What long-term goal or plan are you "working on" that you have really been tempted to quit? Maybe it's starting a blog, sending customer Christmas cards, learning to make videos, or saving up for OnStage.
It's a slow process, but quitting won't speed it up.
Here's a couple of tips for getting restarted:
1. Decide if it was really important enough to do in the first place. If it was an ill-fitting or unrealistic goal, you shot yourself in the foot before you even began. What was your motivation to start this project? Is it still a worthy goal even though it's months or even years later?
2. Figure out exactly where your roadblocks are. What is stopping you from working on this? Are you waiting on something or someone else to do their part? Do you need a specific tool or program? Do you need to make a change in your daily schedule? If you don't know WHY you stopped, you'll never be able to progress further.
3. Remind yourself of the rewards. You must have had an end goal in sight when you decided to work on this area. If there aren't rewards built in, like a bonus or earning a trip, then you need to self-reward. The prize should be proportionate to the size of the task. Big jobs deserve big rewards. There has to be a payoff that we believe in enough to get us through the "don't wannas" and around those roadblocks.
