Sometimes things that happen to you in life that seem pretty ordinary or down right bad at the time can be a catalyst for change in the future.
I’m in unchartered waters at the moment having never undertaken anything, anywhere near as ambitious a project as this in my entire life, but I’m giving it a crack – something that I would not have considered doing a year or so ago.
I have been working on my book for about 20 years now and most people who know me well enough (including myself) would probably have been thinking years ago “it’s never gunna happen”.
It’s not that I don’t have the passion or the knowledge it’s more or less that I have pretty much wasted my life over thinking about the possible negative outcomes to everything and after expending that much energy there has been very little left to tackle the project at hand.
People have been telling me for years to get out and do what you love and let the other stuff look after itself – looks like now is the time.
