I’m in a funk. There is no two ways about it. I am off my game and I don’t feel like I have been creative in a month or so. Yes, I am still writing and getting things out there in the the world but the really big stuff has been lacking. One of the reasons I getting mired and bogged down is that I keep on thinking about what I am not doing. Yesterday is my worst enemy. Everyday before I get home think about what I didn’t do that day or didn’t do during the week. I’m my own worst enemy and I am making myself feel bad about myself. Stink.
We have to remind ourselves to be good to ourselves, reflect on what we’ve done and not look to what hasn’t been done. Remember to keep looking forward and start things. Not everything has to be completely formed when you start it. Not all strategy or jobs can be done in day. Sometimes just getting one sentence down, spending twenty-five minutes working or sitting in the quiet can get you going. This is as much for you as it is for me.
Keep pushing forward, keep pressing play and don’t focus on yesterday. Yesterday is gone and it’s not coming back. Yesterday’s are the very definition of sunk cost.
