The Girl Narrative launches May 1st at 11:00pm……that means I have 29 days, 2 hours, 40 minutes and 38 seconds (and counting) until it launches and all of my focus is targeted towards doing whatever I need to do to allow it to launch on time.
My graphic designer has begun to polish the design, my web designer has the formatting complete and is beginning to set up the website, and I am transferring story after story into article form.
It is hard to not look down at my countdown and not immediately drop whatever I am doing and begin working on my project yet again. I find myself always wanting to go back to it… I always want to develop it and I never want to stop working on it.
It is now 29 days, 2 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds until The Girl Narrative launches (yes….this is how I have been since April 1st).
I am both elated and utterly terrified. I am constantly going through the list of things that could go wrong, and the thought of someone being inspired by this organization.
So I put my focus forward for the week:
- I have two interviews this week (One of which is Gauri Kapoor, Founder and CEO of The Girl and I)
- I am transferring all of my interviews from audio to text (using Transcribe)
- I am setting up social media platforms (a Facebook, an Instagram, and a Twitter)
- I am having my web designer set up the basics of the website
- And…I am remembering to breathe.
So I breathe and always keep going forward. Through lists and baby steps comes the bigger picture. Just because the finish line is getting closer, doesn’t mean I lose my pace.
Inspired by staying calm,
Founder and CEO of The Girl Narrative
