Wrap it up! Share it! Get it done!
For me there are plenty of times that I feel unmotivated to do anything.
To help create momentum I will make myself a five or seven point list of the things that I want to achieve in the day.
As soon as I start to feel unmotivated I have a look at that list and refocus myself.
Somedays I need to look at the list every five minutes, while other days I can go three hours.
What is your go-to motivation tool to assist you to achieve your goals?
It does not need to be complex, however it needs to work for you and it needs to show results.
The other day I listened to Marie Forleo’s interview with Tim Ferriss and interestingly they discussed the importance of specific goals and measurements. Vague quotes of grandeur will not get you off your seat and moving. It needs to be specific and acheiveable. Also the definition of risk by Tim was interesting. He said words along the lines of “will this cause irreversable outcomes”. The consequence of this for him was that many activities he had previously avoided he now saw that he could do.
Perhaps you could consider this when you are concerned about putting your book out to the world. You have to start somewhere. So start, finish, ship and share.
What happens when you reframe a project? Can you look at what you are doing from another angle and make it achieveable sooner? What do you need to stop doing, in order to start doing what you really need to do and make your project (in this case a book) happen?
Life is a bunch of choices.
What you choose will determine your outcome.
What will you choose to do?
Me, I am choosing to review my planning for 2018 and see what I have considered writing about and check what I should delete and what I need to do to get momentum.
