Health Activist Writers Month Challenge,  Lessons Learned,  Shout outs

Just Post Something

So, today is day 8 of the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge and today’s prompt is: Best conversation I had this week.

For some reason or another, I’ve struggled with writing a response to this prompt today.  When I tweeted that fact earlier today and a brief exchange between Kerri, Ashley & I followed.

Not the most exciting of conversations, but I did get a reminder that I needed.  The point of #HAWMC is to write every day.  The prompts are there to inspire us; to help get us started.  Some times they help.  Some times they don’t.  If it not, find something else to write about.  Just post something.

Honestly, I think that’s why I never seem to complete these blogging events.  The perfectionist in me wants to respond to every one of the prompts.  And I get overwhelmed by trying to do that and eventually just stop.

Now that I think about it, I’m reminded of a bit of advice that I’m always hearing from someone at work, yet never seem to remember.  I’ll leave you with it.

“Never let the quest for perfection keep you from getting the job done.”

PS: Thanks, Ashley!  🙂
