Speak Less by Laura Kimball

What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and in intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness. It is the harder, because you will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know I. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I once received a fortune cookie that read: “Speak less of your plans, you’ll get more done.” What’s one project that you’ve been sitting on and thinking about but haven’t made progress on? What’s stopping you? What would happen if you actually went for it and did it?

(Author: Laura Kimball)

This project really is something that I am interested in, but I just can't bring myself to go here online.  I know that I have shared lots and lots of personal things here, but I feel so strongly that I can't answer these questions in a format like this. I read the questions daily and I think about what I might want to say, but I don't want to say it here.  Feeling a little frustrated, but it is my own barrier that is holding me back. Sigh.
