In Case You Missed It:
I started recording some short videos each day to take you along the creative journey of writing a book and pursuing creative dreams. You can subscribe to my YouTube Channel or Like my page on Facebook to get them.
What Great Entrepreneurs, artists, and leaders who make it know: Small Steps Every Day are better than big steps “when you feel like it.”
Ever wonder how some people are able to create so much? How they are able to produce consistent work? The key is that they do the work every day, whether they feel like it or not. Even if it’s just a little bit at a time, it’s better to be consistent than it is to do a lot one day and then nothing for a week. Jim Collins calls this the “20 Mile March” and it’s a great concept for reaching the NorthPole, it’s also great for doing the work you’ve been called to do. This is the best way to stay in shape. This is the best way to write a book. This is the best way to start a side business. This is the best way to read 50 books this year.
This week’s focus: Carve out 30 minutes a day, each day, to work on something you’ve been putting off. Real artists don’t wait for inspiration before they work. They start working and eventually the inspiration comes.
Verse I’m meditating on: Colossians 3:22-25. This is from the Message translation and I love it! “Don’t do shoddy work. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work.” I love, love, love, love this! We can’t write off mediocre or bad work and ask for grace since we are forgiven by grace. In all reality, we should do even better work because of grace. One of the best ways to do better work is to show up each week!
