There I said it. Please keep you side-eyes to yourself, thank you.
I’m a natural Grade A procrastinator; at times I wait until the last minute to write these posts. However for some reason today it was especially bad. It is 9:02 p.m. as I am typing this and for the last three hours I have done anything and everything to avoid writing. I did laundry, I took a shower, I let my roommate bother me about nonsensical things and I complained to her that I have nothing to write about and I suck at life. When I finally grabbed my laptop I then decided I needed to watch dance videos on YouTube. While watching I realized I could do my hair at the same time...it’s sad but impressive that I can up my productivity on activities that are not a priority.
So then I finally start to write, while desperately trying to not distract myself,(which is really hard by the way!) and I still don’t feel like writing. But you know what? Even though every cell in my body is throwing a tantrum about writing, I’m still going to do it anyway. There are some things in life that you’re just not going to want to do. It could even be something that you enjoy, but for some reason it sounds like the most unappealing thing you could ever think of.
But do it anyway.
Consistency is the key to success. There will be times in life where you don’t want to write another word, or solve another equation or draw one more stroke. Editing that video is the last thing on your mind, and if you have to re-do that spreadsheet one more time you are confident that you’re going to strangle someone. Nonetheless my beautiful ambitious queens, fight through the tears, push through the struggle and do it anyway. There is no secret formula, but there is magic in simply putting one foot in front of the other.
