Musings

The brutal truth about accomplishment:  There are those precarious moments regarding my goals when it is all too easy to say I am “going through something,” or “it’s in the works,” or that I’m “making progress,” or laugh embarrassedly and forget about the task in favor of a devilish grin.  Those are the moments that require me to not shy away from myself, to brutally account for each second and injection of effort that I did or did not deliver, and determine whether the excuse was truly warranted or not.  

Is it unpleasant?  Yes.  Is it essential?  Unquestionably.

  1. Great insight @DirtySciFiBuddha. @domainofshane23, the procrastination is not the problem, but instead, the result of not holding yourself accountable to achieve your goal. It’s far easier to whip up excuses and/or rationalize putting something off until a “better” time. Not writing to that agent is only hurting you. What’s the worst that could happen? You get rejected? So what? Either way, you’ll likely learn something and probably feel good about having tried.
