|Erin's inspiration board|
I'm not sure that I agree with that entirely (mostly because I think that sometimes we all need to give ourselves a break for not being able to take on everything), but I do to a certain extent. It comes down to priorities really, and making sure that your goals are always top of mind. It's about figuring out HOW to make the most important things all fit, even if you have to adjust your game plan a bit to do it.
This morning's feature on the Everygirl (man I love that site) gave me a swift kick in the butt about that very same concept.
Erin from Elements of Style - one of the most popular design blogs out there - is featured, and she talks a lot about what you have to do to be a successful blogger, and how starting her blog was the catalyst to her entire career. One of the main things she stresses is that she has written every weekday for five years, and that it took more than a year of that for her to get any serious traffic.

So I'm going to try to tweak my process, because right now my posts are taking me an incredibly long time to put together. There's research and writing, but mostly it's picture editing in order to make things fit the dimensions of my layout. I'm going to try to spend less time fretting about the perfection of the look of each post and more time actually posting. And I'm going to set time aside every day to work on it. If it matters you make it happen, right?

And hey, I can use it as another excuse for why I "can't" work out...
