OctPoWriMo Day 21

 “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.” – Jim Rohn

The gap between my goals and what I've been able to accomplish feels at times too great. Even with OctPoWriMo, I've found myself disappointed in what I intended to do and what I have done. I think this is the first time in all the years I've been participating that I've missed a week straight of posting poems. Is that a lack of discipline? Maybe. The difference is that I am in a completely different job now and don't have the time I once had to devote to writing. That being said, I do agree with this quote. I just need to find a different bridge.
