Replace Obsession with Finishing
Today, I am replacing obsession with “follow through to finish.” When something isn’t working, I waste hours trying to fix it. If at first, I don’t succeed, try two more times, then walk away and accomplish something else; preferably something with lots of physical action.
Walk Away and Allow the Answer
Of course, it is necessary to fix what doesn’t work, but walking away allows the answer to come out of the blue. Usually when I am working on something that is completely unrelated to the issue.
The Finish Projects Diet
Following through on a project day after day until completion accomplishes something and boosts self-esteem. My live is weighed down with unfinished projects.
The best diet on earth is to eat ice cream at least once every day, and clean up the list of unfinished projects.
