Not that I’m at that level or anything, but if I were paid to write a blog things would change drastically. Last week I didn’t write a single blog.
I just didn’t feel like it.
And I’m ok with that. This is supposed to be fun, and the moment it turns into an obligation I’ve likely vacuumed the soul right out of it. And don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about. How many times have you just wanted to do what you wanted to do? How many times have you just not felt like doing whatever it was that you were supposed to do?
Problem is, the world doesn’t care about your feelings. It wants results, and it never sleeps…never stops wanting you for something. So how does one cure lethargy? Because there’s no room for it here. Some people push through and flirt with burnout. Others rewrite the rulebook to include some margin and disappointing results.
The cure, I think, is hidden in the balance of the two.
