In my last blog, I spoke how accountability can help us deal with this perpetual “getting ready” mentality. And yet – sometimes accountability isn’t enough for us to move forward. And even when we are making strides towards our goal, we may not be able to sustain our momentum. Here’s another idea:
Set yourself up for success. Yes, we can use all sorts of excuses to not start a project. But there is something to be said for knowing what we need. For example, I like to write in our study – that overlooks our beautiful garden. Being able to see outdoors seems to “open my mind up” to new ideas, creativity, and expansive thoughts. You may find that doing work at a coffee shop can be a productive space for you. Or you may find that having your favorite beverage is what you need to get the juices flowing. (Pardon the pun!).
For your next project, what can you do to set yourself up for success?
