used to be her family’s farm.
Miss Jane and her husband Josh always wanted the empty lot next door to their house to be saved for their children.
The children are adults with their own families and live out of state, but that was the plan.
Last year the “children” broke ground on building a house next door to their parents.
Josh died shortly thereafter.
The house should be finished in a few weeks.
But a big part of the plan is never going to come to fruition because they waited.
It’s a choice, every day, to do something else instead of start that book you always wanted to write.
It’s a choice, every day, to do something else instead of write that outline.
It’s a choice, every day, to not sit your butt down and make time – there is no “find the time” – you MAKE the time to write.
Find time? What are you gonna do, look in the couch cushions?
When you give your young children advice, do you tell them to put their dreams off for eventually, maybe, one day, if everything falls into place just right – or do you tell them to pursue their passion?
Why would you not give yourself the same advice?
Because the clock is running whether you write that book or not, and another year is going to pass whether you write it or not – and you know what?
I have no sympathy for the New Year’s resolution you recite again this year for the book that “didn’t get written.”
If you ever wonder why I act with such urgency it’s because Josh died. It was a bad plan.
So is yours if you’re not following your passion.
I mean, did you want to write a book or not?
