There’s no need to stare at the empty paper and think of an idea. The best thing to do is to start typing about anything that you can think of at the moment in a draft that will not be published.

It will:

  • give freedom
  • releases from perfectionism
  • empower you for quality conversations with others because you rambled everything out on the paper
  • fire up your mind in coming up with ideas

Sometimes our feelings trick us into believing that we do the work while we are only thinking about working. This illusion feels very discouraging because we don’t see any results. Obviously, the results don’t come because we are not working enough. Although it seems we are, it’s healthy to actually track things to know the factual reality.

Growth steps are usually invisible individually. Yet they create the biggest impact when combined.

You need to remember that every action and thought matters. They are not insignificant. They might only be bites or atoms of your success but they are compiling with every time you put some effort toward your goal.

I’ve heard someone say that the pressure we as writers put on ourselves to write something good. This pressure is neither healthy nor helpful. It stops us dead in our tracks.

Sometimes I just want to type:

Pre-Success is like drops of water. It drips on a stone. One drip, another. It speaks of perseverance. It creates a little hole. Faithfulness. The little hole becomes deeper. The dripping continues. It is focused and determined. Because of that comes a time when it succeeds to drill through the stone.
