Starting is half the battle

“I bought a book about how to overcome procrastination but I haven’t got round to reading it yet” – that’s an old joke, but in my case it’s almost true. I’ve been kind of stuck at chapter 3 of “The NOW Habit” for a couple of years or so (it’s a good book by the way, go buy it and then leave it on your bookshelf unopened).

I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for years, but more recently I keep thinking of things I want to share, so here it is finally – better late than never?

The title is copied straight from this inspirational website which I really identify with – most of my best work is done when I should be doing something else.

Anyway I promised myself I wouldn’t let my perfectionist streak get in the way of hitting “Publish Post” for the first time, so that’s it for now…

    Nice one! That should be interesting.

    I also notice that you use blogger instead of writing your own blog software in an obscure language.

    I also think the most important thing is to post something and you can always make it look nice later.

    Now I just have to post more frequently myself 🙂

    I also like the syntax highlighter, I shall make use of that too.

    Being a perfectionist is a problem but like any problem it has a solution. You can always improve your attitude towards things and people by accepting the fact that nothing in this world is fully right or fully wrong. Each person, thing or event has both a postive and negative aspect. What we need to do is focus on the positive aspect and accept the negative aspect the way it is. Definately we need to work on imroving the negative aspect but only as much as it is in our capacity. Rest we can leave as destiny.
