Okay, I admit it. I signed up to be a blogger along with some of my coaching colleagues and, thus far, I have bordered on complete failure. One post, eons ago in cyber time. Sigh.
I have lots of silly excuses: I’m too busy. My website needs updating. I have a newsletter to get out. I have bills to pay. My office is so messy. It’s a nice day and winter is just around the corner — I’ll go for a walk and do it later.
Or the truly dis-empowering ones: Why would ANYONE bother reading MY blog? I don’t know what to write about! I’m boring. I’m stupid.
The biggest excuse: NO TIME. I don’t have time for blogs, how does anyone else have time? I truly don’t know. Yet people are blogging like crazy.
I remember a recent conversation with a client. His wife is a coach and when he complained to her that he didn’t have enough time to get his work done, she responded: “You don’t have time? Are you kidding me? That’s bulls—! You have just as many hours in each day as Bill Gates.”
I have no excuse. I like to write. I will write. Whether anyone reads it or not. My commitment is made, written in stone on “this here page here”. I will work through my phobia by facing my discomfort.
As Neale Donald Walsch says: Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
I am at the end of my comfort zone. Bring on LIFE!
PS …. I wonder what Bill Gates is doing right now?
I think Bill Gates is reading your blog! He is probably thinking, “Thank you, Cate, for taking the time!” :)..and so are the rest of us.
Love it, my dear. You inspire me! (And I’m subscribing to your blog … there’s a place to do just that at the bottom of this reply block. cool!)
