The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step
Wow! I did it!
I finally started a blog. I have stood on the precipice for almost nine months looking over the edge and trying to decide to take that leap of faith.
So why now? What made me chose today to ignore those negative voices in my head that kept telling me that I was not good enough, that I would fail, that I didn’t have anything worthwhile to say?
I don’t know.
Well that’s not exactly true. It was not one earth shattering, light bulb moment that push me over the cliff edge but a critical mass of messages that got me started. Mostly it was several blog postings from Problogger and goinswriter.com that got the right message through my thick skull.
And the message that worked? Just Start.
It doesn’t matter if it’s not perfect. It doesn’t matter that I don’t have enough technical skills. What matters is that I commit and be consistent. The rest will follow.
So today I sat down and I started and that was the single step.
