It’s DO THE WORK month in the Starring Role Academy.
There will be products launched.
Self-care regimens implemented.
Podcasts RElaunched (*raises hand*).
And a whole host of other things I will hold in sacred confidence.
But the point is... work will be done.
Hey. I know. Oh, how I know. Steve Pressfield said it best and it’s a drum we ALLL bang on.
Why? Because nothing happens without actually doing the work.
In the Academy, we’ve set ourselves up pretty well by claiming the goals, meeting our internal critics (and the Impostor Complex... daily), bolstering our sense of capacity, and gathering our cast.

So now there’s nothing to it but to do it.
This is where the rubber meets the road.
The undeniable precipice of the DOING.
We’ve been here plenty of times, haven’t we?
Hired the personal trainer.
Signed up for the course.
Bought the book.
But if we don’t show up to the work, or lift the weights, or engage with the community, or crack the spine, we don’t get where we say we want to go.
And boy oh boy...that’s precisely what our Impostor Complex was counting on.
Action, Loves. It’s only action that counts.
Because the work doesn’t work unless you do it.
PS - Speaking of “doing the work”, I have signed up for Rachel Cargle’s #dothework challenge. I’m not excited to face my own privilege and white supremacy. Which means it’s time to do so. Stay tuned.
Grateful for this big ol’ shout out from the one and only Michelle Mazur. Listen in as she talks about the three key things she’s done to completely transform her mindset (and her results) in 2017.
And Casey Erin Wood shares how she is getting the second draft of her book done this month in the Academy, which is to say with planning, tracking, and accountability. DOING THE WORK. GORGEOUS.
Did I tell you about the best pad thai I’ve ever had? Had some friends over Saturday night and we were shown how to do it. WAYYYY easier than I had thought. (But it’s pretty involved shopping to be certain.) Trick I’ve learned is to SOAK the noodles...not boil them. Game-changer.
