Getting started

Getting started at something new is always the hardest part. It’s something I constantly struggle with, no matter what the task is. The first time you attempt to do something new, you generally suck at it. Now I realise that part of getting good at something is being able to accept that when you start you are going to suck at it, but that it is going to make it feel all the more awesome once you get better at it.

Lesson #1: Why I procrastinate (and how I’m going to stop doing it)

For the last week I’ve been wanting to work on my book, but I haven’t actually got as far as sitting down and doing any of the work. Each day I make up excuses of things I ‘just need to do first’ before I can start the task, but then at the end of the day I still haven’t made any progress.

I know what I want to write about, I just wasn’t going to do it because I was trying to make myself feel less like a big kid and more like a responsible adult. But you know what, gaming has actually made my work life more productive, so I think that is worth writing about.

The day I realised I wanted to become a writer

One of the things that I’m learning at the moment, as part of this journey, is that if you let yourself, each day you can and will learn more then you thought possible. More about yourself, and more about what you need to do to get there.

Just when I think I know what I want, or that I’ve figured out what my big dream is, I learn something else, and that opens up my mind to a whole new world of possibilities.
