Today is 10-9-11, which reads like an ACT math question: In the sequence 10,9,11,… what comes next? I like answer (d) Not enough information provided to decide. In real life we often have to make decisions based on historic patterns and our best guess as to what happens next. As I get older, jumping in with both feet first has been bumped down a few notches. Wait and see has risen to prominence. I wouldn’t call it “patience,” it’s more like the voice of experience.
It’s the voice that says all things in moderation. What I want to know is how do I give 110%, moderately? How can I get from “ALL or NOTHING” as separate choices to them being end points on a continuum, with optimum somewhere in the middle?
Guess I will have to let you know when I figure it out. Right now, I am focusing all of my resources on finishing my bestselling novel. My self-imposed deadline for words on the pages is November 15. Making goals public is supposed to embarrass people into doing what they said they would. We will see.
So, on this day in history, I gave myself 37 days to get ‘er done. No blogging ’til then. Happy Halloween, All Saints’ Day, All Souls’ Day, and Happy Birthday.
