Your work is to keep cranking the flywheel that turns the gears that spin the belt in the engine of belief that keeps you and your desk in midair.
Writing feels exactly like that.
If I spend too long away from my novel, my chair and desk sink to the ground and I have to work really hard to get them aloft again. But if I keep at it, consistently, with discipline, employing a regular routine, the desk hovers where it should and the writing gets done.
I'm noticing the same thing about my yoga practice. If I go every day, or most days, it starts to feel like things are moving as they should. It's never easy, but it feels right. But if I miss a few days, it is that much harder to get back to the mat and find my groove again.
Perhaps this analogy applies to all things. It speaks to the magic of habit, ritual, and routine. How we apply them to our goals determines whether or not we stay aloft.
May we all keep our desks aloft on the projects that mean most to us!
