Stop Overthinking and Start

I am Massimo Curatella, and this is my DAY 2 Article in the CREAZEE Daily Writing Challenge.

It is also my 137th daily article.


Am I able to share my habit-building skills with others? What happens when I create habitually with a group of people? How can I improve my discipline of creating every day?

That is why I launched a collective daily writing challenge.

Writing makes me a better person. I think more, I think better. I am more productive, accountable, trusted by whom I relate to when I make a commitment, precise. I plan ahead more, I am more resilient when unexpected things happen.

But writing every day is hard. During the past weeks, I felt less and less motivated, not very original. My ideas started to be repetitive and losing freshness.

Quitting? Nah, impossible. It took me two years (twenty?) to reach this moment. It would be the worst waste of my life.

So what? Let’s double down and let’s make it a public challenge! I pictured myself in the middle of a group, in a square, all looking at me, waiting for me to write. This shock therapy works. Oh, humans if it works. I am now responsible for the motivation of, not one, but 15 people!

Try now to say you don’t want to write, you don’t have time. Work. Family. Sleep.

Try!

Stop overthinking and start. Create privately, at first, when you’re fluent and fluid, go public. You will learn unexpected things, you will discover unknown sides of yourself, you will want more.
