Don’t put off ’til.._My post # 278

It is the job that is never started that takes longest to finish.” – J.R.R. Tolkien. So many times I have thought about major goals or lengthy to-do lists as either insurmountable or I have been in a quandry as to how to begin. A couple of months ago I decided to “play catch up” with the daily post crowd and get a whole truckload of posts done. At first it seemed like a ridiculously impossible goal in the midst of my busy life. Then I decided I would try to finish no matter what.

I discovered that sometimes I didn’t use the daily post “prompts’ but had other ideas for posts instead. I began to enjoy the rhythm of doing my posts and found that on some days the words flowed. That was a nice surprise. Since I was posting daily, it became a nice habit. I noticed different things in my life, my research, my reading, or whatever that could be funneled into a post.

So it was the beginning of my effort that was the tipping point. I just began it. Then i let that spread to other parts of my life. Some of the things I had been postponing got done. Now I am impatient about getting other things checked off my list. You see, from my point of view, nothing encourages success like success. If I can climb one hill I can climb another.

I see new possibilities in myself! That is so cool! I am beginning to redefine myself a little bit. Not in a major way, just in the system I use to approach and handle things in my life. I am a teensy bit less likely to procrastinate. That of course fills me with optimism, which of course feeds my perennial optimism!
