Day 9: “I Don’t Feel Like It”

I said this about writing and working on my niche site today.


As a creator, it’s part of my job to work on this. It’s part of my intention to push through when it’s difficult. When I feel like Atlas and the weight of the world is crippling. Like I said before this, I usually crash and burn with consistency around day 10. This would put me on track to mess that up.

And so I’m writing my thoughts down in a stream of consciousness to remind you that being human is imperfect. Sometimes you are not going to “feel like it”. Sometimes you are going to lay down under a weighted blanket and watch Netflix or play video games while you eat pizza. And that’s okay. That’s alright. Moderation is king.

As I start writing, my brain is salivating at the idea of creating and building this site. I’m now more excited then two minutes ago. Why is that?

I believe it’s because I overcame the desire to smoke weed and sit on the couch. It’s like when my body and mind work together and listen to each other, there is an increased trust and confidence working symbiotically between them.

I believe in the process. Where’s the 76'ers when you need em’? Or Seth Godin? #trusttheprocess

What Should I Do Today?

I had a plan to write the privacy policy, contact pages and get the boring stuff out of the way.
