The dreaded blank page.

When attempting to bang the first key, excuses invade my brain like blood rushes to an open wound.

Perhaps your blank page appears more like uncharted territory—a new job or opportunity, a redesigned eating or exercise plan, or dealing with circumstances not of your choosing—all requiring a “bang of the first key” to move forward.

Enter Jeff Goins’ pithy post Get Over It.

If, like me, you find yourself making excuses to begin whatever process lies before you, I encourage you to read Jeff’s post, to pray for strength (after all, no amount of willpower trumps the Spirit’s) and then bang the first key.

Excuses, begone!
