In Flames, 5 Days of Fire

fss4Part 4 of reflections on Danielle LaPorte’s recent blog post titled “4 Lessons I Burned into My Soul While Creating The Fire Starter Sessions.”

The Fourth Lesson:

“Don’t worry about how you’re going to pull it off. Just start.”

Most writers have had at least one person say to them: “One day I’ll write a book.” But as we all know, one day never arrives. All there is, is today. If you want to write, write. Don’t worry about whether you can; as a famous shoe company would say: just do it.

Malcolm Gladwell discusses the “10,000-Hour Rule” in his book Outliers, a rule that essentially states the “key to success in any field, is simply a matter of practicing a specific task that can be accomplished with 20 hours of work a week for 10 years” (Wikipedia). So if it requires 10,000 hours to achieve mastery, today is the best day to begin.

Once you become a master of your craft (whatever that might be), the rest will follow.
