I am just as guilty of this as anyone. Procrastination and laziness are something we all have to battle on a daily basis. The moment you start resting on your laurels, you’ve already lost.
If you want something bad enough. Go out and fight for it. Work for it. No one is going to do it for you.
This applies to write your book, losing weight, going back to school, being a better parent, etc.
No one, no matter how good of an intent they have can or will do the work for you.
Maybe this isn’t what you want to hear, but its the honest to god truth. You have to work for you.
Your friends and family should be there to support you along the way, (and if they arent then fuck em. You don’t need them anyways). But no matter whos giving you support, it’s on you to produce.
For years I slacked off on what I should have been doing because I was waiting for help to come. Guess what. It never came.
Do it your damn self.
You will get beat up, you will get knocked down, you’ll be tired and over worked. None of that matters because your life work will not take form without you working on it yourself.
Get up. Shake it off. And work.
