“If the book is true, it will find an audience that is meant to read it.”
Getting started, getting done, the book failing. Those were some of the comments to the question asked in a forum:
What is your one Biggest Fear when it comes to writing?
Here I share Flaunted excerpts of the many who chimed in:
- Getting stared
- Blindness, Alzheimer’s, other
- The fear of getting done and the book failing
- Fear of being criticized rather than being critiqued
- Getting half way through a second draft and realizing the story won’t work
- Writers block
- That I spend painful hours at the computer and produce garbage
- Fear that my historical search won’t be accurate
- Letting people read what I write
- No one reading it. No one liking it
- Finding a new idea
- Not finishing
- That they’ll just sit there forever never selling more than a few hundred copies and my life will be wasted with nothing to show for it
- That I’m putting in a lot of work in with not a lot of return
- No sales
- Lost in back-story
- That I am not any good
As a writer, do you share any of these fears? Any missing? Do share! We’d love to hear!
Movies inspire. Some make you laugh, angry, sad, sentimental or even throw a Tantrum because we are disappointed as in the ending of the movie Avengers Infinity War. Here are 9 Movies That Inspire
But the movie that touched my heart and changed my life was John Q which dealt with the state of healthcare, its contribution to life and its salivating existence to those in need. I worked in pharmaceutical for many years then went to make a difference managing several of medical centers across South Florida.
That’s my story. I’m serious about helping others. I’m not all talk. Let’s connect if you need help.
What about you? Are there any movies that have inspired you to take a turn to do something different in your life? Do share. We wanna hear.
People waste years trying not to waste hours. ~Michael Lewis.
Is that for real? Is being lazy a good thing? That’s what Michael Lewis said in this INC article why being lazy makes you successful. He argued that being lazy is the key to Success. But is it for real? Lewis achieved much in life so I’d hardly say he was lazy.
However, what I’d say is that he focused on things that were in fact important, and did not spend time being busy… for busy sake.
Deplete. Admit it…many of us are like that… especially the type A’s. If ever we find ourselves not doing anything we feel as guilty as ever. I have a colleague who broke her leg during a vacation trip and she found it like hell to be sitting in recovery…not being able to do the things she wanted to do.
So I encourage you the next time you find yourself being busy, look around you and ask the question, “is this adding value to my life…to my long term goals and dreams?”
If not, let it go. Refocus.

Water…a necessity for life. For living. We can’t do without it.
I love the different forms water comes in. It may be the river, the sea, the tap, waterfall, canal, stream; it may even appear through bursts of lightening and thunder!
Water though essential to living can also be extremely dangerous. It gives life and it can take it. Should we be afraid? No, not at all. As with many things in life, it’s our approach that counts. Either we care for it, plan for it, or neglect it as in hurricane Warnings and suffer the consequences.
Today, may we bask in the comfort and delights of magical streams. Let’s dream. Let’s reflect and achieve.
Don’t you just love it when things come together? Sure you do!
I recently came across my eVision board created 5 years ago. It was very satisfying to see that I had accomplished almost everything on the list. Some things included 2-4 year big and Micro goals for me and my girls.
As I reflected, it all came back to me. It was clear that dreams don’t come through unless we:
- Write them down
- Create a plan to achieve them
- Work, work, work ’em Goals
- Be resilient when the going gets tough
- Devise ways to maintain your motivation. That’s a must
- Reward yourself along the way as you progress
- Learn to breathe, mediate, pray
- Celebrate the final outcome
Years ago a Medical Director for a healthcare facility stressed that we must be sure to mark every milestone. I adopted that piece of advice and encourage you to do so too. It may be an anniversary, a birthday, or when a chapter comes together. All must be marked. In so doing we avoid being Inefficient to capture the saying that if we’re not measuring then we’re just practicing.
Dreams do come through if you work hard.

Step out of your comfort zone into Uncompromising Wonder
Soft Skills – personal attributes that enable someone to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people.
- Culture Fit
- Growth Potential
Soft-Skills The Meaning defined
Adaptability refers to the capacity to be modified for a new use or purpose. Culture fit indicates the alignment of behavior between individual and organization. Collaboration is the action of working with someone to produce or create something. Leadership entails the action of leading a group of people or an organization . Growth potential considers the potential an individual has to grow in an organization as their rising stars. Prioritization is the ability to put things to be actioned in order of importance.
Don’t be a Rube, consider these soft skills. Do some self-reflection. How do they compare when you reflect on your relationships at work, off the job, with friends, relatives, with your family and even while networking. If you find yourself lacking in area, take the time to improve. It will be worth it.
