That face completely sums up my feelings this morning when I woke up and realized that I broke the chain.

That’s right – I BROKE THE CHAIN!

For the first time all year – all 18 days so far – I had written a considerable amount. Some it even usable here or as possible material – but not yesterday.

Was I honoring MLK? No. Was I busy doing things around the house? Nope. Did I fall and hurt myself – get trapped under something heavy? Not even close.

I Just FAILED to write – anything – at all – all day. I don’t even think I wrote my name…no, not even that.

But you know what?

I am over it now and – look – you’re reading this so clearly I wrote today!

So what happens when you break the chain? You start a new one.

Hopefully with more enthusiasm and drive to not FAIL again but knowing that if you do the world will not end – you won’t lose your friends…well…not all of them. And no one will revoke you executive access to all things chocolate – that was my big worry.

The thing I have to look at is this – was this mu ONLY goal? No and I am doing just fine on those. I had a bad day. It’s over.  Time to move on to today.

Yes – my writing goal for the year was to not miss any days but I did and now that I have a “miss” out of the way I can move on and look forward to a length of chain twice as long and 400 times as useful.

Why 400 times? Why not?

Coming Friday – a Preview of the comedy workshop I am starting Saturday.

Y’all keep the acorn spinnin’



What do you do you when you fail or fall short of a goal? Do you quit all together claiming it was never going to happen again or do you brush yourself off and start working on the new chain? Let me hear from ya.
