That was just part of the internal conversation this morning. The mental gyrations of do I start with making an apron, or a bag or do I just mediate about what I want to do with my business and what direction to go in. Or, or, or.
Or do I just make another excuse for not meditating, not doing the work, not moving forward in my business, because well, if I stop the excuses, then I just might succeed. I might just make something amazing, something that someone else might like too, something that someone might want to buy. Something that even maybe a bunch of people might like, and a bunch of people might buy. Yikes!
I know I’m not the first person on the planet that has gone through this. There are literally hundreds of books written about how to motivate yourself out of whatever stuck-ness you’re in. I guess it’s just my turn, again, to move through this resistance, as Steven Pressfield would call it. To stop the fiddling around, stop the excuses, stop the self distracting behaviors and just start, something!
So, I’ve dug out a pattern that I’ve never done before, I’m digging through my denim fabric stash, because that’s the type of fabric called for, and I’m going to start. Open the pattern, pull out the fabric and just make the apron to see if I like making aprons. If I don’t well, I’ll only make one. If I do, maybe I’ll make more and put my embellished stamp on them.
If I want something else than an apron, I have a cool messenger bag pattern I’ve been wanting to try and lord knows, I have more denim fabric than you can shake a stick at. I knew those three giant boxes of Levi Strauss denim from the rummage sale would pay off.
This is gonna be fun.
So what do you do to get beyond your stuck-ness or distracting behaviors? Leave a comment, I could use some new tricks.
