You gotta have the gotta wanna ~ Kevin’s Aunt Doris 🙂
There will be days when you sit down to write to your prospects and you do not have what Doris Freed called “the gotta wanna”
See if Friend of the 7-Second Email James Turner can help:
Maybe you’ve heard this quote from C.S. Lewis (the Narnia guy) before, but I hadn’t:
“We are always falling in love or quarrelling
Looking for jobs or fearing to lose them
Getting ill and recovering
Following public affairs.
If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavourable.
Favourable conditions never come.”
It makes me think of one of my favourite book titles ever
From Seth Godin:
What To Do When It’s Your Turn (and it’s always your turn)
I feel this is a reminder I need constantly
As my mind looks for reasons why it’s not quite
Not just yet
Time to start.
P.S. Wise words, my friend. Thanks for sharing. For more goodies like this, head on over to James’s One Creative Moment
