….begins with a single step!! Next in my line of favorite quotes is this one…
I signed up for the Blogchatter challenge with a lot of apprehension. The month of April is always an interesting one for me. Both my children’s exams get over that time. Their summer vacations begin that time too. If you thought, having small kids at home and working(writing) from home is hard, think again! Older kids are also a lot of work!! Many a time, I have two pairs of eyes always peeking into my laptop – wondering what I am going to be writing about next 🙂 They have their summer classes, entrance exams, play dates, and are constantly going in and out of the house with their friends…and you get the point…it is a busy house! 🙂
To top it all – we had also planned for short trips wherein I knew I would not have time to write posts then and there. How will I be able to manage writing 26 posts one for each and every day of April? (except for Sundays) I knew I had to take the first step and decide to do it. Then, I had to draw a plan. Yes, I am a planner and I have been able to stick to it so far, even though I have been traveling through the A2Z challenge.
So, how have I been able to do it so far? By taking the first step of deciding to do it. Yes, friends – ‘the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’ is so true for me for the #Blogchatter challenge and for many mammoth tasks too.
Once the first step was taken, all other activities have followed and I have got some direction on how to proceed and complete it.
The Blogchatter challenge runs all through April and it isn’t over yet. Wish me luck to complete it!
