Today’s podcast is about how to get yourself to do what you know you should be doing. Ok, it’s really about how I don’t do what I know I should be doing, when I should be doing it. Looking for the Music, Waves and sounds I use for inspiration and focus? Click this Link —> CLICK HERE!

TRANSCRIPT of the Podcast:
Hi everyone, I’m Tommy Balassa. My apologies for today’s podcast being late.
I recorded Episode 0003 a month ago but refused to upload it, because I was worried listeners would think it was stupid because it wasn’t scripted and my vocabulary wasn’t clear, it just sounded bad.
I’m not doing things I enjoy during the week and by the time Friday gets here for my “CREATIVE DAY” I’m worn out and don’t feel creative and end up asking myself “What’s the point?”.
By the time Sunday rolls around I have family commitments to deal with, though I could fit it in if I needed too, but instead I detach from the shame I feel and wallow in failure.
Why am I recording this today? It’s Friday and I’ve made a tiny change and it’s unexpectedly working right now. I’ve recognized it’s working and why. That means I have to share it.
My hope is that this will continue and I’ll return to my creative life.Continue Reading
(I’m learning to be more vigilant. I thought I posted this Podcast this past Monday, but it never loaded. Sorry for the late drop.)
Today’s Podcast is about my mindset and how things like procrastination have impacted me and how I’m starting to learn how to overcome.
I was losing my voice during the recording so it’s a little rough. I’m working on improving the quality.

Today’s episode features my interview with Joseph R. Ferrari PhD of
De Paul University of Chicago and our discussion of procrastination.
Procrastination has had an adverse effect on my life and especially
on my creative projects. It has prevented me from taking specific and
positive action more times than I care to admit.
Procrastination is by no means a singular point of failure for me. In
fact, the reason I decided to start this website as a blog and a podcast,
is because I need help dealing with all the bad habits and behaviors that
have held me back from achieving the personal and professional success I
believe I can attain.
I figured I surely can’t be the only writer struggling with their personal foibles
and demons. So I thought, “why not share this with others like me?”. If I’m
going to be asking other writers, will-be and successful, to share what has
hindered them and or how they overcome those issues, then I need to give back.
This podcast is a cry for help and hopefully an answer to the cries of others.
