Excuses For An Unimaginative Life

Another post for any of you out there who want to create something of your own, but claim you're too busy and can't find the time:

Can you tell me, with a straight face no less, that you don't have the ability to dedicate a mere 30 minutes a day to a specific creative project?

You mean to tell me you'd rather spend that time the way you've always spent it--on your everyday life? How's that going for you?

Are you really that unimaginative?

If you take tiny steps towards a clearly defined goal, and take those tiny steps relentlessly, you will accomplish that goal. It doesn't matter what the goal is: a novel, a new blog, a short story collection, a collection of music compositions, a series of one-act plays. Whatever discipline or passion you choose, it will get done.

Define your goals clearly and take action--every day. Remember, these are your life dreams. Why aren't you more relentless about them?
