The Dip

I have, in the past month or so, struggled to find the time and motivation to publish to this blog for the first time since starting it back in March. I have, of course, thought about quitting altogether during this dry spell for fear of never finding anything else to write about ever again. I have since decided not to quit, but instead push through the dip.

From the book “The Dip” by Seth Godin:

If the journey you started was worth doing, then quitting when you hit the dip just wastes the time you’ve already invested.

This journey of writing and putting it out there has been worth doing, and it has proven so many times. I find great value and benefit in writing and sharing my thoughts, and the feedback I get is encouraging. So, after a few shaky weeks, I’ve decided not to quit, but, in order to make the time and spark motivation, I’ve realized the need to quit other things to make sure I can do this thing, and do it well. 

We all have to quit something. It’s deciding what to quit, and when, that’s the challenge.
