I'm DOING This

Why am I doing the Your Turn Challenge?

I need a swift kick in the butt. Often. I get complacent and go on autopilot and avoid THE DOING as long as possible. Not because I don't want to DO, but because there are usually a million reasons I can think of why THE DOING can't be DONE because it's JUST NOT RIGHT YET. This is the trouble with being a procrastinator with a perfectionist complex.
The result of all this avoiding is that very little ever gets DONE and then all THE UNDONE piles up and threatens to swallow me whole with their overwhelming massiveness of UNDONENESS.

It's messy and anxiety inducing and all the guilt I feel every time I encounter another UNDONE project, blog post, chore, task, want, need has gotten out of control. Enough is enough. I don't want to be surrounded by THE UNDONE any longer. I want to DO the DOING.

The Your Turn Challenge came at a perfect time for me. I am ready for change. Ready to change. Ready to be a DOER who gets things DONE - a WRITER who WRITES. Even when it is not ideal.

The accountability piece of this challenge appeals to me. The social pressure of everyone knowing whether or not I am DOING or allowing it to become another UNDONE is exactly what I need.

The Challenge: A blog post every day for 7 days. Alright, let's DO this. Day 1 is DONE.
