That said, being productive need not entail conquering mountains of work. This is another thing I've realized to be true, for myself at least. Sometimes less is more. When I turn off my whiny self and just write, I find I have things to say, and all I really needed to do was get that one paragraph out. That one paragraph can sometimes be sufficient to solidify an idea, give it some curves, and establish the basis for what's to come. It's amazing how such a small amount of effort--real effort-- can kick start the idea generators in our minds. So, if all it takes for me to feel more productive generally, is to start with a few words here and a few there, why do I whine about it--on Facebook!?
Here's to that first paragraph!
"Little by little, one walks far."
