When I started this blog, I was looking for a place to write, find my voice and test my work by placing it where others can read it. If you have been one of those people, thank you. I feel incredibly honored that you took the time to read my posts when you could have been doing other things.
I had a goal when I created this space of posting once a week. At first, it was easy. There was so much out there to write about, so many topics on which I had an opinion. I couldn’t wait to share my thoughts. Then it got more difficult. I felt the pressure of a self-imposed deadline. I started to rush to meet my goal, while still struggling to create good content. I wrote a lot of “half blogs”. That’s when the struggle – and the stress – began in earnest.
Over the last month, as I have set goals for my book and new business venture, I have come to the realization that I cannot do each of these things, plus post regularly on my blog, without sacrificing something. And I don’t want to sacrifice the quality of my work, nor do I want to lose the hard-earned balance between my work and personal lives. So, I may have to adjust my goals a bit.
I will continue to post here while focusing more on the quality of what I share rather than the frequency. I will also post things that inspire me in some way, as well as announcements on my book and new venture, on my Facebook page, Get InSpiroad. I invite you to follow me there as well.
I know some people won’t understand. That’s their opinion – and it’s none of my business. For those of you who can relate, don’t be afraid to re-evaluate your goals as your life changes. We have to be able to adjust. And if that means you need to miss a goal, or readjust a deadline, that’s OK. Forgive yourself, learn from it and move forward with the lessons.
I’ll be right here rooting for you.
