I’ve been obsessed with finally finishing my first ever e-book. I’ve been ‘going to do this’ for some time and seriously started working on it late last year.
Alas, while Procrastion walks beside me, Persistent beckons in the distance. I needed motivation to step up my pace, leave Procrastination in the dust and grab hold of Persistence or I was never going to finish this project. Here are three things I did to help me out.
- I dusted off an old motivational quote that always served me in the past and posted it on my vision board above my desk where I do most of my work. I read it everyday and it worked.
- I started blogging about it, so I’d have to follow through.
- I called a writer friend of mine (thank you Joyce Norman), who was glad to call or message me for progress reports 2 sometimes 3 times a week.
I finished my book and uploaded it to Amazon’s Kindle platform earlier this month. Yay. Moving on to next project.
Question: How do you avoid procrastination, and keep motivated to finish your projects?
