When in doubt... use the SECRET
Well, I blew it. I always knew this day would come. It was just more than I had expected it to be, and I broke...
NO! No no no! I'm still sober! Holy crap! No, I'm stone-cold sober! Yikes!
What I mean is, I forgot my blog was due last night! Oi. I simply forgot that it was due. I sat in the house thinking, "Man, I strangely have a lot of free time. How weird. What am I to do with all of this?"
With a POP! I woke up this morning and knew I'd completely missed my deadline. ugh. It was bound to happen, I was just hoping that our site would be a year old first.
I've been sitting here for thirty minutes, wondering what I would do about this. moping about how I'd done nothing and I was failing my task. Mind you, I've missed in the past before, when I was doing the Nearly-Daily blog posts, but that was daily, so one would expect that a day or two might be missed. But since I went to the once per week thing, I didn't want to miss any. But I did.
How am I going to fix this? I have to leave to go to my regular job in less than ten minutes, and I am SOOOOOO FAR BEHIND! The pressure is on, and I am feeling a little stressed to say the least... and then it occurred to me:
I mean, duh. DUH! duh. So here I am, just getting started. I am getting started and moving forward with my day, with an unusual blog for me, but I think this is an important lesson, nonetheless.
So really, I guess I didn't entirely miss my deadline. Just, well -- sorta. Okay, I missed it, but I'm moving on!
If you're not sure where to start out on your day, or that project, or how to ask the question or tell your story -- just get started. After all, isn't that how we all got sobered up, more or less?
