I'm learning to balance my life. But I'm not perfect at it I assure you. I'm a work aholic so this is a little difficult for me to do. And while I don't think I've neccessarily found my wings in life so to speak, I do think that I'm on a better path than I was a year ago. I am learning to not only dream, but also to use my own two hands to make those dreams and passions realities.
Currently, I am pleased to say that one of the projects I'm working on is not neccessarily work related. I discovered though, that just like I am slow at writing in my novels due to the constant need to be attentive to all the details- I am also slow at putting together an outline that details this project because I'm putting a lot of thought into it.
My brain is continually asking what's the best way to do this, what things am I not looking at, how much monetary support will this take and what kind of budget should I be trying to realistically put together, who will manage it, how will we ensure that it will be successful, Do we need to start a team meeting of some sort to start the framework for this project, how do we realistically do that, and so on and so forth.
I've started to realize that one problem I need to overcome is my need to have every detail planned out and mapped. I have a hunch that this project is going to require some acknowledgement that at some point we are just going to have to give it a go and see what happens. But that is not until we at least have an agreed upon framework for how we want to present and implement this project idea. I will spill the details about the project once we've got it underway (which might take a lot of time), but I gotta tell you I'm really excited about it!
In other news, I've picked up two random books today at the Library. They are:
I'll let you know in a couple of days or so how these go. They look very interesting and thought provoking.
