I actually did this when it first appeared in my email. Instead of going to look for it in one of my many notebooks, I’ll just do it again! I know the first time I did this, it was simply a very long list of the things I needed to do. I’m sure I could cross a few things off that list and add a hundred more, but the looming to dos don’t seem to be what comes to mind.
Earlier tonight, I decided to clean out my inbox and unsubscribe to a few things when I came across the Writing 201 workshop. Great I thought, I haven’t even finished 101 yet! I clicked the link and registered for Writing 201. Even though 101 is not prerequisite, I feel compelled to do 101 first!
Why do we feel the need to do things in order?
I’m thinking I need to do all of 101 before Monday so I can be caught up before beginning 201. My nature is that if I don’t get it done, I can’t begin the new workshop! I didn’t pay for the workshop and it’s not some kind of requirement so why do I do this to myself. I probably won’t get it all done before Monday, in fact I most likely won’t even come back to do Day 2.
My twenty minutes of free writing are up and I have to go to bed, but this is the most I have written in forever! I hope I will start 201 on Monday , even if I don’t get 101 done!
Maybe sometimes we need to just start improving from this moment instead of waiting to catch up before we can move forward.
