|Just a reminder that life is a lot simpler than we imagine it is!|
I almost didn’t write this blog post.
Why, you ask? Well, the answer is in the title. I suffer from analysis paralysis, which more often than not has me sitting motionless (ok, not really motionless), fretting. Fretting over all the things I have to do, all the things I want to do, and all the things I have not the time to do. Huh?
I have all the time I need. And I have much more time than a lot of other people do, being a self-employed, freelance copywriter. I have at least 10 hours each day to do as I like. After I do what needs doing. Definition of Analysis Paralysis: “The term “analysis paralysis” or “paralysis of analysis” refers to over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation, so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome.”-Wikipedia
Yup! That’s me.
But why did I almost not write this post?
Because I’ve now spent almost 2 weeks deciding on whether to buy a domain name, or just use the free blogger platform.
That’s right. Two weeks.
I could have written a dozen, or more blog posts in this time.
But, no. I wrote not a one.
Because I have been too busy fretting over whether to buy a domain name, and then worrying about the design of the website, and how much time it is going to take me to have it all set up, and how much time I will have to spend getting the fonts just so, and whether I even have a good enough eye to create a pleasing website, and whether I will just waste the $10 on the domain name because I will never update the blog, and … well you get the picture.
This morning I decided that enough was enough!
Therefore, I have written this post.
I am publishing it on my blogspot blog.
I will leave all the other worries for another day.
And the moral of this blog post is:
It is usually better to do something, than to only think about doing it. *
* Which is nothing more than a longer way of saying, “Just do it!”
[So as to avoid being too vague here, I am referring mostly specifically to finishing the first book (PROTECTOR) in my fantasy series (Anniversary of the Veil). I’ve completed the first draft in December 2009.I’ve finally managed the revision by July 2011. I want it published by February2012.]
