Do you have dreams of writing a book, too?
Surveys say that a lot of people want to write a book. However, only very few actually wrote and published books.
Why is that?
This could be a reason:
Yes, I really want to write a book. But I don’t think this is the right time. I’m still busy. Maybe when my business takes off. Or when I quit my job. Or when I’m not busy anymore. Or when I have more time.
Guess what?! You’ll never run out of things to be busy about.
When I quit my job, I thought I’ll have more time in my hands. True. I did have more time. Since I work from my home-office or my office walking distance from home most of the time, I didn’t have to brave the traffic which used to eat up about 3 hours of my time each working day!
But here’s the thing. More projects kicked in. More training opportunities for our training company. Speaking engagements. Travels. Toastmasters activities. Meetings. Etc.
In other words, I became busier than ever! So busy that sometimes I had to make a conscious decision to stop working and just be still. Relax. Recharge. Spend some quiet time in the Blessed Sacrament. Or go on a day trip to Tagaytay to breathe…
If you keep putting off doing the things that really matter to you, one day, you’ll look back and say, “I wish I did this years ago.”
Kim, there is no perfect time to write a book or to start that business or to do what you really love to do! There will always be challenges — like lack of time or lack of confidence or lack of skill or lack of money.
But you know what I learned? You have to decide to do it.
And then you take the first step. You just need to take the first step. And as you take that step, the next step unfolds, and then the next, and then the next. And before you knew it, you’re done writing your book.
