Audio: Not the right time

You do this too, right? You think: “I can’t do this now because it’s not the right time.”

Like, I can’t hang the pictures yet because we haven’t picked out the furniture. I can’t start the tv show yet. I can’t start writing that new song yet. I can’t be sober now, it’s not the right time. and yet, we all agree that waiting for perfection means that nothing gets done.

You don’t have to know what’s happening next, you just have to start. You figure things out in motion.

I’ve just recorded an audio for my weekly sober podcast thingy. And it’s all about perfectionism and me being unable to find the right time to start.

Below I’ve posted a 3.5 minute extract from the middle of the audio.

Please leave a comment after you listen to the extract and I’ll pick one comment to be my sober rockstar favourite comment of the day 🙂

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • “You just have to start” – so very true! Inspired by the London meet up, I met a lovely sober lady in Glasgow last night and we talked about this very thing. How we wanted to stop but there was a birthday/night out/Friday etc, so of course we couldn’t stop drinking until after that. The best thing for me was just starting and to deal with things as I encountered them x
