|The first day is exciting, as you make all your amazing plans for world domination and let imagination fuel your wildest fantasies. |
Then the second day comes, and you realize that in order to achieve any of it, you’re going to have to sit down and do work.
A lot of work.
Suddenly all the dreams seem like they are an infinite distance away, and you can’t possibly do everything you need to do to achieve them.
My solution for getting out of this funk was just to do something, even if it wasn’t directly related to world domination. In my case, I did some personal financial administration stuff that I had been putting off for months because I was "too busy". Ha! Can’t use that excuse now! But after completing this task, I felt a bit better.
So I enabled my new jetcondo.com site and now it actually goes to the right place, although there still isn’t anything there yet. It takes time to build stuff! I also answered some questions on the Rockets forums (the web development framework I built)
Then I made a Facebook fan page for my first novel, Edge of Infinity, then converted and uploaded a copy of said book to Smashwords, and made a post on Google+ about it, just for fun.
So I did something, which was better than nothing. Still a long way to go, but at least I’m moving!
