I had anticipated contributing to my blog more often than what it has been. So, here’s trying an accountability challenge for myself: write something everyday.
What stopped me you ask? Well, let’s see: fear of not being to able to write that packs a punch or filling the blog with fluff without doing enough research and of course the many alternatives that I have at my disposal to make an excuse not to write.
Huh! Committing is a tough job.
But everything you want to succeed in or get great at, needs work, effort, and consistency. As the old adage goes, “Practice makes perfect.”
Research shows that accountability drives performance, So, I assign you as my accountability partner. Would you be one?
Why do I want to keep at it?
Hmm. writing lifts me up, it is something has come natural to me, my outlet to my thoughts and emotions. Perhaps, I inherited this from my mom. And, because I am at a crossroads and I have to make some decisions, decisions under uncertainty and decisions based on expected payoffs. Being at this crossroads has tested me but also liberated and pushed me to think, be creative, and weigh my alternatives.
So, with nothing to lose, I am on a journey, a journey of writing. And the pieces seem to be falling together. This weblog is the perfect platform and here I am, on yet another learning adventure.
I signed up to be a Barefoot Writer and learn the ropes of persuasive writing. What is persuasive writing you ask? I need something to write about for my next blogs, don’t I?
Let the journey begin!
P.S. Are you at crossroads too? Do you have fun anecdotes to share about you at your crossroads? I would love to hear from you!
