One of my triggers is: “I can do it tomorrow.” This can apply to any activity, but is especially true of a project for myself. I’m more likely to complete something I’ve committed to do for someone else than for myself. I don’t make a project, at least one I view as hard and not fun, as a priority. I continue to find other activities that become more important, to the point of never starting the overwhelming, boring project.
To counter this belief and feelings, I need a new perspective and belief. I also need to make projects determined by me to be a priority, and follow through with completing a project before starting a new project.
I can schedule the project on days on my calendar and work on it for 15 minutes, determine whether to continue working on it longer, or move to another task, knowing that I’m working on that project, a little at a time.
Àlso, I can change my perspective to a positive viewpoint and modify my belief.
