You have to do this, have to do that.
I understand that yes, there are some things that “have” to be done to get other things…done. But it seems to me that all these “Have Tos” are really piling up.
I may not have to write a book, but if I do I have to do it right.
I have to outline all I write.
I have to not only do a blog…but have to do it a certain way.
I have to post every day.
I have to be on all social media (not just one or two, but all of them).
I have to be an expert on all social media.
I have to own a cell phone.
I have to have a smartphone.
Have to respond to e-mail within a certain immediate timeframe.
I have to volunteer my free time.
I have to do all marketing and promotion if I get a book deal.
I have to get the right publisher.
I have to not use those publishers who buck the system and aren’t traditional in their methods.
I have to be everything to everybody.
I have to HAVE TIME TO MYSELF.
And do we wonder why everyone’s so dang stressed, depressed, overworked? Not smiling any more? Curt with everyone? So frigging spun up all the time and hooked on all manner of stimulants…and depressants?
Hey-zoos Chris-tos! What the hell’s the matter with all of us?!
