As I press on in this journey I’m aware of the past. Why is this time going to be any different? I started this blog in October 2013 and since then there’s been intermittent periods of action ad writing….and many periods of procrastination and inaction.
So I’m taking stock. What happened last time? Or should I say who was I last time?
The major factor in my failure wasn’t that I was an addict…it’s that I didn’t know I was an addict! So the natural boom and bust of addiction I just thought I was a weirdo.
Discipline and hard work is not something that comes easy to me. Of the many talents I have, that is not a natural skill. Showing up at the time I say….and staying there until the end.! I’d be lucky to even make it to the desk!
As much as reading and podcasts inspire me…..they were inspiring…there success and achievement…and then….
Thinking I knew better than the experts….people who had wrote bestselling books, acclaimed public speakers and bloggers. That I would do it my way and not the way they were showing me!
Not telling anybody what I was doing! Especially my family. Not sharing my work. Having no investors in the dream
I want it now! I don’t want to work for it. I’m not getting a job and handling my responsibilities….I need the time to work on my dream!
One day I wanted to write. The next I wanted to make youtube videos. And then start a podcast. And learn build a twitter following. Write about entrepreneurship…then about health…
Oh a new episode of game of thrones is on..cool
So those are my 7 deadly flaws. If I’m getting stopped it will have something to do with one of these.
But I can know this and it will keep happening……
So what am I going to do about it?
