Having wobbles 🛥 #135

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve published an update! Thanks for supporting this and I appreciate that you continue to follow my journey.
It’s Sunday, and I’m getting ahead with some much needed content scheduling and finishing off from last week. I do it because I enjoy it, and I know I need to do it, but I do get the occasional, what I call “wobble.”
A wobble to me is when I lose focus. I get overwhelmed. I question what I’m doing and how I’m doing it. I get impatient and realise that I’ve got such a long way to go. Life stuff pops up too, such as an unexpected DIY job and a very dismal reminder of my current pension.
People will say that I need to chill, be patient. Don’t overdo it. What they don’t know is that I love this stuff and I do this to motivate.
My goals are unrealistic. There is no business plan. I have limited resources. I’m worried about creating mediocre things. Sometimes it gets too much, and like a child, I’ll have a little tantrum.
But I know I’m only in competition with myself. When I sit idle, I know I could be doing something purposeful.
Positivity, confidence, and persistence are key in life, so never give up on yourself. - Khalid
I learnt a long time ago, that the only real failure is giving up. So best open the MacBook, put on a Hero soundtrack and get working on those tasks.
Thanks for the support,
- Ross
