I made this commitment to blog every day for November, and even on days like today, when I have already worked 15 hours, when I don’t have any inspiration for what to write about, when I am running behind, I am keeping with it. This is one of the most important keys to success. When you say you are going to do something, you do it, no matter what. So, I’m lying on the couch, dead dog tired, without a thought in my head, and blogging about not being able to blog. It still counts!
This is one thing I have noticed with many people, they do not have the commitment. They might have good ideas, they might even have great ideas, but I’ve said it before and I will say it again, ideas are worthless. Ideas are just words until they are put into action. And the action is worthless unless it has commitment and follow-through. So many people just give up when they find out their idea is harder than they thought. Nothing wrong with that, of course. We need people to sit in cubicles and do the grunt work. But, if you really want to be an independent success, you have to learn to commit.
So, even though this is just a personal challenge with no real penalties for giving up, here I am, about to fall asleep, typing out whatever comes into my brain because I am committed (or should be).
