Wisdom of Kammbia 3.13: An Inspirational Message For the New Year

by | Jan 1, 2013 | Wisdom From Kammbia Column, Writing | 2 comments


Since, this is the first blog post of the new year. I thought I would share an inspirational message.

I heard this on a radio interview a couple of nights ago:

“Graham Greene, the great novelist, wrote a page a day everyday. After he wrote his page, he spent the rest of time living his life. Even though Greene didn’t write long novels, he published twenty-six novels during his lifetime.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned from his philosophy is that predictability and routine are just as important as inspiration and passion.  For some reason, predictability and routine get a bad reputation in our modern culture.

However, predictability and routine in a reverse psychological way actually increases and enhances inspiration, passion, and creativity.

My hope for anyone this new year whether trying to become the next Graham Greene, finishing their college degree, becoming an entrepreneur or anything else that you want to achieve is that you find a routine and stick to it.  And just like Graham Greene, you will be surprised on how much you can accomplish in a lifetime.”

Happy New Year to all my readers!
