What To Do When You Just Don’t Know What To Do


It has been almost a month since my last post on my site.  That is the longest break from writing that I have taken since I began blogging earlier this year.  The break has been intentional by no means.  So much has been going on in my life, and the life of my family that I have gotten completely off track with my writing.

Knocked off course

Some of the greatest experiences in my life have happened over the past month, as well as some of the most challenging experiences in my life.  And a lot in between.  I’ve had a lot on my mind, and typically I’d write about it.  But for some reason I didn’t.  The title of this post sums it up best.  I just didn’t know what to do (or write).  So I’m taking my own advice and just doing something.  In this case that something is writing.

Lessons in everything

I’ve learned from my experience as well as other people’s experience is to do something everyday.  If you are trying to get in shape, then do a physical activity everyday.  Even if you don’t know exactly what to do, just do something.  If you have a dream to be or do something, then do something that will help you reach that dream every single day.

The time is now

You many not have a plan perfectly laid out, you may not even know how to finish the job, but do it anyway.  Do it, make mistakes, and learn a lot from it.

So today, here I am writing, because I just needed to write.  Tomorrow I will do the same, the next day, the day after, and so on.  And I believe doing this will get me back in the swing of writing.  It will get me back to delivering helpful content that will give you something, encourage you, and teach some valuable lessons in life.

Question:  What do you do when you just don’t know what to do?
