Try jumping in

creative perspectivesA blank page. An uncarved block of stone. The guitar you haven’t picked up in months. A long To Do list. An e-mail left unanswered too long. Scary, scary, scary things that require an action and effort. Easy to put off a little longer.

But be brave. Try your best! Dive in. Don’t think too long or hard about it; put pen to paper, chisel to stone, fingers to frets and see what happens. Make a mistake? So what? S’alright. Figure out how to fix the mistake or incorporate it into your project.

In Star Wars, Yoda says “Do, or do not. There is no try.” Although that could be interpreted as “do it right or not at all,” what I think he means is that trying is doing.

This week pick one thing you’ve been avoiding. Jump in and get it started. See where you go if you try.

What I’ve been avoiding is —- cleaning windows weeding the garden and —-, listen to a radio English program. From Octorber new version of it starts. SO I’m going to listen to it — from next month. too late?
