Sometimes Stubborn Just Doesn’t Cut it

I’ll admit, I finish more books because I’m stubborn and I have a deadline. Others are waiting on me. I hate to be kept waiting—a genetic trait in our family is to arrive early or you’re late.

Then there’s the writing thing.

Yeah, I apparently am the world’s worst employee. I don’t listen to anyone, not even me. I’m not this way at my day job. I plan, execute, and clean up. Everything is done well before it needs to be done. Finished, tied with a bow, no problem.

That’s discipline.

I need to be disciplined in my life if I ever expect to transition from the day job to the writing job. But I started writing to escape the day job in science. Now it’s a fine division between the two sides of me. So how would one go about upping the discipline while tempering the stubbornness?

I haven’t a clue and what’s worse is my stubborn side is refusing to research a potential solution.

What’s the saying? If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. How about if it is broke, I could use duct tape and strap myself to a chair and force myself to write. Well it is a new month. Maybe I’ll start to make writing regularly a habit.

Then again, I wouldn’t want to interrupt my good intentions at the beginning of a work week:D
