LINK: The first step is to start

Off the topic

Sometimes when I find something in the internet that is really interesting and inspiring, normally I'd like to write a blog post about it, but then I may get lazy and just somehow give up or totally forget it. That's one thing I want to improve.

So from today I'm gonna try this "light weight" post, just share a link and perhaps plus one phrase of my comment. Sure it could be done in a tweet, but I just wanna keep it in my blog.

The first step is to start

The first step is to start by Jason Z. of 37signals

Many times the reasons we don’t start something have nothing to do with lack of skills, materials, or facilities. The real blockers are self-criticism and excuses.

Totally non related to the quote above...but if you read the link you'll understand what am I talking about next..

When I was a child I used to draw a lot, I still remember an afternoon in Summer I just sit there and kept drawing for 5 hours, I was completely in the "flow", if I put it in the current popular terms, and totally forgot how could time pass so fast. I also organized an event to get my friends together in a weekend to draw together, at that time I was trying to draw my own manga story of Doraemon. But when passing into adolescence I didn't remember why but somehow I stopped drawing.

Oops that is more than "one phrase" =_=;;
