Anyone whose read this blog knows that I have been working on a very personal project for years now, since December 2009 to be exact. This makes it 4 years and 4 months exactly.

If you had told me it would take this long and that the path would be as winding as it has been, I’d have argued with you then.

Yet, here I am, about to let go of a tiny step forward and still I PROCRASTINATE. My mind comes up with ways to check my privacy settings on facebook, ways to ask another friend to read over something, ways to make sure that it’s the right astrologic time to release something and so I could go on. THEN, as is always the case, the signs pop up in front of me in their droves.

I’m sure it’s not the “right blogging practise” to share someone else’s words by cutting and pasting here on my blog but today I must break that rule if indeed it is one.

Seth Godin’s blog, along with his books provide me with consistant inspiration and upside down ways of thinking. Some how I just know, when I read his posts, that he articulates for me in ways I am desperately trying to do by myself.

Although what I want to share today came from Steve Pressfields facebook timeline, it referred to text that Seth had written about a book that also inspired me to face my RESISTANCE in the eyes and blink, knowing i would still be there afterwards and realising slowly, what procrastinating looks like to me, and then moving on.

“No book has had a bigger impact on my work than this one.

It’s entirely possible that you don’t have a little voice in your head, that you live an authentic, grounded life without second guessing yourself, avoiding the real work and giving in to doubt.

If so, congratulations. You’re from Jupiter.”

and Susie, you were right, one last mention landed up being the right thing to do. Thank you!
