You know, That Thing you want to work on. That Thing you dream of finishing. That Thing that’s sitting, unfinished (or unstarted) on your desk or your hard drive. Or, uh, a vague dream that exists only in your head.
You keep saying you “need to find the time” to work on That Thing. Well, actually, you know you need to make the time, cuz “finding” is too passive, but…
YOU HAVEN’T DONE IT YET.
You haven’t made the time. Or That Thing.
Welllll. Are you ready for a little bit of tough love? Cuz I’ve got a pair of facts for you:
- Unless you seriously commit, That Thing will never exist
- But… unless you give up on it and let it go, That Thing will kick around your headspace forever and sap your energy like a little guilt-and-procrastination vampire
IN OTHER WORDS: THAT THING, UNDONE, WILL PLAGUE YOU FOREVER.
You’ll just be tootling along in your generally happy daily routine when *ZAP!* you’ll feel a sharp prick of regret and guilt and “I should really do That Thing.” Forever. Ouch.
So you need to either finish That Thing, or let it go.
ARE YOU READY TO LET THAT THING GO? TO GIVE UP ON IT FOREVER?
To accept that it will never exist, or if it does, it will be because somebody else did it… not you?
THEN IT’S TIME TO HITCH UP YOUR GROWN-ASS ADULT PANTIES (GAP) AND GET SERIOUS.
Now, I’m not one of those “productivity coaches” who will yell at you that you’re inadequate. You are absolutely up to this challenge. It’s perfectly normal to struggle with starting a project, staying the course, and finishing. Very little in our modern lives prepares us to work alone for an extended period with a delayed reward.
Repeat: You are normal. Your struggles are normal.
And those struggles are not a personal failing, and they’re not eternal.
It's within your power.
YOU CAN LEARN THE SKILLS YOU NEED TO START, FINISH, AND SHIP.
And I’m here to help. I’ve already helped thousands of readers and students get off their butts, make a plan, execute it and……… ship. I even wrote a book about it.
