Which is this: Many of us have more than one responsibility to ourselves, our families, our workplace, not to mention our manuscripts. How do you keep it all straight? How do you keep all the pistons firing at the right timing? Because, let's face it, when one misfires the whole thing comes to a rather uninspiring halt.
Here's my advice (not that you were asking): Keep your perspective. If you have a belief in God, don't be afraid to ask for His advice and direction. If you don't, you still have an inward guide, a conscious that tells you what is right and wrong. Remember that success isn't always measured with a credit next to your name and that a little selflessness goes a long way. In the words of Conan O'Brien during his last night hosting "The Tonight Show" slightly paraphrased.... "But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen....."
