I follow several writers’ blogs that constantly offer useful, practical and inspirational advice. Today, I saw a post from Seth Godin that nicely summed up the truth about pursuing a dream.
It would be great to be picked, to win the random lottery, to have a dream come true. But when we rely on a wish to get where we want to go, we often sacrifice the effort that might make it more likely that we get what we actually need. Waiting for the prince to show up is a waste of valuable time, and the waiting distracts us from and devalues the hard work we might be doing instead.”
Thanks for the reality check, Seth.
Gonna get back to work now–there’s a novel waiting in the wings.
