As you near project completion, the voices creep in…

statue of man thinking and worrying

You can’t finish this. Just leave it be. No one’s going to care anyway. You’re not going to be a published author. No one’s going to care.

The above excerpt from a Medium post by Christopher Connors, [Don’t Fear Your Doubts and Insecurities — Let them Drive Your Life] reflects the uncertainty he felt as he was editing the final chapters of his book.

Two additional points from Connors’ post

“Fear and insecurities are given life by the voice inside our heads.”

“Please. Do what you want. Go after what you want with maximum effort and energy.”

Read this valuable piece. If you’ve not experienced these doubts, I sincerely envy you. And if you have, well, welcome to the club!

    1. Good question. I probably didn’t emphasize Connors’ response to those voices, including, “Please. Do what you want. Go after what you want with maximum effort and energy.” Thanks for reading and commenting!
