I have to be honest with you. I’m stuck.
For the past two weeks I have been struggling. Staring at a blank screen for hours. Banging my head against the preverbial wall. Writing the same sentence over and over again with nothing more than a slight change in the order of words. And with little more to show for it than a few pages of incoherent notes.
You see, I have something important to say. Really important. But I don’t know how to say it. Or perhaps I don’t quite know what “it” is. Or maybe I am just putting too much pressure on myself and that is causing me to get stuck.
It’s not a blog post. Those come pretty easy to me now. At least a lot easier than they used to. It’s not a book either. I wouldn’t pace the room like this over a long term project like a book. I would just shake it off and then get back to writing.
It’s something in between. Longer than a blog post and shorter than a book. But more important than both.
Like a manifesto. A mission statement. Or some type of grand statement. A challenge to both myself and the world.
It’s my Jerry Maguire moment. You remember that scene, don’t you? No…not the “show me the money” part. The other scene.
I’m not really sure how else to explain it. I just know it’s something big. And it’s something that I need to share. If I could only get it out of my head.
Slight Change in Plans
So, I know this isn’t the way it usually works. But today I need your help. Your advice. And your inspiration.
I need you to help get me unstuck. And in helping me here, maybe we can all help each other. After all, each of us has been stuck on something like this at some point in our lives, right? Maybe you’re stuck right now.
So if you have any advice to help “unstuck” me and anyone else out there that wants to do something important, something bigger than themselves, please join the conversation in the comments below. We all need you right now. Especially me. So don’t be shy.
And thanks for giving me the space here on this blog to not be perfect. To not always have to have all of the answers. To need your help and inspiration every now and then. And to feel comfortable enough to ask for it!
