Work versus blog!

I'm inundated in work, and having a blast, but knowing this blog is sitting here is a tad frustrating.

When I started the web site, I said I would not blog, as I didn't want the pressure. But it is one of the best ways to communicate, and as I work with strangers, I caved.

Although I have this feeling that I should write here often, my head tells me my heart is wrong. To be successful, you need to focus on what matters. To me this means: fulfilling my appointments with current clients, and meeting my magazine, newspaper, and novel deadlines.

My head tells me blogging is an extra. If it doesn't happen, it's not a big deal.

My heart kicks in and whines, "But...but... we want to be perfect!"

And that's where stress comes from.

So if you don't see me updating my blog, it's because I'm being sensible.

If you're stressed, why not examine your life and see if there's something you're doing that's not essential? Because being perfect is an impossible goal. Being happy is a perfectly possible goal. You just need to see your head and your heart in context.
