Giving yourself to the work



I came across a list by Eric Maisel, on the blog of Marla Beggatta. Eric is the author of Fearless Creating. I had the whole night to myself to paint and I spent the time doing bills and laundry and organizing and scheduling.  All important, but not the work I planned to do. Work fail!  I printed and hung this on my wall.  Maybe I can someday work when I plan to!

·  Working means caring for the work.
·  Working means not thinking so much.
·  Working means starting.
·  Working means doing what you'd planned despite disturbances.
·  Working means working when you don't want to.
·  Working means working when you're sad and ecstatic and everything in between.
·  Working means being present for the work.
·  Working means letting go of all distractions but the work.

·  Working means manifesting drive and direction.
·  Working means believing in unlimited possibilities.
·  Working means believing there are no limits.
