What’s your potential?

God knows how many times I’ve asked myself that question. I think the last time was last night at about 11:30. I was in the middle of revising the latest chapter to Wreck My Life and simultaneously cursing myself for being a hack and grousing over the latest setback to befall another project that I’ve been working on for over a year. Not a good place to be in when you don’t have a beer or bottle of red readily available.

Anyway, while settling into my daily Internet routine I came across the following post on Zen Habits. While I normally don’t dig the self-help thing (seems like a lot of clever writers using clever marketing to sell to the impressionable masses) this post actually made sense.
