Welcome to Day 244...
A confession here...
Since before my vacation my writing effort has been less than stellar. What can I say...the normal chaos that ensues before you can go put your backside on a lounge chair in a sunny & warm climate becomes all consuming.
Dogs to the sitter...mail stopped...laundry...packing...info emails on our plans to the family...you know the drill. #busywriterslife
I've been back for a few days now and I still haven't gotten into a good writing groove. I can blame part of it on the chaos of re-entry into our normal life...groceries...laundry...catching up on work...
But the other part of my lax effort has to do with the fact that my motivation and drive has been focused elsewhere.
Let me explain...
I've spent years doing walking and other low impact exercising but right before I went away, I started on a new training program...
cycling...swimming...running. I even joined a gym. Which is crazy because I've never, ever belonged to a gym before.
And I've jumped all in on this...spin cycling classes...400 yards of swimming...3.5 miles of walk/run.
I keep planning more of all these crazy and slightly addicting activities into my days, I'm even tracking my efforts, and you know what?
The very short term outcome of my new workouts has been surprising...more energy...more strength and a number on the scale that I haven't seen in a very long time.
So what's the moral of this story?
Good, no great outcomes can be had when you commit to one key component.
The answer is simply MORE.
So the test this week is to translate that key factor to the work on my book.
Do More...write more...edit more...spend one More half hour on the book than I had originally planned.
Why not make your own MORE commitment today?
Here's Today's Takeaway Lesson...
"Keep Going. There Are No Traffic Jams Along The Extra Mile"
