G is for Giving up

give upNo, I’m not giving up writing! But in order to get anywhere, we need to not only make an effort, but we also need to make hard decisions about what we must give up and what we’re prepared to give up.

You see, I don’t have a big hole in my time just waiting to be filled with new projects, so I need to make a hole, and that means giving something else up. It might be something that’s easy to give up, or something I have no choice about giving up anyway, but it might be something hard to give up.

Either way, there are sacrifices to be made, a price to pay. And that’s where we really fall down. Are we prepared to give up that hour’s reading and spend it writing instead? Are we prepared to give up time in front of the TV and spend it doing something constructive? Are we prepared to even get up early and sacrifice that extra time in bed?

The alternative to giving up something to make time for our dreams is very likely to be giving up the dreams themselves. So which matters more?
