Over the course of this year, I have been focusing quite a lot of my time on writing a novel. It is something I have always wanted to do, and so I’ve decided to just do it. Though, with that comes a whole lot of this versus that. I work a full-time job, I like to spend time with loved ones, I cook every so often, I go to gym and blah blah blah.
How can you make time for the things you want to do while keeping up with the things you have to do? That’s a recurring question in my life, and the answer is simple.
Just do it.
I could give you a laid out plan of how to cram something into your long to do list, but it’s safe to say that if you want to do something, you will do it. Case and point.
And that might mean that some days you might have push certain things to the wayside, and other days it’s just impossible to make it happen, but life is about seizing every opportunity you possibly can.
That’s really all I can do. I write on the train, on my break, when I’m semi watching Netflix or moving on the elliptical. When an idea or concept comes to mind, I write it down — because who’s to say I will remember it later?
And some days or weeks or several weeks I might not feel like doing any of it, but I do it anyway because I know that it is a goal of mine, and I will not stop until I achieve it.
God has taught me that it’s one thing to say you want something, but it’s another thing to actively work towards that something that you want.
So go after it. If it doesn’t work out, it doesn’t work out. At least you can say you gave it your best shot.
