Reaching Your Goals
I started stressing over the amount of time I’d just spent on this story and more doubts developed. “Why am I wasting my time?”
I decided to take a thirty minute break. I lay down on the couch, closed my eyes, and thought over the situation. I went over the list in my head of what I needed to accomplish this week and realized I was making it appear worse than it actually was. I got up, grabbed a notepad, listed each day of the week. I wrote down for each day three tasks I needed to complete.
My week’s goals were easily placed with room for extra tasks. I relaxed and went back to work.
Are you stressing over your writing? Are the doubts flying at you from all directions?
Take a moment to regroup and then jump back in. It always seems worse than it actually is.
