Burn the boats. (Tony Robbins)


“If you want to take the island you need to burn the boats.” —Tony Robbins.Sep 18, 2017

I didn’t do that. As a result, it has taken me years to finish Book 4 of the Daoine Maithe series. I have thought a lot about “burning the boats” and the implications. I genuinely think this is a good strategy if there are not hungry kids, mortgages, bills, and other commitments involved. If I was the only person to be impacted by “burning the boats” I would do it in a second and sometimes I longed to do this. As it is, my boat burning strategy was a little different. In the time it’s taken me to finish off the book, the kids have grown up so much, my dance studio has flourished, and I have written another trilogy for middle-grade. Now I can burn the boats without sinking the family.
