Recently, I was talking with my good friend, Ted. Ted and I are former baseball teammates and current tennis hitting partners. Ted is also a writer.
Earlier this week, Ted attended a writing workshop in New York City. A key point that he learned was about writer’s block.
His instructor said that when you have writer’s block, find an accountability partner and just write for three minutes. It doesn’t matter what you write, as long as you write…even if it’s the same word over and over.
I know what you are thinking, “How does this relate to me?”
If you don’t feel like writing, just write.
If you don’t feel like working out, just workout.
If you don’t feel like making sales calls, just make the calls.
It’s the start that stops most people.
I know many marathon runners and I often ask them what the most challenging aspect of running is. Their answer is…putting on my shoes.
I don’t care about your feelings, I care about your actions.
