If you've been following this blog for any amount of time, then you've probably noticed I write a lot about inspiration. I have covered this topic on all levels: from how I inspire and how others inspire me, to where inspiration can come from. But there comes a time when inspiration has to remain just that, and you have to start putting in the work.
I had to remind myself of this last week. You see, I’m the type to get super organized and have all the necessary materials and be completely prepared for whatever task or project I plan to start. But lately my problem has been putting in the work. Again, I’ll find all kinds of inspiration and will be motivated to do something. But when it comes to the actual process of doing it, something happens. I get lazy, distracted, or I get in my own way. I don’t know why I allow this to happen to me. This feeling of resistance arises when writing of any aspect comes about. And this has me scared. Scared that I won’t meet my personal deadlines.
