This week has been one of those where ideas come up. Things happen I consider doing things that aren’t in my ten or even twenty-year plan and I have to abandon them.
I’ve been trying to write another book this year and I haven’t been able to get any words on the page. I’m not sure of why. Maybe my mind is occupied with the world around me and I can’t shut it off as easily as I did last year.
Last year was a banner year for my writing: Three books were written and I’ll be submitting two of them.
I have big plans for this year and the one idea that came up this week would have thrown all those ideas out the window.
The idea was something I’ve always wanted to do, but it wasn’t in my plan so it got tossed.
When ideas come or opportunities present themselves there are decisions to be made.
I made the decision to finish my plans for the year and to ignore any distractions.
If it’s not pushing me towards my goals, it’s a distraction.
Anyway, move forward and don’t stop until you’re there.
