We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action.” — Frank Tibolt

Isn’t it like the idea of inspiration prevents you from accomplishing anything?

Take writing,for example.

So many times everything stayed in the idea stage.

Those ideas were all lost like  a balloon bursting with disappointment, then disappearing.

So many balloons burst I decided to try and make some float into the restless sea of wordpress.

When I started to write them down, it was hard not to wonder if I was insane.

Lets have a look at some ideas, I wrote down :

  1. A world with a 30 day return on kids.
  2. You know what they say – a watched clock never boils
  3. Overbuying of cardigans.
  4. Standing on the toes of giants.
  5. Like when I lost an argument to my mirror – next day it seemed really smug.
  6. Nag-trocities  – I like this one. A neologism which labels extremely ferocious nagging.   Perhaps referring to Matilda the Hun.

 



 

This is what blogging seems to be for me.

I take one of those sentences above,sometimes combine them.

Do about 300 words, then press post.

My business brain works the same way. I am equally successful in both arenas.

  1. I don’t know about your other readers, but I think the 30 day return policy on kids needs further attention.
    Is it a no questions asked return? Or are there specific parameters…. screams all night and bites his mother? Acceptable reason. Looks like the milkman? Unacceptable. And what happens to the returnees? Are they delivered to other parents or heavily discounted and sent overseas?
