“It’s Normal…


…To take a while” – Ira Glass

Do you feel like your goals are undefined and that you don’t know where you are going? Or are they defined but they are taking a while to accomplish them? It’s normal for something to take a while.

Picking up from my last post, after you’ve accomplished beginning a project, the next step is to simply keep going.

Right now, think of all the successful people who you admire or want to be like.

How old are they?

Here are a few of mine:

  • Amy Poehler
  • Jordan Matter
  • Kate Winslet
  • Kate Blanchet
  • Kristen Wiig
  • Tina Fey
  • Sarah Blackwood
  • Ira Glass

They are all thirty or older which tells me that beginning, moving forward and continuing on takes a while. So take heart, it’s normal to take a while to become good at our passions and for the people around us to see what we are capable of accomplishing.

Oh and lets not forget Julia Child. She was 35 years old before she even learned how to cook.

The single best thing you can do, is to keep. moving. forward.

Who are the people that motivate you to keep going?
