In my last blog, I promised to write about results. I thought I’d write and post it the following week. Well, it’s taken me awhile to get it done. I could say that I got really busy with business, life, whatever…
The truth is I jammed my creative writing. I wanted the piece to be really good. After all, I am a results coach and this is my hallmark, so it had to be an insightful, meaty, right to the point, an oh-my-God-I’m- glad-I-read-it piece.
As much as I wanted and tried to write it, it was just not good enough. I became frustrated and picked at it repeatedly. Still for as much as I worked it, it wasn’t right. So, I let it alone for a while. I thought that it might improve like steeping a good cup of tea.
The ‘letting go’ gave me a little distance from the issue and that’s when I figured out what happened and this failure turned into a blazing enlightenment. I saw how easily we, as human beings, can be stopped by putting too much pressure on ourselves. The pressure, in my case, was too high an expectation for the blog article.
Yea, I wanted it to be good. But “Too Good” was my stopper.
What I realized is that I just have to write the article as best I can at that moment and let it go. Let others read it and have their thoughts, feelings, and opinions about it.
So, with that said, I’ve now re-committed myself to write a weekly blog. In these posts, I’ll reveal my insights and enlightenments of my most recent and critical results research in a way that’s easy to read, digest, and apply.
Talk to you soon,
