Best Combo EVER!

It’s been quite a while since I posted on here, but like all of you, sometimes life and busy schedules get the best of you. And that’s one reason why I haven’t written anything in a while. The other reason is because I want to write quality content, and it seems I am lacking in ideas/inspiration. But then, I read a blog post from the Copyblogger (one of my favorite bloggers, by the way).

It was exactly what I was thinking. And then I found another delightful surprise. It was guest written by my OTHER favorite blogger, Robert Bruce! YES!!!!

It came out last week, and yes, I’m just now getting around to posting it. But I still don’t have time on my side this evening. So I’m gonna leave you with this gem. Note – none of this is me. I give all credit to Copyblogger and Robert Bruce, and I apologize that I’m using their content instead of creating my own.

So here it is…”Everything Will Conspire to Stop You, But So What?”

There are endless reasons and ways.

You’ve got three kids. You’ve got three teeth. The rent is four months past due.

You’re a big hit at the office. She left last week. The engine won’t turn over.

You just aren’t feeling it.

The wine went bad. Success arrived too fast. Success never arrived. You’ll lose their respect. You’re in the cancer game now.

That bus turned left, one block north.

You’ll do it tomorrow. The doubt, just behind your left ear. Thirty-three parking tickets.

Out of milk. The electric bill. What would Mommy and Daddy say?

Never went to college. Went to too much college.

The step onto a rotting board. Oversexed. Undersexed.

Et Cetera.

Et Cetera.

Et Cetera.

Everything will conspire to stop you. There are endless reasons and ways.

They are all common to everyone.

In the end you’ve got to pick up the pen and do the thing. And then you’ve got to do it again.

No matter the payoff. No matter the beating.

You are no different, better or worse, than any before you.

Their ink and blood ran in the gutter.

So will yours, if you want to finish this race.

So what?

And that’s that. Write on.
