Getting to the chair is most of the battle

by Christopher Ryan

With the start of 2022, one of my priorities is increasing productivity. I even created a daily schedule for myself. While adhering to that schedule has not been perfect, there has been one undeniable success: more productivity.

It has become clear to me yet again that as long as you get to that chair, that writing space, and open the laptop, or turn on the computer, or pick up the pen, you will write.

It does not matter what gets you there, as long as you do, and as long as you begin. And it does not matter whether that writing is perfect. Quality can come later, the process is now, doing the job is all.

So don’t worry about perfection, or the amount of work ahead of you, or whether it will be published, or win awards, or any of that nonsense. Just do whatever needs to be done to get to that chair. You don’t even need to sit. You can stand in front of it, as long as you write.
