I’ll Never Know Unless I Just Do

I’ll Never Know Unless I Just Do

I just have to do it……if not, I’ll never know.

Now what in the hell I’m talking about, you’re wondering.

Well, that basically pertains to anything, but I’m specific in this instance.

Right now it’s all about these 2 ideas for books that I’ve had for a while now.  I’m not convinced that the world ‘needs’ these two but, I’m sure it can fit in, in some people’s lives!

No, I’m not gonna tell you what the titles are…….you’ll steal my idea!!  I’m protecting my (not so)intellectual content.

They’ll be ebooks.  For sale thru iTunes, Amazon, and my website right here.  Maybe somewhere else.

But, I’ll never know unless I do.  Quit monkeying around!

I had a friend that was an extremely talented writer.  Amazing what she could do with words.  She never publish and she died with her dream.  Sad.  And I’m thinking about that right now.  My writings would never rival hers……nor the one’s on whatever ‘best selling’ list is out there.  But, I will have done it.  More than what most people ever do in their lifetime.

I’m anticipating both to be full of fun.

I was thinking yesterday with all my writings that I do I’ve probably got all the content I need for one of the books…..then I have to check and see just how much research I’ve done on the other to see how quickly I can get that one done.  You know, I may have stumbled upon a second career.  But, it has to be fun.

I’ll Never Know Unless I Just Do

Just to let you know…..I have started.  Apple has an iBooks Author app that I’m using.  Thus far I’ve not made any mistakes, but I’ve done no artwork or editing yet either……  So the fun has begun.  I have large totes full of content to pull from that I toted down here to Mexico with me.  I’m getting excited knowing that I’ve quite possibly have done all my work already.  Just some editing work.

I had another friend that’s a poet.  Over the past 10 years he’s been editing his book.  I’m not gonna take that long for editing.  As a matter of fact, I’m giving myself 100 days (I’m feeling presidential, you know the First Hundred Days thing) to get ‘er done.  I’m 10 in as of today……and I’ll be gone for the next 9 days and I won’t be able to bring anything from the totes……  Maybe I’ll birth some new content.

There’s a shot glass of tequila on the left side of my laptop and a cold beer to the right……..before I hit the beach, I’ll sift through some of my writings and get some work done and then upon my return.

The whole thing those is in the doing.

What is it that you want to do?  Have you started?  If not, what major obstacle is stopping you?  Do this for yourself……ignore the obstacle and start doing only what you can do.  Solutions to your obstacles (real and imagined) are just a bit down the adventure of ‘doing’.

I’ll Never Know Unless I Just Do

Me, I don’t have any ‘real’ excuses.  I just need to do!  I don’t have a time or financial restriction nor do I have any content or intellectual restriction.  Lack of confidence would be my hitch.  But, that will be overcome by doing.

Just because I’ll be writing for a limited audience doesn’t mean anything negative.

I sort of wish in a way that we could communicate about our endeavors……..but my thought is that it’s best not so that the doing can be done.  I have an tendency to focus on others rather than myself, and for now, I need to be the center of the universe.

Time-out for a sip.

Even this blog…..took a lot for me to do!  Who’s gonna read it?  How will I get readers?  Will I be able to make enough money to justify my time and pay a few expenses?  All had my attention before I started.  Then one day I made the decision to just start writing.  Along the way I took interest in optimizing my sight monetarily and readership wise.  I’ve still a long way to go.  But the fun of just doing this for doing it is where my desire is right now.

I think it’s the focus of fun and enjoyment that need to be driving what we do.  If not, we’re doing it for the wrong reason.

There’s this tendency to look at the financial rewards of doing things in life, rather than the raw pleasure that if founded in the doing.

I’m even looking at it in the way…..’what else am I gonna do?’, be a WalMart greeter?  I wouldn’t last a shift.  I’ve no other alternatives that contain fun and enjoyment.  So, I might as well do what’s churning inside.

The book…….(s).  I’ll write and publish the book(s).  One word at a time, one sentence at a time, one paragraph at a time, one chapter at a time, and finally one book at a time.

Peace, love, and beaches,
