I don't know about you, but I have a tough time completing and 'checking off' items from my 'projects list', things my older smb needs.
Like everyone with full lives, this list competes for my resources, time, money, energy, with several other things that need the same.
I found a way to get going and keep pushing through, that dates back to my VW camper days, that works for me. I wounder what other guys and gals use to keep pushing through a tough project, without getting burned out.
I plan a trip. with a date. I make an ordered list of things that must get done before I shove off. I budget $$ and time for each task. A is a must, B good to finish, C usually small things that are nice to haves
. I include all the pre-trip and vehicle maintenance things (ie; service the porta potti, bleach and flush out the fresh water tank, air up tires, oil change, new cord for the GPS unit) on the same list.
Then I add some 'stretch goals' of things I'd like
to complete if time allows, but are absolutely necessary.
I'm about to leave for an 8day Nevada desert with my gal, and I'm looking back at the last 5wks worth of things accomplished, and wondering how I got them all finished in such a short amount of time. I even completed 2 things off the 'stretch goal' list
So what about you?
What technique do you use to keep your projects rolling?
