Well, I didn't do very well this year with finishing anything!!! I've promised myself to master my time better and to finish a project or two in 2016. I've bought this gorgeous planner to help me, but, as usual, I am afraid to write in it, afraid to mess it up!! LOL
If you know of a trick or two to help you finish a task or project, please share.
There are a bunch of Web sites that help motivate us to finish projects, so I will try to see if one really pulls me in and I can actually stay with it. Tried some over the years and none really force me to "get it done."
I haven't written all of 2015's projects that I've started, but as I clean up my studio, I'll add them. Guess I should go ahead and make a tab for 2016 - is that negative thinking? Will I start a new project without finishing it? Yes, that's just silly to think I won't. LOL
Which sites help you motivate yourself? More than one? Please share. I don't want to miss any of them that might help me.
I think I'd like to be accountable in some way. Should I post a daily goal, be it ever so small? There's a JOT - Just One Thing that I could do every day that could help me be accountable. Does anyone really want to read 365 posts about my excuses why nothing was done that day? Maybe, maybe not. LOL
Is there someone that wants to be my buddy that is also struggling with sticking with all your projects? Maybe start a group blog where we each post a before-after pic once we proclaim our daily/weekly/monthly goal? I probably need to check in every day, but we could all choose our own deadlines.
So, how do you stop yourself from starting a wonderful, new, pretty project instead of working on something that truly needs to be finished? I dream of so many projects that I'd love to work on, but I seem to have trouble dreaming of a finished project. Why don't I dream in that vain?
Help!!! I promise to do better in 2016, maybe the first thing is to post more often? Make a list of all my UFO's, they are in the hundreds. Sign.
Advice, anyone? I've forgiven myself and moving on in 2016.
