Break a project into small parts
Sometimes a project is so huge or so mundane getting started is just so hard. But breaking into smaller parts might help. This can be done with two different approaches:
1. Break the project up into small and obvious sections. In the case of my DVD project, one way to break this project into smaller pieces would be to tackle a couple of months at a time. I can set mini-goals of working on only three months in one sitting. When I am done with three months, I quit for that time that I am working and tackle another three months the next time.
2. Set time limits. If I work on the DVD project each night for 25 minutes – no more – no less, over time I will start to see results. It is important however to set realistic time limits. Twenty-five minutes might not work if you are grouting the tile in your bathroom. But you will be amazed at how many weeds you can pull in an eight minute chunk if you do it every afternoon.
Hope your week is going well.
