But it's not impossible. Or so they say...
“Everyone procrastinates, but not everyone is a procrastinator” is one of my favorite sayings, because it tells us about human nature. We all delay taking action, but, usually, it doesn’t define us. It’s not a habit. It’s not something we do all the time.
Only about 20% of the U.S. population are procrastinators, so the chances are, I'm not one of them. Procrastinating, what I'm doing right now, isn’t a habit of mine. So, you ask, why haven’t I written my first blog post yet?
I need to do more work on the website first. I need to do more research before typing down my thoughts. I need to figure out how to write code, SEO's, set up a my site, price my product. I need to align my blogging goals with my business’ goals. What do my followers want to know? Oh gosh! Will I have any followers? Will anyone read this blog? Will anyone WANT to read this blog?
But here’s the reality: I’ll never be prepared to write my first blog post. You know why? Because there’s always going to be a great reason why I should do it tomorrow. (Aside from the fact that I am completely intimidated by writing - thanks to many years of Catholic Schooling). I'm stuck inside my own head. So here goes, I'm bucking up and writing... just writing.
Will anyone read this? Who knows? But I'll give it a go...
Wish me luck!
