Why is it so hard to write a post? There’s so much I want to say and so many things I want to share to the world, which could possibly improve the lives of others,yet I procrastinate.
There is every reason to be inspired and motivated. There is every reason to be determined. But there is so much in my mind. So many competing things that are all necessary and urgent. How do I prioritize? Where do I begin?
Work tasks are priority because they have clear deadlines that needs to be met. Work is what pays the bills. Work provides immediate feedback to my performance; hence, work commands my attention.
Writing? Well, there is no clear deadline imposed by anyone. It doesn’t necessarily pays the bills; not immediately anyways. Writing doesn’t provide immediate feedback either, because it takes a while to develop a fan base, and the final product doesn’t produce income immediately. In fact, in most cases, it takes years to generate income! Writing, which I hope to monetize by writing an eBook someday, has the potential to provide an income base when fans and followers translate become a paying customers.
Lastly, writing is an outlet for my emotions and a medium to feel a sense of fulfillment—ultimately, it is rewarding. But it’s not priority! That’s why I procrastinate. That’s why I’m not why as much as I want to. That’s why I’m not motivated to write more. Work competes with my passion to write and share to the world.
What must I do at this point?
