No matter how interesting the subject or how much I want to dive into it. Every time I start a new book the process is still the same – skip to the end and see how long it is.
Even if it’s one I’m dying to read, the onset of reading a book is always a bit daunting to me – as though I’ll never get there, never make it – so why bother.
This has actually prevented me from reading in the past to the point that I would have books pile up on my desk. I didn’t know that I was doing it, but there I was – positively procrastinating.
It’s a page, you turn the page, you get to the next one, you turn that page you get to the next one.
Like a project.
Like a race.
Like a new idea.
But the key is to start, and that will always be the hardest part.
