The Struggle is Real

“The Principle of Priority states (a) you must know the difference between what is urgent and what is important, and (b) you must do what’s important first.”

Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles


I’ve been struggling with this a little lately.  If you’re keeping score this is my third blog post of the year.  It’s still early but I’m already a little behind with my goal of one new post per week.  However, I have been very productive in other areas.  Does anyone else do that?  I’ll knock out tasks on my to-do list because really I’m avoiding one task that I really need to get done.  Writing blog posts may not change the world but it’s important to me.  Mainly because I said this is something I was going to do.  I like to think I’m a man of my word and at the beginning of the year I said I was going to write 50 posts this year and I really don’t want to spend New Year’s Eve writing 40 new entries just to get it done (is that Parkinson’s Law?).  Other than my struggle with writing this year has been great for me personally.  There’s lots of new opportunities coming my way and I can’t wait to share them with you when the time is right.  Tonight will be the first meeting of my new running group and there will be a lot more fitness endeavors for me this year in addition to cooking classes and health coaching.  That’s it for now.  Talk to you soon!
