What’s up people? Knurly here, questioning my every move and thought. If you’re a self over-analyzer, you know what I mean. Anyway, something I’ve mentioned several times of this blog is an extreme desire to “do what I love.” And much of my blog has been that so far, however, I have ambitions outside of this platform that feel like they are slipping away from me. First and foremost, I want to seriously write my book. In all fairness (to myself) I have been working on my book but not as intensely as I hoped at the star of the year. It’s time to shift my gears and buckle down. After all, if this is really what I want to do with my life – I should be able to prioritize my work.
Therefore, I am enacting a challenge. For the next three weeks (roughly the time I have before starting my summer job – oh yeah, I got a summer job!) I want to utilize three hours each day to writing. At least two of the hours I spend writing should be focused on my book. Another hour has been set aside to practice drawing. I have a sketchpad labeled “Summer ’16” – meaning that I intended to fill that sucker up almost two years ago! I won’t let time slip away from me anymore.
It just boggles my mind how much I can get done when I set aside time. I always thought that I’d be some unstoppable machine if I was ever to utilize the time that I have to studying, practicing, whatever. Let’s see if I am right. I want to see how far this will take me. Plus, I hate losing, so I have a huge incentive to complete this challenge. The challenge starts today, April 16th (you maybe be seeing this post later than that, sorry) and ends the 7th – conveniently the week of finals. Wheeze!
I am publishing this post as a record of my intent. Please, you must publicly shame me into keeping my own promises. Nothing like a little public humiliation as motivation, am I right?
Anyway, in the meantime, please enjoy some of my other posts, there are many to come. (I have a queue right now that I can’t even keep up with!)
So tell me: what passion or projects have fallen to the wayside in your life? Do you have plans to pick them back up? If so, how are you going to build the discipline?
