Blog-a-phobic

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?

  1. 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.
