The Clock Is Ticking







The clock is ticking. The page is blank. The bed is waiting.
I need to work quickly if I’m going to do one more blog tonight.  Constantly there is an inner battle to stay focused but open.  Relaxed but intense.  This duality is the paradox of Purpose.  The only answer is to Get Started and Keep Going.  So that’s what I’m doing.  Writing one more blog in order to reach my goal of two a day.  Then it’s time  for some sleep.  I really need to be up at 5:00 a.m.  Otherwise, it’s hard to get things done.
Despite the difficulty writing two blogs a day presents, I enjoy the challenge.  I’m enjoying it at this moment.  I’m visualizing being done and I’m visualizing how I’ll feel, if one can visualize a feeling.  If I really need to put 10,000 hours into this to get good at it, then I need to do this now.  I don’t even have to write a lot.  I just need to write.  There are no other rules.  Just write and write every day. 
And that’s all I have to say tonight.  I just needed to Get Started and Keep Going, but not for very long this time.  I’m trying to break the cycle of staying up too late and not getting anything done in the morning.  So this is me taking care of myself.  The clock ticked.  The page is no longer blank.  And the bed is still waiting.
