A funny thing happened on the way to my last blog post part 2

Coaching Moments, Coaching Tips, Taking My Own Advice

Okay so this time I was beset upon by a roving gang of monkeys that staunchly forbid me to update my blog, why? Honestly, I have no idea because I don’t speak monkeDo the thingy. Grin.

Alright, alright, I have no excuses. After my last post, my motivation went *poof* (again) and I kept saying I would get back to it and kept prioritizing everything else. Or I would have a great idea as I drifted off to sleep, not make a note of it, and fail to recall the idea in the morning, giving myself one more reason to say “I’ll get to it later.”

So here I am posting on motivation and keeping myself accountable (again) and making a  sincere effort to not let so much time accumulate between posts.

What helped me this time, supportive friends (again), and reminding myself that if I don’t make time for this, IT WILL NOT HAPPEN. I am the only one that is going to maintain my website, which cannot occur if I never give it time. So I sat down again at my computer gave myself permission to stare at an empty page willing inspiration to appear. I limited other distractions, no web surfing, no emailing, no looking at cat videos. I prioritized this blog, this aspect of my life, and when I did, well these words came out. They may not be the best words ever posted, yet they don’t have to be, for today it is enough that I sat down and did what I had been putting off for way too long.

And with that I am slowly getting motivation and determination back in alignment and am realizing that sometimes “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
