If you could wave a magic wand to look and feel as awesome as you know deep down you’d REALLY like to be, would you do it?
Most people “lie” to themselves when they think about how happy they are. They say, “Well, things are okay. I shouldn’t ask for too much.”
What they don’t realize is how much they are tolerating. How little they are settling for. They keep lowering their expectations, without even realizing they are putting a lid on their happiness.

If you’ve ever wanted to accomplish something important to you (but you didn’t know where to start) let me say 3 things about this book-writing adventure that may help you.
1) Ask for help. I have a habit of not asking for other people’s help. I take a “put on your big-girl pants and get it done yourself” approach to most everything. But pretty quickly into the book project I realized I was going to have to suck it up and ask for lots of help.
First, a writing buddy for accountability — Coco Rosenblatt-Farrell, my playful, wise friend. Next, a graphics designer for the layout (enter Kari Whitaker at Launchpad Creatives, who made it all look beautiful and fun). Having someone read a draft seemed like a good idea, so Nancy signed on, sharing constructive comments. Over lunch, Dori Decamillis fed me helpful tips on publishing and marketing. Jane (gotta love it — she’s a best-selling author) gave me stellar advice on the title. Gee whiz! I didn’t know I needed (or had) so much help.
2) Let it take the time it takes. Give the project some air and room to grow. Wander through book stores looking for ideas. Get out your colored markers and doodle words and images. Don’t keep your dream a secret – listen to the way it evolves as you tell other people about it. Keep an index card in your pocket to jot down thoughts that come to you when you’re walking or digging in the dirt or filling your car with gas.
Of course, given too much time, the thing won’t ever get done. That’s why you also need #3…
3) Set up a structure for making progress. You don’t need a 40-page planner. What you really need is a framework that works for YOU, so you’ll take steps toward your goal. For the book, we wrote chapter headings and a list of the features we wanted to include. Coco and I live in different states, so we scheduled phone sessions when we shared what we had written and edited it on-the-spot with Google Docs .
Two quotes to keep in mind:
Progress is better than perfection.
All life asks of us is measurable progress in reasonable time. ~Jim Rohn
4) Okay, just one more tip. Inspire yourself with something tangible. When I first realized I wanted to write a book, I took a paperback from my bookshelf, printed Lee Irwin, author in a pretty font, pasted it on the front cover and placed the book on my desk where I saw it every day.
Sleeping Bear Dunes in Northwest Michigan is a place to be reckoned with. I visited the park with my boyfriend one summer when I was in my twenties. I wore a pair of flip-flops and gripped a 12-oz bottle of water. Eyeing the first dune, it occurred to me that maybe I should have done my homework. It was a monster dune, peaking at about 150 ft .
We trekked up the dune, and then down the other side. Sixteen minutes walking in soft sand. No problem. We were rewarded with a second dune, equally intimidating. Another quarter of an hour. Already the water had run out and my feet were blistered where they slipped off my sandals onto the hot sand.
Still, the first three or four dunes were fun. The next five to eight were challenging. My calves and glutes burned as hot as the sand. After that, I hardly remember. Every time I reached the top of a dune, I expected to be rewarded with a view of the lake. Instead, I faced another dune.
Only sheer will, or stubbornness, kept me going. I would not turn back before reaching Lake Michigan. I lost count of the number of dunes. Straight up, straight down, the final one peaking at over 400 ft.
Later that night, as I nursed my blisters, my boyfriend rattled on about the continental glaciers that had spread south from Canada, eventually forming the dunes we had climbed. He marveled at the vast and unique contours seen from atop each dune and wondered at the beach grasses and sand cherry that grew there.
In my single-minded determination to reach the great lake, I hadn’t seen it. Not any of it.
I had forgotten a simple truth. “It’s not the destination so much as the journey.” Captain Jack Sparrow/Pirates of the Caribbean
